Earlier today, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick provided investors with insight into the downloadable content support for Red Dead Redemption, revealing it to be part calculated and part improvised after the open-world Western's May 2010 launch. The publisher followed that up today by announcing what is likely the final phase of the plan: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year editions featuring every scrap of paid and free DLC for the game.
Set for release October 11 in North America and October 14 internationally, the comprehensive edition of Red Dead Redemption will sell for $50 and include the core game with a new "hardcore" single-player mode, the Undead Nightmare zombie-infested add-on campaign and multiplayer modes, all preorder and postrelease content packs, and the formerly PS3-exclusive Solomon's Folly single-player gang hideout and challenges.
Red Dead Redemption follows former outlaw John Marston as he attempts to track down some of his former partners in crime at the behest of government agents who have taken his family captive. Undead Nightmare features its own storyline, with an undead plague sweeping across the frontier and Marston charged with finding a cure.
