Details for the Red Dead Redemption Multiplayer Event with TRIPLE XP (December 7th, 4-7pm EST)

Posted on December 6 2012, 2:30pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The event has ended, but Triple XP is on all weekend long. Enjoy!

We're kicking off our winter slate of Social Club Multiplayer Events Friday December 7th with a Red Dead Redemption Triple XP throwdown across both platforms. Join us in Free Roam on the Red Dead multiplayer frontier at 4pm EST / 9pm GMT with your favorite mount as we'll be playing through all of the game's mutliplayer modes including a few rounds of Undead Overrun from the Undead Nightmare expansion. We'll be online until 7pm EST / 12am GMT, but the Triple XP will be live all weekend long, even after the event comes to its conclusion.

We're streaming three of our four official dev players during the event - with two live video streams and chat hosted at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page, where you can also enter for a chance to win one of five Rockstar prize packs that include a Rockstar t-shirt, a deck of Red Dead playing cards and some assorted stickers (entry period begins at midnight EST on the Events page and lasts throughout the day). Our third dev player will be streaming on our TwitchTV page, which also includes a Rockstar-hosted chat.

OFFICIAL ROCKSTAR IDs

  • RedDeadDev3 (Xbox 360)
  • RedDeadDev4 (PS3)
  • RedDeadDev5 (Xbox 360 on Twitch)
  • RedDeadDev6 (PS3)

HOW TO FIND US
We'll invite some players during the event, but please keep in mind that we might not necessarily be able to get you in right at the beginning. Lot of players often attempt to send over friend requests and messages simultaneously, and we try to give priority to those asking in a respectful manner via chat or in comments... please don't spam!

To get started, select Multiplayer from the main menu, and choose Normal from the list of difficulties. We'll hop into some Hardcore matches during the day for sure, but we generally like to get started with Normal difficulty.

ADDITIONAL TIPS

  • Want to earn Triple XP, and fast? First lead your posse to Warthington's Ranch, then head to Pike's Basin, a Gang Hideout between Armadillo and MacFarlane's Ranch. Have a look at the in-game map, as both locations are marked in big letters. We recommend doing this with three or more players in a posse. Twin Rocks is another possibility, located northwest of Armadillo, but it doesn't reward as much XP as Pike's Basin does.
  • If you're having issues finding us or getting an invite, watch one of the video streams. Take note of the mode we're playing, and you might be able to join us by selecting that same mode in your game.
  • Submit your Gamertag or ID once in the comments section for this article about an hour before the multiplayer event begins. Let us know whether you're on PS3 or Xbox 360, and we'll be able to get you on our list and invited to the next available game.

Feel free to drop your own tips in the comments below in advance of Friday's festivities...

    THE BEST WESTREN GAME
  • Matt2u2on April 28 2013, 4:02pmReplyFlag
    Corvettezr1-13 is one of the biggest cheaters to play Red Dead Redemption on the Playstation 3. He can frequently be found on Reddead.us and Gamefreeze.net under the aliases Corvettezr1-13 and Vette. If anyone knows any other aliases he uses on the PS3 post it to expose him. The purpose of this message is to inform legitimate gamers that his use of an aimbot and modified controller will more than likely continue on games like GTA V and the next iteration of Red Dead Redemption when it is released.

        For the people who loves RDR, we want RDR2 with the same map but the towns could be developed, with more buildings and big, with cars (old motor-cars), we also could travell in trains and boats (multyplayer). Don´t forget to create new mini games (like land grab) in other places. The new set could be in the beginning of Twenty century. This game is my second life, i play every day!

                        what is XP? HOW WE EARN IT
                        • R* Mon December 8 2012, 5:17pmReplyFlag
                          @LEON.SINGH XP are points gained for certain in-game actions. Simply by playing the game and by making kills and completing objectives you will earn XP.

                        ah f**k, i forgot all about this event, damn
                        i have 2 tips, which helped me get a good amount of xp when i was levelling up without the double or triple,
                        1st tip, get one or two friends and head into pikes basin and replay it a few times, then head over to gaptooth breach and do it a few times, both these are really usefull hideouts for xp
                        2nd tip, on your own, replay twin rocks lots of times and try to get single headshot kills on all the gang members in it, best gun for the headshots would be the bolt action rifle(if you dont have the bolt action head over to tumbleweed and the rifle will be in the blue box upstairs in the saloon)

                            is it true that gta5 wont be out on pc format because of all the pc modders trying to ruin gta4 for the rest of us by placing a dinosaur in the airport when they should be getting a life?
