Red Dead Online May Have Teased Undead Nightmare

Rockstar Games may be teasing Undead Nightmare for Red Dead Online with zombies showing up in-game.

Within a month after launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Western-themed action-adventure smash-hit title Red Dead Redemption 2 has added its multiplayer component Red Dead Online but it failed to be just as successful.

After brand-new Frontier Pursuits update is deployed earlier this month, many players have reported sighting of zombies in RDO and skeptical fans theorizes that developer/publisher Rockstar Games is teasing Undead Nightmare.

It starts with one Redditor noticing dead bodies lying around near swamp area after last week's update, which he originally thought to be a glitch. Then some more corpses were found that has pale blue skin and doesn't seem like glitch anymore.

The first zombie NPC that was ever sighted near swamp was not lying down and had grayish skin color. Also, Halloween is only months away from now, so it is possible that Rockstar is cooking something for their cowboy adventure.

Image of that creepy-looking zombie lady is made it to Twitter and players started speculating about it on social media.

Couple of more blue-skinned dead bodies found near Armadillo, which could later serve as a ground zero for an outbreak. They were all lying in a small hole in the ground for a while and couple of them was on a nearby wagon.

There is once instance where there are two glowing green-eyed dead bodies in a house that has been viciously murdered with their clothes and skin torn. Either it was a robber that killed them or an infected person before then they start turning.

Now whether their implementation is of a DLC expansion of original Red Dead Redemption or just a limited time event for upcoming Halloween season is not clear to anyone yet but these piles of corpses are real source of spook.

Rockstar launched Undead Nightmare as a paid DLC with single-player missions, events as well as some multiplayer game modes on Halloween of 2010 and within the premise of Red Dead Online, something similar is very much possible.

Dead by Daylight: Stranger Things Chapter DLC Out Now

Horrors of Upside Down has made it to Dead by Daylight in latest Stranger Things chapter DLC, out now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Underground Complex of Hawkins National Laboratory will now become a killing ground for the supernatural hunter from an alternate dimension called Upside Down that Nancy and Steve will try to get away from at any cost.

Demogorgon is a humanoid monstrosity that is quick and brutal, who creates portals on ground or wall and travels through them to reach its prey. It's very presence changes surrounding environment and even affects nearby survivors.

Many aspects of the series are awfully similar to themes of DBD that nicely blended into its current lore and 1vs4 gameplay. Stranger Things chapter also breaks a trend by adding a non-human killer for the first time with two unique survivors.

Picking up only Nancy and Steve from many fan-favorite characters was tough but it was their survival skills that made them a perfect fit. Harrington is more resilient to take beating whereas Wheeler is good at scouting and stealthy approach.
