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 not a happy gamer here :( In the MP Match area ie capture the bag etc why dont you let people die that shoot their own team mates ? It has happend more than once now that my own team mates, people who I didnet select to play with , are so bloody greedy when i carry the bag of gold they tend to shoot me right before teh chest just so that they can can get the points , I mean the game is to be enjoyed not to be greedy etc surely should you implement as system should one team mate kill another that the killer should die etc or even one of their kills be transferd to the person he shot.

                    I mean come on this aint on and it is making this game unpleasent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I paid 60$ for a game I don't want awnser like: ''you may have success'' 2 weeks after the launch, That's just a joke

                                          Thanks. I really appreciate the response. I apologize for my 'tone'. You guys have done a great job on the game, I was just getting a little frustrated that I couldn't enjoy the multiplayer.
