Out here in the Wild West, things just got a little more evolved in the set of upcoming DLC packs, with the first one starting in August.

To keep their fans from not getting bored, Rockstar Games has devised a four-pack set of downloadable content that will give players a reason to continue one of the biggest western shoot’em ups. Starting with the “Legends and Killers Pack” that will release on the first of August, they will continue with three more DLC packs, culminating in a zombie-like spree of “Undead Nightmare Pack” that hits both PSN and XBL late this fall.

While  all of the details have not been ironed out yet in terms of when each pack will be released or how much each will cost, we do have a detailed description of what you can expect in each pack. Take a look and see which one catches your eye the most.
