Red Dead Redemption's Liars And Cheats Pack Is Two Packs In One

Because platform networks have issues with giving things away, Rockstar rolls its planned free Free Roam pack into its Liars and Cheats Pack, releasing one massive chunk of new content for Red Dead Redemption on September 21. What's inside?

Rockstar originally planned four downloadable content packs for Red Dead Redemption: Legends and Killers, which has already been released, Liars and Cheats, Free Roam and Undead Nightmare. Now Liars and Cheats and Free Roam have been condensed into one $US9.99 or 800 Microsoft point download, due to "the platform networks' restrictions on numbers of free packs" Rockstar can give away.

That means Free Roam's seven new gang hideouts, four new hunting grounds, and posse scoring and leaderboards will come at a price.

But that price also includes Liars and Cheats multiplayer horse races, multiplayer poker and Liar's Dice, Stronghold attack and defend multiplayer mode, and Explosive Rifle all come packed inside, along with 15 new multiplayer characters from the Red Dead Redemption storyline and new achievements and trophies.

At least they tried to give away something for free, right?

    I'll definently be picking this up now seeing the 2-in-1 deal.

    I don't want to sound like one of those whiny, ungrateful gamers that think they deserve everything, but I think Rockstar should take full blame for this mistake. Either they should have come to some kind of agreement on this 'restriction of free packs' a developer can give out (which sounds rather strange) or they should have checked on this before saying it would be free.

    I don't really mind myself, as I doubt I'll really get it, but even so I think any gamers that are annoyed at this are justified in it. Sure you get it 'free' with the Liars and Cheats pack but I'm sure there are people out there that wanted one and not the other.

    In a business sense restricting free content is a good idea. As a consumer it's is frustratingly ridiculous.

    “the platform networks’ restrictions on numbers of free packs”

    hmmm... That smells like Microsoft...

    Didn't Valve have a similiar problem with Microsoft and XBLA?
