Friendly Free Roam, Coming Very Soon to Red Dead Redemption Multiplayer

Posted on October 8 2010, 2:35pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

As mentioned in our previous Asked & Answered, the next title update will feature a new "Friendly" version of Multiplayer Free Roam where player-vs-player killing is disabled.

Here's a quick shot of how you'll be able to jump into any version of Free Roam you want (Normal, Hardcore and Friendly), from the Multiplayer Menu:

    Why isn't there a "hardcore friendly free roam." I don't want people to kill me but I HATE using auto aim...

      Thanks again for the Friendly Free Roam. As alot of people said, the few idiots trying to blow you up are tolerable. Can someone tell me, btw, how someone with full Legend status can still kill me in Friendly Free Roam? this is reallllly annoying...
      PS Thanks Rockstar for THE game on the Xbox 360 :-)))

        Friendly mode needs to be tweeked so that there can not be killing of ones mount. Its freakin ---ed to have a "friendly mode",If the idiots are allowed to keep killing your mount. Plus they want to kill you with explosives. Just trying to get some XP without the Morons getting in the way. The Xp for the avatar stuff can not be made in private mode.

                I have a question for you R*. When will everyone in the US get the update for the friendly fire free roam? For the past two days my online buddies in Europe have had the update and it makes it very hard to play with them since i do not have the update and have not been giving the option for the update..I get an message saying error unable to play due to not having the update or something like that. I cant remember what the message said exactly but it basically said you cant play with your buddies because you dont have the update.. any idea when the update will come for everyone?

                  R* vous devriez imposer le friendly-fire à tous les modes d'exploration et implanter des modérateurs (visibles ou invisibles). En empêchant les abrutis de pourrir le jeu des autres(certains veulent coopérer et xp tranquillement et respectueusement. Pardon de parler de respect, c'est grossier il est vrai vu que le multi est rempli d'abrutis.), vous remettriez un peu de justice dans le multiplayer.. ;)

                      Oh oui on a de vrais gros durs ici. De vrais caïds derrière leur console, vraies p'tite fiotte dans la vie réelle. Ca fait plaisir de voir ces même petite fiottes "glousser" comme des dindes sur le fait que certains ne sont pas là que pour faire du "pan-pan in your fesses".... Ca glousse ! C'est mignon ! ^^

                        @R* Could you please at least add a Tom Sawyer type raft that fits 2-3 people, How about some fly-fishing ?
                        :P Just a suggestion................jk being sarcastic

                          he what about a new free roam with just 2 posses and when you come in you must choose one of the 2 posses. that would be great for big gang fights in places as el presidio or cochinay, the posse-leaders can also work together and then you can defend a stronghold against law officers or attack gang hideouts with 16 man!
                          (just a proposal)

                            Il y a vraiment des dégénérés ici. Des mecs qui font leur petite crise parce que "ô les mauviettes qui veulent pas qu'on leur tire dessus, ils préfèrent peut être cueillir des fleurs ? ^^ "

                            Crétins stupides. Le free-roam n'est pas un mode deathmatch, il y a un respect a avoir envers les joueurs qui s'approchent de nous sans être armés. Tester le fusil explosif sur un joueur pacifique est pitoyable. C'est immature. Certains vous prennent dans leur équipe pour mieux vous buter dés le respawn. Quand aux sois-disant terroristes "islamiques"(regardez vous en face les gars, pas besoin d'être "bronzé" pour être terroriste, l'occident est champion du monde niveau terrorisme) qui se font exploser sur le radeau dans le mode co-op, c'est tout simplement scandaleux et mériterais un bannissement de plusieurs semaines voir définitif.

                            Sur un autre forum je lis le désarroi de certains qui sont contre le double xp. Trop de level max selon eux. Finalement on retrouve dans un simple jeu vidéo le même délire morbide que dans le réel. A savoir qu'un monde plus juste et moins inégalitaire n'est pas souhaité. Chacun rêve de gloire et de pouvoir. Et pour ca, il faut qu'il y ait des faibles. Il faut qu'on laisse la sélection naturelle faire son carnage, au lieu de tous s'entraider. Tant pis. Si je croise des chacals, qu'ils prennent garde. Même sur un simple jeu vidéo. J'ai la rancune tenace.

                              i would like it if they would make it so you cant be in a posse for the grand prix....its ---ed vs people in a posse who wont shoot each other and will help each other win and it would be so awesome if they added a gang shootout mode where there are no posses allowed gets annoying fighting a full team all in one posse vs a team of random people who dont talk make the people who want to play with a posse have to use the old version but that wont happen im sure...

                                    on second thought, go ahead and add the friendly freeroam. that way we can weed out all of the wimps from the real world and get them all in one place. i get tired of their whiney crap anyway. they wouldn't last a second with the real g's. send their candy asses to candy land.

                                      yeah, they will make a friendly free-roam where it's impossible to kill other players, but the co-op missions are usually filled with islamic terrorists that like to blow up everybody on the river mission when you are almost to the final destination, thus wasting 7 or 8 minutes of our lives and giving us nothing for points. not that i am complaining or wanting that changed, but i don't think people should have the safety of a friendly free-roam. half the fun of the game is the randomness at which people attack or the randomness of which you can attack others. half the fun is killing them or getting killed if you like it or not. there is always the option of starting a new free roam and getting away if you get sick of one scene. but whatever. you guys have this in the works. i just hope it doesn't kill the spirit of the game. people don't need the option of a safe world where bad s**t doesn't happen. worlds like that do not exist. it's a give and take world where sometimes you take it and sometimes you give it out. i had to level my way to the top while putting up with random a-holes, and if i had it to do over again, i wouldn't do it any other way. now i'm the random a-hole screwing with others the same way, and i feel that i've earned that right through putting up with bulls**t. haha.

                                        Dear Rock* us gamers have been left bored for too long and we are famished. Best make the how it should be Rock*, best end this tyranny and make the game how it should be. You don't want us to catch that whip.

                                          And as William Wallace roars, FRE-E-E-D-O-O-O-O-OM!!!!! from lack of purpose from lack of a well thought out game.
