A full night of Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare Triple XP begins August 26th with our latest Social Club multiplayer event happening on PSN. We'll be online posse'ing up, playing from 4-7PM Eastern, hosting a video stream, chat and full sweepstakes on the multiplayer events page. Also joining us to play during the event will be one of our friends on Twitter, Onision of YouTube fame - should be a fun time.
The giveaway sweeps gives you a one of 20 shots at winning a Rockstar prize pack that includes a t-shirt and stickers. Enter on the multiplayer events page under 'Sweepstakes Entry'.
Oh and Triple XP will be active until Saturday morning on PSN and Xbox LIVE in all multiplayer modes, including Free Roam, so go ahead and plan for some late night gunslingin'.
OFFICIAL ROCKSTAR PSN IDs
Start multiplayer from the main menu, choosing 'Normal' from the list of difficulties. This will place you into a Free Roam lobby. It's best to invite at least one friend and form a posse, but this is not required. Then enter the game mode being discussed by "SocialClub" in the chat.
HOW DOES FREE ROAM WORK?
Free Roam is the hub of your online experience. Supporting up to 16 players, Free Roam allows you to explore with your friends and enemies, take out the gangs of outlaws or launch into more structured gameplay using the markers placed around the world. We'll be forming posses and then heading into several game modes during the event.
FORMING A POSSE
To start the game, invite your friends, form a posse and find Rockstar, follow these steps:
- From the main menu, press 'Start' and then enter 'Online Multiplayer' by pressing the 'Square' button, and choose 'Normal'.
- Once in a Free Roam lobby, press the 'Select' button to open the in-game multiplayer menu.
- Press the 'R1' button and then the 'Triangle' button to 'Show Friends'. Invite at least one friend into your posse using the 'X' button.
- Once your friends are in the game, press the 'Triangle' button again to return to the 'Players' menu and select them with the 'X' button to 'Propose New Posse' or 'Send Posse Invite'.
- Once you and your friends are ready to go, start up the game mode we're currently playing. We'll announce modes in the chat.
Future events include a Grand Theft Auto IV & Episodes from Liberty City PC event on September 9th and a Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare Xbox LIVE event on September 23rd. See the events calendar for more details.
If you weren't already aware, we're on Twitter and Facebook, and we like to jump online and play our games with you guys at a moment's notice, including some surprise Triple XP. Those two pages are the only places we alert the community about these impromptu playsessions, so we suggest you keep a close eye on them...
