New York, NY - August 10, 2010 -- Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today announced Red Dead Redemption’s Legends and Killers Pack is now available for digital download from the Xbox LIVE ® online entertainment network* and PlayStation ® Network.
“With Legends&Killers we wanted to provide a wealth of new content for fans of Red Dead Redemption,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games.“We took care to pick out areas that were unique and exciting and then polished them to provide the best possible multiplayer experience."
The Legends and Killers Pack doubles the amount of competitive multiplayer territories with nine new map locations that are weapon-balanced specifically for multiplayer and packed with free-for-all and team-based challenges. New locations vary from the fog-filled riverside at Thieves’ Landing to the modern metropolis of Blackwater. Eight classic personalities from 2004’s Red Dead Revolver return as multiplayer characters, including fan favorites Red Harlow, Jack Swift, Annie Stoakes and Shadow Wolf, among others. Available in competitive multiplayer, free roam and single-player modes, the Tomahawk, a deadly new projectile weapon, introduces more ways to eliminate the competition. In addition to gameplay challenges, the pack also presents additional opportunities to earn Achievements and Trophies.
Red Dead Redemption was released on May 18, 2010 to critical acclaim. Seth Schiesel of The New York Times claimed the Western epic to be a“tour de force.”
Game Informer proclaimed Red Dead Redemption“rightly
