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.
