Red Dead gets double XP Halloween weekend

XP boosting on following the release of Undead Nightmare DLC

This week's release of the brilliant Undead Nightmare DLC expansion isn't all Red Dead Redemption fans have going for them this Halloween.

Rockstar has confirmed it's also marking the spooky season with a rank-boosting double XP weekend this weekend - starting 1PM Eastern this Friday (that's 6pm UK time on October 29), and ending 11:59 PM Eastern this Halloween Sunday October 31st (5am UK time on November 1).

We assume that applies to both platforms and all multiplayer modes, not just those of the zombie infested DLC update, but why would you be playing anything else on the night of ghouls and ghosts?

It's only £7.99 or 800 Microsoft Points, and it's the balls (as detailed in CVG's in-depth review).
