You guys remember them, The War Horse, The Deadly Assassin Outfit, and The Golden Guns Weapon Pack. Each of these items were originally only available as pre-order bonuses for Red Dead Redemption but after the fans asked for it Rockstar complied. Starting April 12th you can look for them to start appearing on both the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Each item will cost $.99 each on PSN and 80 MP on XBL. They should be fully available across all territories on both platforms within 24-48 hours thereafter based on the networks’ respective update cycles. Rockstar admits that it took them a little longer to get these out as DLC than they would have liked but better late than never right? Who’s picking these babies up Tuesday, for a total $3 bucks you can buy all three, how can you not?
John Marston’s Deadly Assassin outfit causes your Dead Eye meter to regenerate at twice the speed. With more Dead Eye, you have more time to place each shot with total accuracy, making you the deadliest gunslinger in any fight.
Available for use in the Red Dead Redemption Single Player story, the player who wields the Golden Guns receives more Fame for each kill. The more Fame you get, the more in-game side missions become available. So there will be more opportunities to duel, more kidnapped townsfolk to rescue and you can bribe lawmen for less.
There are countless horses to be found in the massive world of Red Dead Redemption, but none is stronger, faster or tougher than the War Horse. Whether storming gang hideouts, exploring the wilderness for hidden treasure, or outrunning the law, the War Horse gives gunslingers an advantage in nearly every situation.
