Rockstar's free thank you to the millions of fans that rampaged through the wild west in Red Dead Redemption drops September 13 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Now where's my warm and tender embrace?

The Myths & Mavericks pack adds a ridiculous amount of new content to Red Dead Redemption, including eight new multiplayer characters and 11 multiplayer maps, all completely free.
