Update: The event and sweepstakes have ended. Thanks to everyone that joined us.
Enter for the chance to win two limited edition Red Dead Xbox 360 controllers in the Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition Social Club multiplayer event on Xbox LIVE on Thursday November 3rd from 4-7PM Eastern, the latest on the Social Club multiplayer events calendar.
Triple XP will be live during the event, all night long and extended for the entire weekend...
The pair of individually-numbered, hand-painted limited-edition Xbox 360 controllers are the Grand Prize, and entering also puts you down for one of 20 chances to win a t-shirt and stickers.
To make sure you're entered, head to the multiplayer events page beginning at 3PM Eastern Thursday, and fill in your info under the 'Sweepstakes Entry' tab. We'll also have a live video stream and chat running on the same page.
Note that you won't need the Game of the Year Edition to play with us in the event. Every version of Red Dead Redemption is compatible with Game of the Year Edition, including the Undead Nightmare disc.
The way to get in a game with a Rockstar during the event is to send just one of the Gamertags below a friend request.

HOW TO FIND US IN THE EVENT
Start up multiplayer from the main menu. This will place you into a Free Roam lobby. Add one of the Gamertags above as a friend, and while you're waiting to receive an invite check out the chat and live stream on the multiplayer events page. Also feel free to play through a few rounds with other players.
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 launch into more structured gameplay using the markers placed around the world. We'll be forming posses and then heading into several game modes across all of the original multiplayer and the downloadable content during the evening.
To form a posse, press the 'Back' button and use the menu. This menu gives you several gameplay options and access to the list of players in your session.
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 'Xbox LIVE Multiplayer' by pressing the 'X' (blue) button.
2. Once in a Free Roam lobby, press the 'Back' button to open the in-game multiplayer menu.
3. Press the 'RB' button and then the 'Y' (yellow) button to 'Invite Friends'. Invite at least one friend into your posse using the 'A' (green) button.
4. Once your friends are in the game, press the 'Y' (yellow) button again to return to the 'Players' menu and select them with the 'A' (green) 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. This can be found in the chat as the event rolls along.
As stated, pay close attention to the chat to know what game mode we're currently playing.
Next up on the calendar of multiplayer events we've got Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare on PSN happening November 18th from 4-7PM Eastern. Might have another set of controllers to give away in that one too, so stay tuned...
