Bucking the trend of awarding "Game of the Year" editions only to games that never received that honorific anywhere, from anyone ('sup Two Worlds 2
?) Rockstar has just announced Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition
, a $50 compendium of all of the RDR content released to date, available on Xbox 360 and PS3 this October.
In case you've lost track of the gargantuan game's extensive extras, Rockstar has helpfully catalogued them in the announcement. Ready? Deep breath: The popular Undead Nightmare DLC pack; the Legends and Killers Pack; the Liars and Cheats Pack; the Outlaws To The End Co-Op Mission Pack; the previously PS3-only
Solomon's Folly gang hideout; and the recently released Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack
. In the off-chance that such a gaming feast hasn't sated your appetite, the Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition
also includes a "brand-new hardcore single-player mode."
North American gamers can pick up the pack on October 11, while international riff-raff will have to wait until October 14. We didn't tame this wild frontier for nothing, guys.
