Red Dead Redemption 2 still doesn’t have any meaningful download content, just online updates for the persistent world that is Red Dead Online. We got some teases last year that seemed to suggest Rockstar was working on something zombie-related for Red Dead 2, but nothing really ever came of it. So no Undead Nightmare 2, unfortunately.
This year could be a little different though as many zombie models have been found inside the game’s data. Not only that, but audio files have also been scavenged from deep within the game’s code, and it all points towards something called ‘Army of Fear.’
This has all come from the YouTube channel Red Dead Guides, but even they don’t really know what this all means. Does it mean zombies are coming to Red Dead Redemption 2? Will there be an Undead Nightmare 2? Or will it be a Red Dead Online update? The latter is the most likely. Rockstar hasn’t released any single-player DLC for a decade, and it’s not likely to change anytime soon.
With GTA V pulling in massive amounts of cash with its online mode, single-player DLC was ditched in favour of pushing the game’s online world and its in-game Shark Cards. Red Dead Redemption 2 is in the same situation, although it doesn’t make as much money as GTA V, there’s still gold in them hills and Rockstar will keep digging until we hand it over.
The original Red Dead Redemption got a fantastic single-player DLC story called Undead Nightmare. It was fantastic, truly. Undead Nightmare stood alone as its own thing, not really connected to the main game, but it was well received by fans and critics, and many, including us lot here at Pure PlayStation, hoped that Rockstar would follow it up with the release of Red Dead Redemption 2.
It’s not looking likely, though, and if you want to shoot zombies in Red Dead 2, you’re probably going to have to do it online with xx420MILFSlayerxx. That’s one of my alternate accounts. See you there!
