Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare 4 horses

Rockstar has revealed another new trailer for upcoming Red Dead Redemption DLC, Undead Nightmare. The new trailer shows us what to expect from gameplay in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, which of course is lots of zombie killing.

The latest Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare also features an old-school creepy voice over saying “Prepare yourself, for demonic hordes from the Graveyard” and many other slightly cheesy, but oh so good phrases about the undead. You can see the new Red Dead Redemption: Undead Night mare trailer – The Graveyards – below.


Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare is set for release via download on October 26th. It’ll feature a new single player campaign in which John Marston tries to find a cure for the unexplained zombie plague. It’ll also feature new weapons, new outfits, new multiplayer modes and new ‘Missing Person’ side quests.

Rockstar has also revealed new information about the mythical creatures introduced in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare – the four horses of the Apocalypse, Pestilence, Famine, Death, and War. Each have their own special perks for John Marston to take advantage of in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, so long as he can tame them.

Death – With Hell following close behind, Death carries with him a violent wake that rattles through the skulls of the undead, causing a spectacular cranial explosion for any zombie it comes in contact with.

Famine – Attracting a swarm of insects wherever it travels, Famine’s thin shadowy frame and crimson eyes mask an everlasting stamina.

Pestilence – A ghastly harbinger of plague and disease that’s easily identifiable by its exposed wounds and ocular haemorrhaging, Pestilence possesses an exceptionally high pain threshold.

War – Given power to take peace from the earth, the fiery red horse known as War ignites a trail of flame upon all those in its path, turning the living and the undead alike into smouldering ash.

Sound fun, don’t they? Be sure to check out the first Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer for more insights into how the single player campaign is shaping up. You can also check out GameSpot for an exclusive Q & A about Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare with Rockstars’ Dan Houser.

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare release date confirmed

Red Dead Redemption: Undead NightmareUndead Nightmare, the expansion for Red Dead Redemption will be released on October 26th. The release of Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare in the run up to Halloween seems highly appropriate given the zombie based storyline! Rockstar has also revealed that Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare will also bring new multiplayer content and will be available on disc.

According to the Rockstar games website, the plot behind Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare is as follows:

“Seemingly overnight, a zombie plague ravages the once bountiful frontier, decimating the landscape and reawakening the dead. In towns, settlements, and outposts throughout the world, the uninfected citizens are left to fight for survival against waves of the undead.  John Marston must ride out into the vast and terrifying world and survive long enough to find a cure.”

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare will feature four different types of zombie, each with their own characteristics, and there will be variety of ‘infected’ animals for John Marston to deal with. Ammo can be scare in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare but this can be combated through the use of a new weapon – the blunderbuss – which can be loaded with the remains of fallen zombies.

Additionally, the deadly Tomahawk and the Explosive Rifle make a triumphant comeback and will be available exclusively for those who downloaded the Legends and Killers Pack and the Liars and Cheats Pack.

Rockstar say Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare will feature a variety of new missions, challenges and events. Undead Nightmare also twists the ‘Wanted’ side-missions of Red Dead Redemption, and replaces them with ‘Missing Person’, where the player must find a missing survivor lost amongst the throngs of undead.

The expansion pack will also feature new multiplayer content, with Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare introducing Undead Overun. It’s brand new multiplayer survival mode where waves of infected enemies attack and players must work together to stay alive against increasingly difficult odds. (Sounds a bit like the Call of Duty zombie mode doesn’t it?)

You can see the trailer for Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare here.

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare will be downloadable from Xbox Live for 800 points, and the PlayStation Network for £7.99. Alternatively, Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare will be available on a disc, along with the Outlaws to the End Co-Op Mission Pack, the Legends and Killers Pack, the Liars and Cheats Pack and all the Multiplayer Free Roam modes released to date.

There’s no release date for the Red Dead Redemption combined DLC pack yet, but it’ll cost £24.99 and oddly doesn’t even need the original Red Dead Redemption disc to play.

So Train2Game, what are your thoughts on the new details about Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare? Does the new multiplayer mode float your boat? Would you buy the DLC disc?

Rockstar reveal Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

Rockstar has released a trailer for Undead Nightmare, the upcoming single player DLC for their smash hit Red Dead Redemption. In short, Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer contains plenty of zombies and it looks good.

The Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer starts with John Marston telling what looks to be his family that “something funny’s going on out there” Then of course all Hell breaks losoe and we have Red Dead Redemptions’ mental grave robber Seth telling us that “The dead are risen” and a plague is turning into “Flesh Eating Crazies” That’s all we know about the plot of Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare for now.

With this being an Undead Nightmare, we of course get to see plenty of zombie action.  The townsfolk of are running scared and it seems that in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, John Marston is the only one that can stop the wild western zombie apocalypse.

The trailer also reveals that characters from Red Dead Redemption including, Bonnie McFarlane, Nigel West Dickens and Marshal Johnson will return in Undead Nightmare. The fact that the opening scene of the Undead Nightmare trailer is set in the Marston Range, it’s possible that Undead Nightmare fits into the latter stages of the Red Dead Redemption timeline.

Here’s the Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer in all its zombie glory.


Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare is set to include:

  • New single player missions and challenges
  • 8 new multiplayer zombie characters
  • Zombie animals unleashed into the world
  • New dynamic events
  • Brand new gameplay mechanics
  • Mythical creatures
  • A brand new secret location
  • New weapons
  • New multiplayer modes
  • 3 new outfits: Zombie Hunter, Union Suit, and Legend of the Apocalypse

The Rockstar website says that Red Dead Redemption will be available simultaneously for download via PlayStation®Network ($9.99) and Xbox LIVE® (800 Microsoft Points). There isn’t any release date yet, but we can probably assume that Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare will be available in the run up to Halloween.

Zombies seem to be very much the ‘in’ thing right now, with Call of Duty: Black Ops also set to feature a standalone zombie mode. Meanwhile, Dead Rising 2 has rather very successful, remaining in third place every week since it entered the UK Charts. In fact, Dead Rising 2 entered the top 10 in the same week that Red Dead Redemption finally dropped out of it for the first time since it was released back in May.

Perhaps if zombies aren’t your thing, you can check out the Red Dead Redemption: Liars and Cheats multiplayer DLC. Alternatively, you can watch this video about the making of music for Red Dead Redemption. Of course, it’s likely the same techniques have been used to create atmospheric music for Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare.

So Train2Game, what do you think of the Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare trailer? Is it a clever idea? Will the lure of zombies encourage you to return to the world of Red Dead Redemption? Or do you believe that Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare will ruin the ‘authentic’ western feel of the original game?
