Once again it's time to round up your friends, form a posse, and hog tie Rockstar Games employees in Red Dead Redemption tomorrow, September 23rd, from 4 to 7 PM Eastern Time US! Get your Landon Ricketts, Nastas or Uncle character loaded up, study up on the lay of the land in the new multiplayer locations like Cochinay, El Presidio and Plainview, and be prepared for a full afternoon of action with the new FREE Red Dead Redemption Myths and Mavericks Bonus Pack. TRIPLE XP will also be active for both consoles during this time as well as throughout the entire weekend!

Rockstar will also be giving away 20 Rockstar prize packs of official tees and stickers, plus live streaming the event and hosting the Social Club chat as always at socialclub.rockstargames.com/multiplayer. In addition to the usual wild western riding and gunning with the RedDeadDev crew of Rockstars, a few friends of Rockstar's will be joining them from the Opie & Anthony radio show crew: Erock, Roland, Cokelogic, Travis, and Danny - playing online with everyone in all the Myths and Mavericks modes and surely behaving inappropriately on the headsets - should be a good time!

Here's the official Rockstar Gamertags to add:

ROCKSTAR GAMERTAGS
  • RedDeadDev3
  • RedDeadDev4
  • RedDeadDev5
  • RedDeadDev6

And you can also look for the O&A crew guests via their Xbox LIVE Gamertags: COK3LOGIC (Cokelogic), HelloExactly (Danny Ross aka Big Doodies), Tellemfred (Travis Tefft aka T-Storm), Erockradio (Erik aka Erock), and Estreetband99 (Roland).

HOW TO FIND ROCKSTAR
Start up multiplayer from the main menu. This will place you into a Free Roam lobby. Add one of the Gamertags above as a friend, and while you're waiting to receive an invite check out the chat and live stream on the multiplayer events page. Also feel free to play through a few rounds with other players.

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 Rockstar is currently playing. This can be found in the chat as the event rolls along.

Should be a ton of fun so see you there and join us at the Grand Theft Auto V forums!
