"I recently sat down with Rockstar to play about an hour's worth of the upcoming expansion to Red Dead Redemption, dubbed Undead Nightmare. I was not prepared for how massive this downloadable add-on is. For just 10 bucks (800 Microsoft points), Rockstar is adding what nearly amounts to a whole new game. There's a roughly six hour storyline, complete with cutscenes and new music. There are all new enemies, mounts to ride, outfits to wear, side-quests and challenges. There's even new multiplayer content (which I can't talk about until next week). This download is, to put it succinctly, absolutely huge. And it's all going to be available October 26."

"Zombie horses are pretty sweet, but they're not what you'll wind up riding for long. Mythical creatures, including the four horses of the apocalypse, can be found in this add-on. I managed to find War, a horse with flames for hair that would ignite any zombies that shambled too close. Also up for grabs, if you can break them, are Death (it instantly explodes zombie heads on contact) and Famine and Pestilence (both have unlimited stamina and can't be killed)."

"Thankfully, there are some new weapons to use against them. Holy water, zombie bait, and boom bait are new items that can be tossed into a crowd for massive damage. There's also a blunderbuss that uses zombie bits and pieces as ammunition. Scavenge any killed zombie for parts and you'll get fingers, eyes and limbs to shove in this shotgun of sorts. It's easily the most powerful weapon in the game -- a single shot will cause any zombie to explode into a mist of blood. That also makes it so you can't scavenge any zombies killed with the blunderbuss, limiting its overall use."
