The data-miners at YouTube channel Red Dead Guides have been digging through new game files and discovered nearly 50 different zombie models that haven’t yet been released. As October is arriving soon, this presumably is going to be saved for a “Fear” Halloween event in the game.
The models are labeled “Army of Fear,” but it isn’t clear if they’re being used for a new game mode or for some larger temporary overhaul of Red Dead Online. The game has received continuous content updates that added things like missions, hunting events, and new gear, but this could be enough to get former players interested in the game again.
The Red Dead series is no stranger to the undead. A standalone expansion called Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare was released back in 2010, just about five months after the main game. It added a new zombie campaign to the game that fit with the western setting surprisingly well. To date, we haven’t seen true expansions for Red Dead Redemption 2, with Rockstar focusing all its efforts on free content updates, instead.
