    i think that even though this game is now about two years old we should still get some new DLC even though rockstar is already keeping us interested i think that maybe they could do more like adding even more things to multiplayer like:
    1. newer and cooler looking characters because while i like some of the characters they have i still find myself saying if only this was changed or that was changed such as for example in the main singleplayer game there are about 3 different long coats/dusters but in multiplayer the only one i can find is landon rickets so i would like to see more characters with proper west clothes and less top hats seeing as most of them are wearing them, in which i dont want them cut out just less of them

    2. as its been mentioned more mounts and guns would be another great addition such as a crossbow (i know it sounds weird but i think it would be cool seeing as it is an extrodinary weapon) and maybe some newer mounts that give the player more choice maybe even some strange mounts like one with wings (non-functional obviously)

    3. extra areas while the map is already big enough i would like to see some new areas added in to give chance to more kick ass scenery which would add to enjoyability + would be able for new ideas and more things to do to make the experience longer and more interesting. an idea i had was of maybe a boat that takes you to an island or something doesnt have to be a necassarily huge island in comparison to the last map but would also be big enough to not disappoint (not that it would), this would allow addition to the singleplayer cmapaign aswell, also the chance to introduce new weaponry and mounts

    4. more legend ranks. while 5 ranks is already enough i would like to see up to sommething like 10 so that it would give who have achieved that maximum rank to do it again and keep them playing and interested

    5. the little things like i would like to be able to go into a saloon on multiplayer and be able to get my character drunk with all my mates characters (as on singleplayer when i saw marston drunk for the first time i burst out laughing as he pottered around falling over basically anything in his way) with two or more people this would easily get lots of laughs. also, i would like to see some of the other mini games added to multiplayer such as ringer and possibly a new mini game based on the mission when you have to blow up the wagons with dynamite planted in the road (cant remember the name of the mission) as a sort of a tower defence but without the tower and with more like a strategy type thing as this opens to having to set of dynamite at the right time in the right position

    i feel like all these things would make the game better and more enjoyable all round and i would like to see these added for my benefit and other peoples for people that still play the game and a little temptation to the people who have it and dont play it anymore for them to take it out and revisit this truly wonderful game or convince more people to buy it and play it. i know that some of these things may not be possible or may be too difficult but i would like to see some of them if not all of them eventually, thats if rockstar hasn't given up on red dead redemption. i would also like to point out if i had to choose three of these it would be 1,3 and 5 (because i do love getting drunk on the game)
    p.s i accidentaly posted this somewhere else whoops so i thought i would post it here as well just so i was sure it would be seen

      awsome stuff rockstar this game is pure undiluted tits.
      am yet to play myths and mavericks but i came when I found out.

      heres my two cents
      if you make a another game or dlc pack which your bloody well should please include
      moar wagon action
      moar train action
      free roam friendly events like boxing and knife fights and knife jousting and drinking at the saloon oha nd duels ofcourse
      interactive prostitutes
      also an idle button so i can play the fiddle or drink whiskey when im waiting in ambush
      and moar wagon action

      Kind Regards

            Hey Rockstar, love your game Red Dead Redemption. I think I would love it 10x more if you added customization to RDR Multiplayer. Whenever I play, I always want to pick a guy that feels like a 'real' cowboy. I want i guy like Clint Eastwood or Russel Crow. I think they're awesome. See, you make characters that resemble characters (at least i think so) Like Red Harlow resembles Clint Eastwood, but i want a character that IS that character. That's why i think you should add 1 or both things.
            1. A GOOD player creator. Something that makes your character feel like you. Be able to customize hat style, color. Jacket, Shirt, Ties, suits, pants, leather chaps. Things like that. I want to be me as a cowboy. Also a face creator. Make able to create hair, eyes, eyebrows, face shape, facial hair. Everything.
            2. Create a Hollywood Hero category for characters. Have The famous Man With No Name(keep him unnamed when 'naming' him), Ben Wade(3:10 To Yuma), Colonel Mortimer(For a Few Dollars More), Tuco( The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly), Doc Holliday(Tombstone), Wyatt Earp(Tombstone), Johnny Ringo(Tombstone), Ethan Edwards(The Searchers), Also, The Kid in the quick and the dead. I'm a huge fan of western movies and of this game, and it has never let me down or gotten me bored. I played through the campaign about 4 times, and play it whenever i feel... I would hate to see the game get boring as it would stay the same without any new DLC. I appreciate the Myths and Mavericks Pack, but i think it was kind of cheap. I was hoping for a surprise of what fans are asking for, Undead Free Roam and MP Trains, which would be awesome. As you can see,I put a lot of thought into my suggestion, and i would hate to see it go unanswered. Another thing, games get old after lots of play of the same thing, so add some new areas to the map, or a gang hideout in The cave where Louisa is kept. that would be awesome. Also, NEW GUNS. Get the 1851 Navy, The Single Action Army, The Peacemaker. I want Revolvers to be the main game here, not the high power pistol where bullets are spammed from horseback. I think it would be cool for all the characters i mentioned above to have their own gun. Could be a special character pack where it includes the characters and their guns. The new guns could be a free dlc. That about covers it up. And Btw, when making a new game, make it Johns Outlaw Days, Not Jacks future. I hated playing as him and i think that game would suck.(Not that it wouldn't be fun, it just wouldn't be cowboy) Thanks a million guys. Your awesome.
            P.S. When making the next game comes around, please consider my list if it can't be put into Red Dead Redemption. I understand that im asking for a lot, but thats just to make my playing experience better.

              Best video game ever made, i will never get sick of it with all the add-ons. appreciate the freebies, you should charge for stuff too, we'll pay. Rockstar Sandiego is a domestic genius

                  somewhat off topic before, i have to ask, what about some stuff for those players like me who prefer to do free roam and co-op stuff?
                  • Jujumaticon September 15 2011, 12:04pmReplyFlag
                    for some reason i want to play as herbert moon on multiplayer, but i have to say this dlc looks good :)
                    hoping that i could use a herbert moon insult like "are you a jew mister? you look like a jew" :P

                      Rockstar, people on the red dead wiki are angry because they can't get the dlc on the playstation store, it won't show in europe. I manage to get it when the made a mistake bringing it out early, Also i can't get my guns to turn gold in single player after i downloaded the DLC.

                        PS3 users can access the DLC by going to the Playstaion Store> New Releases> Add-Ons> Red Dead Redemption.

                                I had been searching the PS store all day, then I just tried again through the RDR game menu (triangle then square) and it was there! :-) hope that helps any other Europeans unable to find it

                                  Thank you R* it was just a little frustration on my behalf as I thought it would be out on the forum release date. Also a little impatience from us Red Dead fans too. Thanks again for your support and for the free DLC

                                    Thanks Rock* i Love this game even if I didn't get this FREE DLC. Please continue with the Red Dead line as you have with grand theft.

                                        Thank you R*
                                        I apologise for some of the comments i've posted which have been out of line.
                                        I think the majority of us were just angered to the fact that we haven't been getting a response from anyone
                                        (not just you but PSN too)
                                        we are also very grateful for the patch on the glitches
                                        however RDR online via PSN is experiencing ALOT of faults since the patch
                                        such as Single carts appearing and glitching everywhere. I'm sure you already know about these and are working to fix them.
                                        Once again my apologies and i'm extremely eager to download this DLC
