During the event, enter to win a José González autographed Red Dead soundtrack CD or vinyl on the multiplayer events page.

The soundtracks have been autographed by José González of Red Dead's 'Far Away', as heard performed live via rooftop, as the Song of the Year at the Spike VGAs show, and in the official music video. To enter the contest, go to the multiplayer events page during the event and enter your details under 'Sweepstakes Entry' near the bottom of the page.

HOW TO FIND ROCKSTAR
Start up multiplayer from the main menu. This will place you into a Free Roam lobby. Invite at least one other person and form a posse. Then enter the game modes as we announce them in the chat.

HOW DOES FREE ROAM WORK?
Free Roam is the hub of your online experience. Supporting up to 16 players, Free Roam allows you to explore with your friends and enemies, take out the gangs of outlaws or launch into more structured gameplay using the markers placed around the world. Rockstar will be forming posses and then heading into several game modes across all of the original multiplayer and the downloadable content during the evening.

To form a posse, press the 'Back' button and use the menu. This menu gives you several gameplay options and access to the list of players in your session.

FORMING A POSSE
To start the game, invite your friends, form a posse and find Rockstar, follow these steps:
  1. From the main menu, press 'Start' and then enter 'Xbox Live Multiplayer' by pressing the 'X' (blue) button.
  2. Once in a Free Roam lobby, press the 'Back' button to open the in-game multiplayer menu.
  3. Press the 'RB' button and then the 'Y' (yellow) button to 'Invite Friends'. Invite at least one friend into your posse using the 'A' (green) button.
  4. Once your friends are in the game, press the 'Y' (yellow) button again to return to the 'Players' menu and select them with the 'A' (green) button to 'Propose New Posse' or 'Send Posse Invite'.
  5. Once you and your friends are ready to go, start up the game mode they're currently playing. This can be found in the chat as the event rolls along.

Remember it's best to be in a posse with at least one other person to play with Rockstar. And as stated, pay close attention to the chat to know what game mode they're currently playing.
