A long time ago, before an endless stream of online updates and re-releases, Rockstar Games used to make to this thing called "single-player DLC". It was a simpler, more magical time.

In 2010 Rockstar released its best DLC yet: Undead Nightmare. Undead Nightmare was a fantastic add-on for the equally fantastic Red Dead Redemption, one that turned the classic Western into a full-blown survival horror. When Red Dead Redemption 2 launched, fans assumed it was only a matter of time before we got a sequel to Undead Nightmare. They assumed wrong.

Take a look at some of the best Red Dead Redemption 2 wins and fails below!

Red Dead Redemption 2 released in 2018. It is now 2021, and Rockstar Games has made it pretty clear it would rather focus on updating Red Dead Online. That's fair enough; it's not as if Red Dead Redemption 2 is short on content. Even so, it would be wonderful to see Arthur Morgan and the gang dealing with a zombie attack.

That's where the fans come in. Tired of waiting for Rockstar to drop an official sequel, modders RedMaxBR and AClassySliceOfToast have dropped a handful of mods that turn Red Dead Redemption 2 into an all-new Undead Nightmare. Undead Towns transforms the settlements and villages of the game into post-apocalyptic nightmare fuel. Meanwhile, Undead Blackwater turns the town into the world's only safe zone, and Undead Nightmare Camps litters the world with makeshift forts.

The modders recommend using these alongside the Rampage Trainer, which gives the game a full Halloween makeover. There are also plenty of zombie horde mods available if you're after the full Undead Nightmare experience. It might not be the official sequel we were hoping for, but at this stage I'll honestly take what I can get.
