Red Dead Redemption Rockstar XP Challenge Now Available - Pitch in to Unlock Avatar Rewards

Posted on January 18 2011, 11:15am | Author: R* Z | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Red Dead Redemption Rockstar XP Challenge has officially begun, ladies and gentlemen. Grizzled veterans and greenhorns alike in Red Dead Redemption multiplayer on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network will be on equal footing as the entire online population works starting today to unlock special avatar rewards for their respective platforms. In lieu of the originally announced "Skin It to Win It" and "I Shot the Sheriff" Challenges to unlock these avatars, the test will now be for players on each console to harness their collective XP earning skills online and get that thermometer up from zero to 100%. 

Here's how to do your part.  Boot up your platform of choice and jump into any Red Dead Redemption multiplayer session.  From Free Roam to Grab the Bag - whatever your pleasure.  Enjoy your multiplayer game as you normally would and when your session ends, all of the XP that you accumulate will be automatically added to your platform's XP grand total.

You can track the progress of both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 earnings via the live XP thermometer at the Red Dead Redemption Social Club Community page, the Social Club Homepage, or even at the sidebar here at the Rockstar Newswire.  When a platform reaches 100%, we will unlock the avatar awards for that platform community. 

The unlockable avatars will grace your Xbox LIVE and/or PlayStation Home characters with the spiffy Gentlemen's Attire just like the unlockable one Marston himself rocks in the game. And when the occasion calls for something less dressy, there will also be the crimson Posse t-shirt.  Each available for both male and female avatars.  Check out some preview shots of all the unlockable avatar outfits below.

Best of luck to you all - and see you online.

      I got the awards but can´t update them in the new dashboard.
      What should I do to update/wear my new Gentlemen's Attire? (I´m using XBOX LIVE Brasil)

      Thanks Rockstar.

          Dear Rockstar, PLEASE make a patch that will UNLOCK the bank DOORS in Chuparosa and Blackwater. If I want to go on a bank robbing spree I only have 1 safe at MacFarlane's and 2 in Armadillo, not much of a spree!! I know there is 1 safe in Blackwater Bank, but for the biggest bank in the game to only have 1 accessible safe is pretty poor, and the only bank in Mexico, I CANT ROB!!! WTF!!!! Can you PLEASE also UNLOCK the DOORS to the cop shop in Blackwater, if I have the Bureau, US Marshall or US army uniforms then I should have ACCESS to this location. If i want to attack the G-men I should have that option, especially if I'm Jack!! In fact, why not just UNLOCK ALL THE DOORS after the credits (MacFarlane's Ranch), I don’t know why you have RESRICTED ACCESS to CONTENT we have paid for! Or, if a door is locked, surely a shotgun, dynamite or explosive rifle is going to be the key that unlocks it??
          Sorry for moaning, but it’s almost a year since the release and still the doors stay locked!
          On another note, how about making a Dutch's gang outfit and make Cochinay into their active hideout, seems a shame to let Cochinay rot after Dutch’s departure, eh??
          Red Dead is not finished by a long shot, we NEED MORE single player content, give Jack a story, like hunt down Agent Archer with some well known criminals of the period. Apart from this, THANK YOU for the making the best game to date, I love it.

                  OK, got it! Needed to exit to Dashboard then restart RDR SP, then it popped up automatically. Initially, I was in Multiplayer, then exited to Single player, then saved, but that doesn't work. Hope this helps. Needs to be a new RDR SP load. Thanks!

                          Yeh I just realised. I was looking at the top of this screen and it says "AVAILABLE NOW", I thought they meant the items.....not the challenge. 2.79% to go now!!
