Rockstar has sent word that some long-awaited DLC for Red Dead Redemption will arrive next week on consoles.

The DLC, which includes items originally released as preorder exclusive content, was already supposed to have been released; however it’s a bit late due to some “unanticipated technical delays”.

PS3 and Xbox 360 users can purchase the DLC on April 12 for $.99 and 80 MS Points, respectively. European PSN users can purchase the DLC on Wednesday, April 13.

Here’s what’s included:

  • The Deadly Assassin Outfit: John Marston’s Deadly Assassin outfit causes your Dead Eye meter to regenerate at twice the speed. With more Dead Eye, you have more time to place each shot with total accuracy, making you the deadliest gunslinger in any fight.
  • The Golden Guns Weapon Pack: Available for use in the Red Dead Redemption Single Player story, the player who wields the Golden Guns receives more Fame for each kill. The more Fame you get, the more in-game side missions become available. So there will be more opportunities to duel, more kidnapped townsfolk to rescue and you can bribe lawmen for less.
  • The War Horse: There are countless horses to be found in the massive world of Red Dead Redemption, but none is stronger, faster or tougher than the War Horse. Whether storming gang hideouts, exploring the wilderness for hidden treasure, or outrunning the law, the War Horse gives gunslingers an advantage in nearly every situation.
