Recap & Screens: Red Dead Redemption Social Club Multiplayer Event on PSN (October 8th)
(The Rebeldes crack the safe in Blackwater during Stronghold during our multiplayer event on PlayStation Network...)
Starting off the brand new calendar of multiplayer events for October - December in the Rockstar Games Social Club Multiplayer Events Series was an afternoon of Red Dead Redemption on PlayStation Network on October 8th – where we played plenty of Liars and Cheats Pack Horse Racing, Poker, as well as other modes and features from Legends and Killers, Outlaws to the End Co-Op and the original game as well. Thanks to all who were up in the chat, watching RedDeadDev3 do his thing on the live video stream or playing with us in-game.
The Liars and Cheats Pack was at the forefront as we tackled all of the new modes of online play: Stronghold, Multiplayer Poker, Liar's Dice, horse racing and the new Gang Hideouts and Hunting Grounds. Read on for a full recap with screens of some of the most memorable moments.
We began the event with four adrenaline-fueled races with eight players in the Carreras Perdido Cup in the Horse Race mode Grand Prix. Boris2010ful started the first race, “Carrera Del Diablo”, by gunning down our own RedDeadDev3 with a Pump-action Shotgun. Vergonio22 finished first with a time of 1:54.34. In L. Johnsons Run, vergonio22 finished first again, clocking in at 1:34.29. In Ridge Racin', boris2010ful took first with 2:03.96. And lastly in Coronas Paradise, boris2010ful crossed the finish line at the 1:41.79 mark. After calculating times, boris2010ful claimed top honors. Grats to you sir.
We next joined a different crop of players in the attack and defend mode Stronghold in Blackwater. The first kill came when KSA-SuL6aN-KSA executed Cattle Rustler frewstorm with his Cattleman Revolver. RedDeadDev3 and the Rebeldes successfully defended Main Street and kept the opposition from capturing even the first area. Switching sides, the Rebeldes attacked with absolute ferocity, claiming Main Street in 35 seconds, The Gunsmith Safe in 21, The Train Station Safe in 49 and Town Hall in 1:50. The Rebeldes certainly deserve a shout: HAYLOCK-504_, KSA-SuL6aN-KSA, Solid_Creed_Hs, RedDeadDev3, leefer316, Garlandalius, skietto and bin-dleel-502.
There's nothing like a good, strategic sit-down game of cards and dice after some heavy battles and races, so we settled into Escalera's cozy gambling hall for a game of Liar's Dice. Participating players included ZeGaMarrA, KyodaShiro, vince_123, swhyte21, JoseKelsey and RedDeadDev3. ZeGaMarrA went first, bidding that there were five 2's. That's a pretty safe bet when there's 30 dice on the table. However, KyodaShiro believed it to be perfectly spot-on, finding out seconds later that there were seven 2's. One die down for KyodaShiro, and one step closer to losing the game.
After RedDeadDev3 and a few of the other players lost all their dice, we switched over to a $100 game of Multiplayer Poker in Beecher's Hope. In the first hand, razaobrera99, zoDiaK77 and IWI Hooligan all showed two pair of 10s and 9s. IWI Hooligan collected 140 chips since he was holding an Ace. At the end of the second hand and with 2400 chips in the pot, wikime123 showed a pair of Kings, razaobrera99 showed two pair of 7s and 6s and RedDeadDev3 showed a pair of 7s. Nice job to razaobrera99 for winning that hand and eventually collecting all winnings for the entire round.
Getting back into another round of Horse Races in the Rathskeller Series, Boy0664 put the first bullet into the back of babatiki. Man down. Boy0664 also claimed the first race with a 1st place time of 2:10.54 in Rathskeller Run. In Boulder Dash, RedDeadDev3 came in first with a time of 1:47.38. The winner in Saint's Sprint was Elemental Bliss in 1:57.77. And the overall winner was...none of the 1st place race winners? That's right. MrBuzzLightBeer came in 2nd place in all three races, claiming enough points to earn the top prize. The tortoise and the hare.
Finishing in Free Roam were RoyalLegend_King, RoyalLegend_Rico, Rebel Raven, zorni1991, stankb0t, alphapunjab, IWIHooligan, wikime123, FIGHTMAN94, barfon, CriticallyOctane, badkarma1969, RedDeadDev3 and kylebaptie. Everyone made their way up to Tall Trees for some bear hunting and Tomahawk fights. Certainly a grand way to end the event...
And now for screens of some great moments during the afternoon:
(Look at this motley crew. RedDeadDev3 goes all in during a game of Multiplayer Poker under the gazebo in Beecher's Hope.)
(Razeobrera99, the event's Poker game winner, tumbles off his horse after taking a few knife swipes from LenaRoseNoire.)
(Under the yellow lights in this building in Thieves' Landing, DREDD-1 does his best to protect the Final
Dock from the assault of the rolling leffer316 and the bullets coming from shotenkibu and RedDeadDev3.)
(Fire spooks RoyalLegend_King's horse, causing him to fall off, and RedDeadDev3 is an instant from taking a Tomahawk to the back.)
