Ordinarily, there's very little warning about apocalyptic zombie outbreaks. However, Take-Two Interactive today provided a courteous "heads up" of such an event, letting Red Dead Redemption players know that the Undead Nightmare downloadable game pack would be hitting the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Store on October 26 for $9.99 (800 Microsoft points).
For those averse to digital distribution in all its forms, the publisher also announced Undead Nightmare, a stand-alone disc compiling all four announced Red Dead Redemption add-on packs: Undead Nightmare, Outlaws to the End, Legends and Killers, and Liars and Cheats. The retail collection will also include all previously released multiplayer free roam modes and won't require a copy of the original Red Dead Redemption to play. When it arrives in stores, Undead Nightmare will sell for $30.
As the name implies, the Undead Nightmare Pack introduces zombies to the world of Red Dead Redemption with an entirely new single-player adventure. The storyline sees an undead plague sweep across the frontier, with protagonist John Marston charged with finding a cure. Additionally, it adds more animals to the game's biosphere, new "dynamic events," eight new zombie characters for use in multiplayer, and a new Undead Overrun cooperative mode.
