First Red Dead Redemption co-op DLC already revealed

Red Dead Redemption and its "GTA of the Old West" antics won't be out until May 18, but Rockstar's already announced the first of three planned DLC expansions: a co-op mission pack for up to four players. Titled "Outlaws: Free to the End," the expansion will hit Xbox Live and PSN sometime in June. Oh, and it'll also be free.

While Red Dead's multiplayer currently features team-based matches and the ability to form up as "posses" in its free-roam mode, but out of the box there isn't any real structure to its co-op play. Downloading Outlaws to the End will add six new missions (along with new Achievements/Trophies) to the multiplayer, three of which publisher Rockstar revealed today.

In the Walton's Gold mission, players have to raid a mining camp and fill a minecart with gold before the place blows up, while in The River, you'll a raft ride through hostile encampments, capped off by a huge battle at a rebel stronghold. Finally, in Ammunition, you'll need to defend a little town against a heavy assault by Mexican Army artillery.

There's no word yet about further missions or a solid release date, but if it's timed right, this could add a fresh breath of life to Red Dead right about the time hardcore players will have finished with its story mode. And hey, if nothing else, the price tag of "nothing" should make this an automatic download for everyone who buys the game.

    Glad to see that the 360 didn't nab the DLC as an exclusive like GTA4 and Fallout 3. And it's free? Wha?

    Free DLC!?! SOMEBODY NOTIFTY ACTIVISION!!! Anyways, I'm really looking forward to this game. Hopefully this will be the first wild west game to be really good (not Call of Juarez decent)

    I fail to see the point in releasing the game without content they are already working on but I am certainly not going to complain about free stuff. Game is going to be great.
