Win Custom Red Dead Controllers in the Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare PSN Official Social Club Multiplayer Event (October 14, 4-7PM)

Posted on October 14 2011, 4:00pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The event has ended. Thanks to all that joined us - whether playing, chatting, watching or just stopping by to enter the sweepstakes...

Time to kick off the new Social Club multiplayer events calendar with an afternoon of Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare in honor of this week's release of Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition (note that you do not have to have the GOTY Edition in order to play - anyone with Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare, and/or any of the DLC can jump in and join us when we're playing applicable modes). Join us Friday October 14th from 4-7PM Eastern on PSN, and enjoy Triple XP all weekend for both consoles.

21 prizes will be given away Friday, including the Grand Prize: one pair of individually-numbered, hand-painted limited edition PlayStation 3 controllers. If you don't win the top prize, there are still 20 Rockstar prize packs up for grabs... each containing a Rockstar t-shirt and stickers.

To enter, head over to the multiplayer events page beginning at 3PM Eastern Friday, and fill in your info under the 'Sweepstakes Entry' tab near the bottom of the page. Also look for the live video stream and chat on the same page, where throngs of Social Club members from around the world gather to recklessly talk trash and confer on all things Rockstar...

Below are our PSN IDs that we Rockstars will be using during the event. You can also add the PSN ID of this week's special invited guest, our friend Lucas Thomé from São Paulo - of the celebrated Brazilian humor blog O Verso do Inverso - and a dedicated Red Dead PSN player in his own right. His PSN ID is: lucastbacon.

HOW TO FIND US
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:

  1. From the main menu, press 'Start' and then enter 'Online Multiplayer' by pressing the 'Square' button, and choose 'Normal'.
  2. Once in a Free Roam lobby, press the 'Select' button to open the in-game multiplayer menu.
  3. Press the 'R1' button and then the 'Triangle' button to 'Show Friends'. Invite at least one friend into your posse using the 'X' button.
  4. 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'.
  5. 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.

As stated, pay close attention to the chat to know what game mode we're currently playing.

And again, be sure to check out the calendar of multiplayer events that takes us through the end of 2011.
Next week on October 21st, we'll have an evening with Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition on PSN from 5-8PM Eastern - in celebration of the 10th Anniversary Weekend of the release of Grand Theft Auto III. Stay tuned for some special giveaways with that one too.

    RRS187 is a german administrator on the Reddeadus website. This punk bans anyone with different views then he has or if they don't get along with his fellow cheaters corvettezr1-13 and cuban_gang_alex. The Reddeadus website has become a safe haven for the biggest cheaters on Red Dead Redemption. Several people have complained about RRS187 but the sites upper level administrators have failed to take action against him. That is typical based on the fact that the website caters to hackers, moders and cheaters. If you are a legitimate gamer this is not the site you should be a part of. RRS187 is also a cheater on Red Dead Redemption for the Platstation 3. He uses a modded PS3 console with an aimbot and a modified controller in gang matches. This --- needs to get a life and stop abusing what little power he has.

          its true red dead redemption multiplayer is not what it used to be when it first came out, some of the ways i get shot it just don't seem genuine gamplay and if theres people out there that are clever enough to adapt or experiment with a games console then they should be earning thousands by working for the government instead of being fat nerdy kids sitting in there bedrooms thinking they can control the world

          and why is it when i decide to have a couple of hours of RDR on the xbox i keep getting message saying give me your user name and password and i'm thinking you T*** as if i'm gonna do that and some kids fall for it and give them it and they wonder why they get hacked what idiots

            Reddead.us seems to be the central location for cheaters on Red Dead Redemption. I visit the site every once in a while to see if anything has changed. But no, it's still the same base of 30 or so cheaters that are talking trash like always. They think they are the Gods Of Red Dead. How most of those punks have avoided getting banned by Rockstar and Sony is beyond me. Most of them use modified PS3 consoles and modified controllers. It's really very obvious. I don't know what can be done by game developers to clean multiplayer games up. Maybe a stronger Ban Hammer, starting with Reddead.us.

                    Dougherty, Your right buddy its a poor show when you dont get any feedback whatsoever?
                    I waited for a response as i didnt want to carry on back at lvl 30 because my social club status would link back up to the lower level once i'd saved the game, thats why i waited for R* to actually see i was a lvl 46 before i played the game again!

                    Complete Bull^%t very annoyed by it!

                    Wheres the customer Care?

                      I'm glad to see that i'm not the only one that seems to be being swept under the rug with R*'s support.

                      Sent a message about their maijor lag issues because thats where I was pointed to from the people on here. But i haven't gotten any response back in anyway at all, I sent a 2nd message askin if i'm bein ignored still nothin. Owell guess things are goin down hill for some people.

                        R* i posted a query requesting help from R* support on Monday and i still havent heard anything back?
                        Incredibly poor support from you i have to say!

                        It was a question about Rank Level as i was legend 3 lvl 46 after last weekends triple xp & when i logged in social club it confirmed my status, however when i went back on to multiplayer it brought me back down to lvl 30 legend 3 (16 levels lower) i did check the game save data & backed it up on a usb!
                        A simple answer back would have been nice, but why have a Support section when there clearly is no support!?
                        i have since sent 3 posts on the same section but still no reply?
                        So very frustrating

                                    instead of just blocking the marston house at beechers hope just officially unlock it, it would be much simplier then patching or fixing the game and unlock the macfarlane house too

                                    and if theres someone shooting players from 3000 yards then really that person is invisable and there standing right next to you, which i have discovered that nothing is ever really patched/fixed because players (yes ok myself included but i just like running around on the redemption mountain and shouting to everyone in the session look where i am) and if you keep jumping through the train tunnel wall you do eventually get on top of it and it may take about 10 attempts but it obvious people are putting the time and effort into it
