The next batch of downloadable content for Red Dead Redemption, "Liars and Cheats," is out September 21. Here's a bit of a surprise -- the pack will also contain all of the content that was previously announced as the free-of-charge "Free Roam" pack. Rockstar says this is "due to the platform networks' restrictions on numbers of free packs we can give away."

This means you'll be getting even more content at once if you pick up "Liars and Cheats" next month, including online multiplayer poker and dice games, multiplayer horse races, seven new gang hideouts, and four new hunting grounds. But there's more included in the pack -- including an explosive rifle! -- which you can read about after the break.

The "Liars and Cheats" pack will cost $9.99 on PlayStation Network and 800 MS Points on Xbox Live. Both will come with new trophies and achievements, respectively. Thinking about picking it up, or have you had your fill of Rockstar's Wild West?

Multiplayer Poker and Liars' Dice Games
