Last chance for a while to round up your friends and take back the world of Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar Games and other fans! It all happens tomorrow, April 20th, from 4 to 7 PM Eastern Time US on the PlayStation 3. Of course there will be TRIPLE XP ALL WEEKEND and prizes to hand out to lucky winners! More details below...


Next up after this event ends: a month with Max Payne 3. Beginning Tuesday May 15th, Rockstar will be playing every single day into June, including several multiplayer events with live video, chat and big prizes. Have a look at the official Spring calendar for full details.

For tomorrow, head over to the Social Club multiplayer events page where they'll have a video stream and live chat, plus they're giving away two custom hand-painted Red Dead Redemption controllers. Additionally, 20 runners-up will win Rockstar prize packs, each containing a Rockstar shirt, Red Dead playing cards and stickers.

And for those of you playing, not to worry if you don't own the Game of the Year Edition. Any version of Red Dead or Undead Nightmare is compatible with Game of the Year Edition multiplayer.

Start multiplayer from the main menu, choosing 'Normal' from the list of difficulties. This will place you into a Free Roam lobby. It's best to invite at least one friend and form a posse, but this is not required. Then enter the game mode being discussed by "SocialClub" 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. Rockstar will be forming posses and then heading into several game modes during the event.

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 'Online Multiplayer' by pressing the 'Square' button, and choose 'Normal'.
  2. Once in a Free Roam lobby, press the 'Select' button to open the in-game multiplayer menu.
  3. Press the 'R1' button and then the 'Triangle' button to 'Show Friends'. Invite at least one friend into your posse using the 'X' button.
  4. Once your friends are in the game, press the 'Triangle' button again to return to the 'Players' menu and select them with the 'X' 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. They'll announce modes in the chat.

Sounds fun and be on the lookout for random 3XP every week or two! Join us at the Grand Theft Auto V forums!
