‘Red Dead Redemption’ Free DLC, ‘Myths And Mavericks,’ Detailed

It was teased back at the end of June, but it seems Rockstar’s promised free DLC pack for “Red Dead Redemption” is finally heading our way. Titled “Myths and Mavericks,” the pack will include a whopping 14 new maps for play in multiplayer, as well as eight new character skins, letting players take on the roles of some of the memorable NPCs from the campaign. The pack is scheduled to release on September 13 for Xbox Live and PSN.

The list of new maps to be included in “Myths and Mavericks” are as follows, with the last three being returning maps that can now be played in the Stronghold mode.

Cochinay – Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout, Stronghold
Nekoti Rock – Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout
El Presidio – Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout
Plainview – Gold Rush, Shootout, Gang Shootout
Gaptooth Mine – Shootout, Gang Shootout
Pike’s Basin – Shootout, Gang Shootout
Rio Bravo – Shootout, Gang Shootout
Perdido – Hold Your Own, Grab the Bag
Benedict Point – Hold Your Own, Grab the Bag
Beecher’s Hope – Stronghold
Torquemada – Stronghold
Armadillo – Stronghold
Chuparosa – Stronghold
Tumbleweed – Stronghold

As for the new playable characters, here’s the rundown:

Landon Ricketts
Vicente DeSanta
Drew MacFarlane
Deputy Eli
Deputy Jonah
Javier Esquella

Pretty sure there will be a run on Landon Ricketts, what with him being the biggest bad ass in the “Red Dead” universe, though he may require a pretty high experience level to unlock. Thankfully Rockstar has been running bonus XP weekends pretty much non-stop lately, so getting to that top level shouldn’t be too hard. Now that I think about it, I have been seeing many more zebras lately.
