Recap & Screens: Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare Social Club Multiplayer Event on Xbox LIVE (December 16)
In our final Social Club Multiplayer Event of 2010, we ended the year with a bang by gathering Rockstars and players from around the world into Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare for a bloody holiday fiesta of Undead Overrun, Stronghold, Grand Prix Horse Racing and more.
Expect plenty more opportunities for online mayhem in 2011. Your first chance to match wits and bullets online with us in 2011 will be via a Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare session this coming Friday, January 7th from 4-7PM Eastern. Cheers again, to all of you that participated, watched the stream, or entered to win prizes over the last year.
In the December 16th event, we powered up four Xbox 360s and took to Free Roam, playing games in a variety of modes across the world of Red Dead...
FIGHTtoBeFREE got the first win of the afternoon as we started things off with Land Grab in Escalera. A particularly brave (yet foolhardy) moment came when RedDeadDev3 rushed the capture area, trying to overtake a posse consisting of DiFran4, FIGHTtoBeFree, Carolinafan89 and vforvendetta13. RedDeadDev3 opened fire on Carolinafan89 and FIGHTtoBeFree, taking them both down, but the effort wasn't enough. Strong showing for the posse of four. We tip our hat to you.
While we always enjoy the competitive challenge of Land Grab, it was time to head into some zombie killin' in Undead Overrun. Making it up to wave 18 in Undeadwood after hundreds of kills was a fine posse: RedDeadDev3, great dan2, a fps noob and FIGHTtoBeFree. During one of the earlier waves, all four players surrounded a Retcher and mercilessly shot the hell outta the thing, causing it to blow up in a green gaseous spew. That's above. Grats to great dan2 for making it the longest in Sudden Death, and to everyone for getting a grand total of more than $150,000...
We hopped over into some Stronghold (available in the Undead Nightmare disc and in the Liars and Cheats Pack DLC), ready to tear things up in Fort Mercer. Dutch's Gang (D) vs the Cattle Rustlers (C), and things got ugly quick at the first capture point: the Gorge. First kill honors goes to Samiboy91 (C) for shooting the head off gangstamic9 (D). RedDeadDev3 (D) rode to the scene on horseback and quickly disposed of Samiboy91, but PKU Eskained (C) avenged his teammate, dropping RedDeadDev3 onto the ground. Congrats to the Cattle Rustlers for capturing all five points in 7:42 with 34 lives lost. Dutch's Gang wasn't so lucky, only capturing three points.
Continuing things in the Liars and Cheats Pack, we saddled up for some horse racing in Grand Prix. In the screen above, GWARMAGGOTSLAVE, RedDeadDev3, Scoonie and FIGHTtoBeFREE round a tight corner during Coronas Paradise. In Grand Prix, you can pull out your weapon to gain an advantage, but it might cost you a place or two in the standings. Dare you pull out the shotgun? GWARMAGGOTSLAVE was able to survive to take first place honors...strong work sir. Check out our new Grand Prix tips posted last week to polish the fine art of horse racing with weapons...
Back to Undead Overrun, as we had grown famished for more dead zombies. We were ready to tear up the walking maniacals that long to eat our flesh so we entered Bury 'Em Deep, the most wide open map available in the game. SensoryCargo watched RedDeadDev3's back as the Rockstar eviscerated the dead without prejudice. After multiple waves and relentless hordes, Iron Maiden558 was solidified as the top contributor with the most kills, proving that the screenname was aptly chosen.
Heading back to Free Roam for the finale, 16 players all gathered in Blackwater for Land Grab...and JoshuaTN came out of it with the win in The Blackwater Alley. In the screen above, HUEVEETO fires away at an enemy after taking RedDeadDev3's life. Superb kill, and a fine outfit.
