Time to saddle up and drive other fans out of town in the Red Dead Redemption Multiplayer Event happening this Friday, March 23rd, from 4 to 7 PM Eastern Time US on the Xbox 360. As usual there are controllers and prize packs being given away and on top of that there's TRIPLE XP ALL WEEKEND! More details below...


Starting with the event and lasting all weekend, you'll be able to bag yourself some multiplayer Triple XP in all forms of Red Dead Redemption on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

During the afternoon you can enter the random drawing to win two custom Red Dead Xbox 360 controllers, plus 20 runners-up will win prize packs. Each prize pack includes a Rockstar t-shirt, Red Dead playing cards and a bunch of stickers. Just enter your details under 'Sweepstakes Entry' on the multiplayer events page during the afternoon for your chance to win!

As always, there will also be a live video stream of the event and active chat on the same page so you can tune in and talk to Rockstar & other fans, even if you're not playing.

Start up multiplayer from the main menu. This will place you into Free Roam. 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 while you're on.

Free Roam is the game lobby in Red Dead multiplayer. You can ride around the entire map with friends, take down Gang Hideouts and stake your claim at Land Grab points. Rockstar will be forming posses and then heading into several game modes during the evening.

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.

See you in the event on Friday and join us at the Grand Theft Auto V forums!
