Just as they did for PlayStation 3 fans in the recent Red Dead PSN event, Rockstar is giving away two individually numbered, hand-painted limited edition Red Dead Redemption controllers during tomorrow's August 4th Xbox LIVE multiplayer event from 5 to 8 PM Eastern Time US!


To enter just visit the Social Club multiplayer events page during the event between 5-8PM Eastern and enter your information in the Sweepstakes Entry area. And be sure to check out the live video stream of all the Red Dead action and make your presence known in the live chat while you're there.


When entering, you'll also be placed in the running to win one of 20 Rockstar prize packs, each consisting of a Rockstar t-shirt and some stickers.

Triple XP will be live for both PSN and Xbox LIVE during the event, and will go all night long until Friday morning. Rockstar will be playing on Xbox LIVE in many of the multiplayer modes including DLC, so be sure you're ready with Outlaws to the End, the Legends and Killers Pack, the Liars and Cheats Pack and Undead Nightmare. They'll have four Rockstar players rotating through the modes, including one dedicated to original Red Dead Redemption multiplayer.

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.

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. They'll 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.

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.
