If you pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption or managed to get hold of the Limited Edition then you'll already have the Deadly Assassin Outfit, Golden Guns Weapon Pack and the War Horse, but if you missed out on that exclusive content, then you'll soon have the chance to snap it up via the Xbox Live Marketplace.
These items will be available from Tuesday April 12th (AKA tomorrow) and rolled out across all territories over the subsequent 24-48 hours. The Deadly Assassin Outfit gives John Marston a sexy new stetson, dusty brown duds and a fetching eyepatch, as well as regenerating your Deadeye meter at twice the speed, while the Golden Guns Weapon Pack turns your pistols and rifle a lovely golden colour, earning you more Fame for each kill. And the more Fame you acquire, the more varmints will want to duel with you and the more side quests you'll unlock.
And finally, the War Horse is the toughest damn nag in the whole of Red Dead Redemption. It's the fastest, strongest and most resilient horse in the game making it invaluable for storming gang hideouts or busting bandits. The Deadly Assassin Outfit, Golden Guns Weapon Pack and War Horse will be available from April 12th for 80 Microsoft Points apiece.
In other news, Rockstar has also promised that LA Noire's pre-order DLC will be made available as DLC much, much sooner than Red Dead Redemption's.
