Rockstar games has just announced details for a new Red Dead Redemption DLC pack. Titled ‘Liars & Cheats,’ the upcoming pack contains a mishmash of new features and options for multiplayer.
Poker and Liars’ Dice games can now be played with friends. According to Rockstar, this was ‘one of the most fan-requested features.’ Horse races have also been added to multiplayer. Four new hunting grounds, seven new gang hideouts, and a new weapon titled ‘the exploding rifle’ have also been added. But the biggest addition in Liars & Cheats is the new Stronghold multiplayer mode, which pits two posses against each other as they take turns attacking and defending a series of control points.
Check out the early screenshots below. We thought it was kind of neat to see all the gamer tags that the Red Dead development team uses.
