Recap & Screens: Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare Social Club Multiplayer Event on Xbox LIVE (January 7)
Cheers to Social Club members and Red Dead multiplayers new and auld who joined us for the new year's first official session in The Social Club Multiplayer Event Series held last Friday January 7th - with an afternoon of Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare on Xbox LIVE. There were 20 Undead Nightmare prize packs up for grabs for some lucky sweepstakes winners, as Social Club members from around the world gathered to play with Rockstar, watch the stream and chat with each other.
Below we've got a recap of several of the rounds of play during the event, as well as screens from some of the most memorable moments. We begin with a fan favorite, the zombie-infested Undead Overrun...
The location: Blackwater's 'Dead Man Walking'. The players: fondo422, ALEX AMSTERDAM, RedDeadDev3 and T0nyG0uNd. The highest wave: 18. In the first game of the day, the posse of four disposed of the first several waves with ease. 16 waves later, things were not so easy. After the timer ran out, RedDeadDev3 was the last man standing before being taken by the hordes, and the final total came to $166,793. ALEX AMSTERDAM racked up 294 kills, RedDeadDev3 had 129, T0nyG0uNd had 126 and fondo422 was able to get 40.
Fort Mercer was the next stop as 16 players were divided into Dutch's Gang and Redemption for a game of Stronghold, part of the Liars and Cheats Pack DLC and the Undead Nightmare disc. In the end, MarvelX16 lead Dutch's Gang with 3 captures and 23 kills. His posse ended with 17 lives lost and a time of :49 on The Gorge, :36 on The Ridge, :43 on The Cannon Emplacement, 1:57 on The Courtyard, 1:22 on The Gallows and a total time of 5:29. Redemption lost 83 lives and, well, didn't perform very well. Defense wins... Stronghold. Grats to MarvelX16, B0Bmob650, CaptainRedCoat, A Gimpy Corgi, MrPrototype xZ, XxMytepowaxX, MANTIS SPB and XDeadTeddyBearX, all in Dutch's Gang.
Keeping things in the Liars and Cheats Pack vibe, RedDeadDev3, AoC x Death x, Danetrooper, KD KNIGHT 18, apoapo662 and AlexTheAvenger gathered in Thieves' Landing for a few minutes of Liar's Dice. It came with a price though - $100 to buy a seat for the game. Danetrooper called apoapo662's bluff of seven 4's, and the first lost die of the match was moved to the center of the table. However, apoapo662 stayed the course and was able to be in the final two. But our own RedDeadDev3 showed his skills and took home $500. Nice.
Fiending for a 'killin' zombies' fix, we headed back into Undead Overrun with RedDeadDev3, Bukkes, KDawg50 and pairsprowlin666, this time in the Odd Fellow's Rest area 'Bury 'Em Deep'. Above, RedDeadDev3 is opening a coffin while KDawg50 is fending off zombies, unaware of the bolter behind him. How far did they make it?...all the way up to wave 21. Congrats to all four for the valiant effort, and next time... the goal is wave 22.
The sun began to set on our event as we started up Grand Prix Horse Racing with eight players all lined up for five races in the Rathskeller Series. In the first race, FR3SH B1GZ was able to waste WEBHOLIO early, allowing him to leap ahead a few places. At the end of the first race, Rathskeller Run, FR3SH K0B3 claimed first with a time of 2:07.87. In second was Holiday9357 and in third was cigarnut81. Props to you all.
