EVENT COUNTDOWN
Don't know when the event begins in your time zone? Check above in this article on the day of the event for a countdown.

HOW TO FIND ROCKSTAR
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.

Again, look out for a brand new calendar of multiplayer events to continue down 2012 toward Max Payne 3's May launch...

                    @R* Is it true that the hosts from the 'Opie & Anthony Show' were in RDR? Example: Anthony played the shoekeeper in the Gunsmith stores and Opie's picture showed him as a bounty? I was just womdering?

                      It's great to play RDR (especially in the event's) and it's also GOOD from R* that the gamers get these Tripple XP weekends.
                      I have a little hope that we get in the future more XP 'S and that we can get to Legend 10 with other Legend characters (Walton Low and Mo van Barr) and Horses ( The War Horse From RDR Singleplay Or The Segret Horse That You Get If Your Killed Alot Of people As John Marston) that would be GREAT.
                      But i have lots of FUN in RDR it's one off the BEST games from R*. :D:D:D
                      I did not played often the last times with RDR but (lol) i still like it and i try to make some FUN video's from Multiplay :) when i have my recording things good installed because sometimes my vids are BAD all stripes in it :(

                      THNX ***Rockstar*** For All Your Great Games :)

                        @Anabolic_Cowboy @DGSimo @gennesr1234 Thanks all

                        @FeelThePayne Yep, you can gain XP in System Link and it will count toward your multiplayer rank

                        @GTAMASTER_08 We're actually planning on having a weekend event or two coming up in the next few months, so stay tuned for more details

                          @R* I have a question? If you rank up in System Link will your rank carry over to a Public Free Roam?

                              Damn Anabolic_Cowboy! You was tearing it up last night, especially in that Gang Shootout match where I'm petty sure you tore me a new one! LOL

                              Hopefully I can offer the payback for that in May if and should we meet in Max Payne 3. ;)

                                Thanks for the fun lastnight Rockstar! You all realize with the success of Redemption you have started a great franchise that could top GTA. So with that being said, the AI Programer position that you all are seeking to hire, is this position and project the next Red Dead? I sure do hope so, Redemption is the greatest game ever. Thanks again for the fun, I'm proud to say I got Dev3 a couple of times lastnight.
