Here’s a little about Undead Nightmare:

Zombies and more zombies. Game titles never seem to get tired of them. This DLC introduces hours of a new single-player storyline and brand new multiplayer content. Seemingly overnight, a zombie plague ravages the once bountiful frontier, decimating the landscape and reawakening the dead. In towns, settlements and outposts throughout the world, the uninfected citizens are left to fight for survival against waves of the undead. Mission: John Marston must ride out into the terrifying world and survive long enough to find a cure.

The make the challenge formidable, this one comes with four zombie classes, each possessing unique characteristics, attacks, and defenses. Alongside zombies, there are mythical creatures, bears and wolves thrown in. Taking down the undead requires non-traditional weaponry, including the new Blunderbuss, which can be loaded with looted remains of fallen zombies. The deadly Tomahawk and the Explosive Rifle make a comeback and will be available exclusively for those who downloaded the Legends and Killers Pack and the Liars and Cheats Pack.

The new single-player narrative also features new challenges, quests, and ambient events, including Missing Persons, where the player must find a missing survivor lost amongst the throngs of undead. New competitive multiplayer and multiplayer free roam content includes Undead Overrun, a brand new multiplayer survival mode where waves of infected attack and players must work together to stay alive against increasingly difficult odds.
