Red Ded Zombies?

Red Dead Zombies

The latest DLC for Red Dead Redemption confuses me:

Seemingly overnight, a undead 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. John Marston must ride out into the vast and terrifying world and survive long enough to find a cure.

This sounds like a fusion of the game and the TV show "The Walking Dead". It might be fun to play - but boy, it just doesn't seem to fit in at all with the basic premise of the game. Not to mention this: by the end of Redemption, Marsters is ded anyway. So is this more or less an alternate history that pops up when he was about to be whacked at the end?

Now you know why I'm confused....

I just started watching "The Walking Dead" (Comcast - OnDemand); looks promising. As far as games go (I have a PS3) I started Red Dead but put it down to complete Borderlands; I haven't even opened up my New Vegas yet.

Plus, I haven't gotten into DLCs. I have a fear of the PSN or, more accurately, an acknowledgement of my video game vice. ;-)

I haven't played the DLC yet, but it is my understanding that it takes place while Marsten is at home before he is killed. I think the idea is that the zombie outbreak occurs and Marsten's wife is affected so he sets out to find a cure. So he finds a cure and everything is back to normal by the time the events of the main game pick up again.
