Rockstar has shed some more light on the forthcoming Liars and Cheats DLC multiplayer Stronghold Mode.

Up to 16 players divide into two teams with a set shared number of lives and then have to take control of each other's strongholds. A round ends when all of a team's bases are captured, a team runs out of lives or the time limit runs down.

Safes dotted around the maps hide the new 'explosive rifle' capable of causing devastating damage, but there's a catch: hacking the safes takes time, leaving you vulnerable to attack.

The mode is playable on four maps: Blackwater, Escalera, Fort Mercer and Thieves Landing.

The DLC pack is out on 21st September and will set you back £7.99 on PSN or 800 Microsoft Points (£6.80 / €9.60) on XBLA. It also includes multiplayer horse races, poker and Liar's Dice, as well as new gang hideouts and hunting grounds.

And there's more to come. The Undead Nightmare pack - a new single player adventure - is due for release just in time for Halloween.
