Red Dead Redemption: A Month of Multiplayer with Rockstar Games

Posted on May 18 2010, 10:49am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games, Social Club

That’s right.  Red Dead is out now throughout North America, and will be out worldwide by the end of this week on Friday May 21st. 

We’re celebrating by rounding up our own posses of Rockstars, and riding out into the plains, pueblos, mountains and towns of Red Dead Redemption to regulate on any and everyone on PSN and Xbox LIVE.  We’re damn good too.

Grab your pistols, load up your rifles and light your dynamite.  Let’s have it.

See if you have what it takes to track down and kill a Rockstar in Red Dead Redemption's online open world and nab the coveted “Red Dead Rockstar” Achievement/Trophy.

We'll be playing online on both PSN and LIVE starting tomorrow and going seven days a week for the next month.  Read below for details on all of the upcoming chances you’ll have to find us.

'Kill A Rockstar' - Red Dead Rockstar Multiplayer Challenge
From May 18th to June 1st, earn the Red Dead Rockstar Achievement or Trophy by playing multiplayer and killing a Rockstar - or someone who has already killed a Rockstar.  If you earn this prestigious Achievement or Trophy during that time period and have a membership in the Rockstar Games Social Club, you will automatically be entered for your chance to have a unique Multiplayer character with your likeness appear in upcoming Red Dead Redemption downloadable content.

The only way you'll know exactly when we're getting online for this specific type of session is by following us closely on Twitter and/or Facebook.

Further events and contests include:

  • Rockstar Posse Challenge – Every Saturday to and through June 6th at HIGH NOON, take your chances against the Rockstar Posse.  If you draw, better be Picasso…

        i dont no why but this seems like a good and slightly odd idea for a DLC : Playable animals...ORDER: Coyote, Boar, Wolf, Cougar, Bear but only wolves can make packs/groups

          R* one thing i dnt think you realise is now that you have released UN, ppl are gonna stop playing red dead. The single player for UN is amazing but can only be enjoyed for so long (once its completed there is little to do) and the multiplayer undead overrun feels a little tacked on. But because of the changes made in UN there are far less ppl playing online it seems; not as many ppl playing gangshootouts or free 4 all and hardly any playing free roam because it lacks any new content and relies on the 'same-old same-old' to be entertaining. Undead ---htmare lacks replayability and is letting down the rest of the game because of its lack of an Undead Free Roam; i guarantee you ppl would still play this game for a long time to come if you released an Undead Free Roam as a patch, or even a brand new dlc, pricing being up to you as a company.

          This is gonna be my last post of this website as I feel all hope is lost for this game. Ive completed every last detail, 100% in single player, 100% in multiplayer (rank 5, level 50) and competitive modes and esepecially free roam have lost their shine.

                    (ideas) vampires that run fast and jump high can only die by heart shot and fire..werewolves players that fade off and turn into wolves(pounce,run fast and bite)...cooking mixing animal meats whiskey and certain flowers for different meals...for the hunter outfit when it comes out can wear different hats vests belts and boots covers for any animal that can be skinned but for the hunter outfit only also a dog accompanies him(helps find treasure flowers and animals even people)...a rail road worker that carries 4 lamps on his belt that can be thrown a railroad whistle a big boomerang wrench and can turn stage coaches into steam powered coaches...a chef character with a big cooking pot (shield) that u can get inside for cover leave explosives inside the pot for a big bomb a small pot handle hat to block head shots and a skillet (same as a tomahawk)...model t races...bow and arrows...a dice package 6 weapons 1 die handle knife 2 barrel shot gun 2 die stock 3 die handle throwing knives 4 barrel pistol with 4 die handle 5 fingered brass knuckle with small die symbols 6 shooter with a 6 sided die chamber

                        Stop, stop, stop. What in God's name are you people doing? First off, I doubt you'll guys will even read this, but hey, I'm bored, so I might as well share alittle bit of my opinion to you.
                        Anyhow, what's this I'm reading, "Making a friendly-no fire free roam." Let me ask you people, what else could you do? The only thing to do in Free Roam is to kill other players. And that's exactly why everyone is upset. Look, don't waste your time making this "friendly" free roam. Instead, how about adding sitting, relaxing, card games, fishing (animation), but have it all in free roam? That way people won't shoot at every single living thing that comes across them, but instead will be getting drunk at the bar or some other random activity. And then, you wouldn't have to make another free roam server.
                        Haha, and what brought you guys down to the decision of adding an explosive rifle? Haha. Look, your fans, Rockstar fans, aren't all versions of a three year old Michael bay. We teenagers, who actually are allowed to played this game, want only a few things. We want fun, relaxation, and a place to get away from our crazy high school days. We don't want to compete with everyone and everything, we just want to have fun. Rockstar, please don't turn this into the Ballad of Gay Tony, where basically it was rocket launchers strapped on to rocket launchers.
                        Oh yes, and what's so hard about making our character sit down? It makes you feel as if you were actually part of the game, a great small little detail that enhances the game by so much.
                        Huh, well it doesn't matter. My apologies for writing so much. Good day to you.

                                Please add a Posse War feature R* like where you can declare war on another posse and wage how many kills until a posse wins or if you die you're out for good until it's over.
