Update: The event has ended. Thanks to everyone that joined us, whether you were playing, watching the live stream, chatting or just dropping by to enter the sweepstakes.
How about a little Undead Nightmare for Friday the 13th?
Get Triple XP all weekend in Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition and enter for your chance to win two custom PlayStation 3 controllers in the Social Club multiplayer event on PSN.
It all begins Friday January 13th with the multiplayer event from 4-7PM Eastern when we'll be posse'ing up in-game, broadcasting live with a video stream and chatting on the multiplayer events page. Any version of Red Dead or Undead Nightmare is compatible with Game of the Year Edition multiplayer - so even if you don't have the Game of the Year Edition release, you can join us to play in any of the applicable modes on PSN. Triple XP will be active for both PSN and Xbox LIVE all weekend.
If you want to know where, how and when to enter the sweepstakes, it's simple. During the event on January 13th, head to the multiplayer events page between 3:00 and 8:00 Eastern US time. Under 'Sweepstakes Entry' at the bottom of that page, you can enter your details for a chance to win the two specially customized Red Dead Redemption PlayStation 3 controllers you see above. Once you enter, you'll also have the chance to win one of 20 runner-up Rockstar prize packs that includes an official t-shirt, deck of Red Dead playing cards and assorted stickers.
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.
If you want more chances to play with Rockstar, and lots more Triple XP for Red Dead, follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages. We usually hop on once or twice a week and play our games, so grab your controller or keyboard and mouse and join in...
