Rockstar Games has further detailed the soon-to-be-released Liars and Cheats downloadable pack for Red Dead Redemption which gives an insight on multiplayer Horse Races. Additionally, the DLC’s Trophies have been unveiled.
With Multiplayer Horse Racing, the Liars and Cheats Pack brings one of the most “fan-requested DLC updates to the world of Red Dead Redemption Multiplayer.” Races support up to 8 players, and each multiplayer contest is a tournament that consists of anywhere from 3 to 5 races, where players earn points based on their position of finish.
Additionally, the new Multiplayer Horse Racing mode brings something else to the track: mounted combat. “After a designated brief period of calm at the start of each race, players can draw their guns and take aim at opponents.” In each race, players are given a fixed amount of guns and ammunition and there is no auto-targeting, but players can acquire more by running over weapons that have been dropped by opponents that have been killed. If killed during a race you simply re-spawn with a small time penalty. Check out the screenshots for the multiplayer Horce Racing feature and full trophy list.
