Recap & Screens: Red Dead Redemption Official Social Club Multiplayer Event on PlayStation Network (July 13th)
(RedDeadDev3 takes Dead Eye aim at dj-guinness from inside a building in Tumbleweed in the latest Social Club multiplayer event...)
Players and spectators from all around the globe came through on Tuesday, July 13th for an evening of Red Dead Redemption on PlayStation Network, the latest in the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series and the first of many events on our brand new calendar spanning through September. Players spent hours fighting in multiplayer, watching the live video stream and participating in the chat.
Read on for a recap of some of the memorable rounds we played during the event, followed by screenshots.
Four Rockstars entered Gang Shootout in Las Hermanas, and after RedDeadDev3 and his Dutch's Gang companions won the opening Showdown, they scattered to take cover from the soon-to-respawn Cattle Rustlers. RedDeadDev3 climbed to the top of the tallest building and scoped the courtyard for enemies. Meanwhile, down below, MC_Manux landed a perfect headshot on mick4739, someone that RedDeadDev3's LeMat Revolver couldn't quite reach. Congrats to FrankyeBoy for being the Top Player and for Dutch's Gang for ending with the win.
Entering Outlaws to the End, Red Dead Redemption's free Cooperative play multiplayer DLC, RedDeadDev6, OCELOT-1985, Zx_DarkAngel_xZ and BeazelWeasel posse'd up and chose their classes for The Escape. After wasting the first wave of enemies, everyone piled into the Gold Coach and headed for Benedict's Point. OCELOT-1985 and RedDeadDev6 leaned out the sides of the coach while Zx_DarkAngel_xZ took the reins and BeazelWeasel rode shotgun. No revivals needed for the rest of the mission as the posse reached the Point with nary a scratch, strong enough to claim Gold.
Continuing with Cooperative Missions, RedDeadDev3, RedDeadDev4, EC-11NYY and POINTS702 entered The River ready to take out some rebel encampments. They pretty much owned the first area, no one needing any revivals whatsoever. However, after landing at The Scratching Post, the enemy gunfire proved a bit much for EC-11NYY, falling down injured and helpless. RedDeadDev4 ran to revive, but quickly had to take cover when he saw that three enemies were right around the corner. After picking them off one-by-one, he got EC-11NYY back on his feet and the whole posse ended the round with a Silver.
Returning to Competitive Multiplayer, the Rockstars began a game of Hold Your Own in Tesoro Azul. RedDeadDev3 and Joescasino headed around the north wall after the Showdown ended, hoping to capture the enemy bag. RedDeadDev3 killed FrankyeBoy and Joescasino slaughtered onlinegamer2, but MC_Manux ended both of them with a few rounds to the head. Grats to Joescasino, ga1994-33, nuttslap, Black_Zangetsu91 and the Rockstars for winning 1-0.
In true Social Club multiplayer event fashion, we ended the event with a good 20 minute dessert of Free Roam mayhem, complete with Dynamite, High Powered Pistols and more. Most of the Free Roam took place in and around Armadillo. An always bloody fun way to end a great evening of multiplayer with everyone from around the world...
