Recap and Screens: Red Dead Redemption Official Social Club Multiplayer Kickoff Weekend (May 21-22)

Posted on May 28 2010, 12:15pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games


(The first weekend of live streamed Red Dead events started off with a showdown.)

It was a proper first kickoff to the world of Red Dead Redemption multiplayer action last weekend with the first Red Dead installment in the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series following the game's release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 last week.  Players from across the world of Rockstar - from San Diego to New York to the UK - shot it up with an unprecedented turnout of participants through all of the multiplayer modes as well as chatting up all the action happening on the live stream at the Events page for 8 full hours between Friday and Saturday on both platforms.

Below you can find a recap along with screenshots of just a few standout moments from both events - the PSN one held on Friday afternoon, and the Xbox LIVE one on Saturday...

One of the first rounds played in the PSN event was the Competitive mode Shootout in Las Hermanas.  In the opening standoff, our own RedDeadDev3 aimed at the head of fjperez74, the player directly to his left.  Boo-yow!  A successful shot sent fjperez74 to the ground as all of the players fired their weapons while searching for cover.   Later on, RedDeadDev3 climbed a ladder to a rooftop to take down lossarnach.  It proved to be a successful strategy, and RedDeadDev3 placed first with a total of $1150, 23 kills and a mere 11 deaths.


(The beautiful vistas of the environment surrounding Las Hermanas provided an epic backdrop to a glorious shootout.)

Next, the Rockstars started Hold Your Own in Chuparosa (where each team has a base and a bag to protect from infiltration and theft by the other side), going 5-on-5 against stickywarrior, B3gG4rZz, St-Christopher, nukeboy123 and TSP_mouDAmou.  After the standoff, RedDeadDev4 grabbed the enemy bag and ran around the outside of Chuparosa with RedDeadDev3 watching his back.  Steps away from the getting the capture, the Rockstars had one final enemy to shoot down.  B3gG4rZz started firing away, killing RedDeadDev3 but then taking a bullet to the head from RedDeadDev4.  The Rockstars ended the game with a shutout score of 3-0.


(B3gG4rZz and RedDeadDev3 exchange gunfire during the standoff in Hold Your Own.)

We moved from there to Grab The Bag in Tumbleweed - where players on opposing teams race to obtain spawned treasure bags to bring back to their team's chest, which also must be protected from looting by the other side.  After the Rebeldes won the showdown, RedDeadDev6 picked up the first bag and ran to the capture point with the bodyguard assistance of RedDeadDev3.  Enemies SlyCooper97 and S4YC3R- closed in to prevent the capture, but RedDeadDev4 came to the rescue, shooting and killing SlyCooper97 and giving enough time for RedDeadDev6 to deliver the capture for the Rebeldes, the eventual winners.

The finale of Friday's PSN event found us returning to Free Roam and gathering a posse to go knife hunting in Tall Trees for bears and cougars.  Out in the wilderness, we were quickly shown who's the boss (no Danza).  Over the course of about 20 minutes, several bears and cougars mauled all of the Rockstars as well as just about every player in the area, 'twas a really fun (and messy) way to end the evening.

Saturday afternoon's Xbox LIVE event began in Gang Shootout in Armadillo where the American Army players defeated the Rockstars (Miners) in the initial showdown.  Attempting to get revenge, RedDeadDev4 nailed MiguelOneLove with a head-shot and RedDeadDev3 took down MikeGlides.  The score remained fairly even for most of the match until the American Army pulled away with the victory.  Bravo to SkullSavior, the top player with 18 kills and just 13 deaths.


(Gunfire flies in Armadillo during the heat of the battle between the American Army and the Miners.)

The RedDeadDev's later entered a Hold Your Own in Chuparosa.  After the Rockstars won the showdown, war broke out in the middle of town next to the fountain with RedDeadDev3 sliding and taking cover behind a low wall.  He may not have known it, but his head was above the wall just enough for xxMR TINYxx to place a bullet riiight between the eyes.  However, vengeance was served swiftly as RedDeadDev3 just minutes later went on a rampage, slaughtering xxMR TINYxx, mac12t, NaughtyDevil93 and Frozenblood25.  In the end, all of that carnage just wasn't enough as x0 Hunt3r 0x and the four others just mentioned beat the Rockstars 3-1.

The epic landscape of Diez Coronas was one of the last settings in the Xbox LIVE event, this time for another round of what was quickly becoming a fan favorite of the weekend: Hold Your Own.  While some players camped back at their bases, others went for the opposition's bag.  RedDeadDev3 decided to crouch next to a trail that leads to his camp, gunning down TAGS o GirLLy x, xMOBx Krazeeguy, Hamsterchief and CorranFox as they all fell right into his trap.  It wasn't enough to win it though as the Cattle Rustlers defeated the Rockstars (Dutch's Gang).  Grats to CorranFox for being the top player of that match.

We ended the event in the same grand fashion as the day before: hunting bears and cougars in Free Roam.  No less vicious or bloodthirsty on Saturday as Friday as beasts terrorized man in the open frontier.  Below are a few more screens from the event.

      Rock Star I love this game please reply yes or know to this, because im kinda ill frustrated about this.I got all the prestige done most of my free roam challenges done,and still i havent got my lasso on free roam, but when i go to my weapons list you put a spot there with a x where it would go, the problem with that is all the spots have x at first making people think you have to unlock one.I played for 4 days straight 2 days no sleep unlocking every thing just to get the lasso please help me because i feal like i got tricked so that i would keep playing it, so please say its not so because if it is Im going to get rid of my ps3 because its starting to feal like its all about the money.im 30 years old i bought four copies of this games for my brother two nephews and and my son and we play this game alot,I play in my spare time away from my job im a over the road driver i spent half my scheduled rest weak to play this game and unlock the lasso.Just think for a moment whats a cow boy with out a lasso, thats like cereal with out milk.The only thing we have to do rock star, thats right we as a family i have all your titles my whole family love these games, but what we can do is make it where we could use lassos to capture other players so that the rest of their posse have to come rescue them and cut them free and if they didnt have a posse other player could save them to earn 250 xp for saving bounded players. then that would also be good for bounty players as well because you could taake them alive and earn more xp.Ok next lasso details:ok playes using lassos can lasso people and wild hores only when you lasso a player you would have to be quik to hog tie before they break free because the lassoed person cold use the right analog stick to wiggle the rope loose.once you hog tie them they cant get free then the peron with the lasso could place them on the horse once on horse the all the sheriff stations would pop up.for the rider,and for the captured every one in server would get notified to save him for reward from that person wich is xp points. or the captured can allways bribe the person in to letting him go for a spot in the crew or releasing mercy xp spot for having a heart to let them go,and mabe put minni games on there to where you could challenge some one in cards, horse shoes and other games to for a gain or lost in xp and that will open more challenges rockstar thanks for listening and i enjoy all your titles

        The lasso is too open to abuse in free roam; imagine the frustration at constantly having to leave a server because some idiot hogtied you and left you in the middle of nowhere. And how long would you be willing stay tied up on the back of someone's horse or getting dragged through the dirt. People would just quit.

        Lasso could only work if it was for NPCs only.
