Multiplayer horse racing is one of the new modes of play in Red Dead Redemption's Liars and Cheats downloadable content extension, due next week. Four screens give us some clues as to what it's all about. Hint: It's got guns.
The mode supports up to eight players, competing in cup-style tournaments of between 3 and 5 races. In the races, riders go off and there's a brief quiet period of no gunplay. Once that lapses, everyone can draw and fire.
There's no auto-targeting in this mode, and each rider gets a fixed amount of guns and ammo. There are weapon and ammo pickups along the track to add to your arsenal. Players that are killed respawn and incur a time penalty.
Liars and Cheats will be available for purchase on Tuesday.
