Rockstar’s hugely-successful Red Dead Redemption will be adding a new piece of DLC for free.

Titled Myths & Mavericks Bonus Pack, it will be released in September as part of Rockstar’s way in thanking their fans for all the support.

“The Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack will feature new fan-favourite multiplayer characters by popular demand (including a certain grizzled ol’ gunslinger) as well as new multiplayer locations for players of Deathmatch, Grab the Bag, Gang matches and other popular online modes to get busy in,” Rockstar explained.

The development studio also confirmed that there will be a title update patch that will reintroduce the original Undead Overrun multiplayer mode settings.

The DLC will be made available on both Xbox Live and PSN, and is being released “as a show of appreciation for the awesome long-term support for the game’s multiplayer modes since its release in 2010”.
