Doubleheader: Red Dead Redemption Legends & Killers / Episodes from Liberty City PS3 Official Social Club Multiplayer Event (August 12, 2-7 PM Eastern)

Posted on August 12 2010, 7:01pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The events have ended.  A big thanks goes out to everyone that joined in – whether playing, watching the live stream or participating in the chat.  We look forward to seeing all of you in future events.

Join us August 12th for an epic doubleheader of multiplayer with Rockstar.  

In addition to our originally scheduled Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City PS3 Multiplayer Event from 4-7 PM Eastern, and in celebration of this week's release of the Legends and Killers Pack for Red Dead Redemption, we're adding an extra full two hours of Red Dead Competitive Multiplayer action using the Legends and Killers maps and features online from 2-4PM Eastern.  Both events will be on PlayStation 3 since Episodes PC and Red Dead Xbox 360 players got previous dibs - and we'll of course be jumping on to XBL for our next event (also you can always catch us online regularly by following our Gamertag announcements on Twitter and Facebook).

As always, the live stream and hosted chat will be available at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page for spectators if you can’t get online to play, or for if you want to multitask while playing to get the full experience of the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series

Here’s all the details for the event...


Red Dead Redemption: Legends and Killers Pack (2-4PM Eastern)

Start up multiplayer from the main menu.  This will place you into a Free Roam lobby.  Invite at least one friend and form a posse.  Then enter a game mode.  We'll be playing multiple game modes at the same time during the event.

Free Roam is the hub of your online experience.  Supporting up to 16 players, Free Roam allows you to explore with your friends and enemies, take out the gangs of outlaws or launch into more structured gameplay using the markers placed around the world.  We'll be forming posses and then heading into several game modes during the evening.

To form a posse, press the 'Select' button and use the menu.  This menu gives you several gameplay options and access to the list of players in your session.

For PlayStation 3, to start the game, invite your friends, form a posse and find Rockstar, follow these steps:

1. From the main menu, press 'Start' and then enter 'Online Multiplayer' by pressing the 'Square' button.

2. Once in a Free Roam lobby, press the 'Select' button to open the in-game multiplayer menu.

3. Press the 'R1' button and then the 'Triangle' button to 'Show Friends'.  Invite at least one friend into your posse using the 'X' button.

4. Once your friends are in the game, press the 'Triangle' button again to return to the 'Players' menu and select them with the 'X' button to 'Propose New Posse' or 'Send Posse Invite'.

5. Once you and your friends are ready to go, start up the game mode we're currently playing.  This can be found in the chat as the event rolls along.

Remember you must have one friend in your posse to play with Rockstar.  And as stated, pay close attention to the chat to know what game mode we're currently playing.

Participating PlayStation Network IDs for the Red Dead event include RedDeadDev3, RedDeadDev4, RedDeadDev5 and RedDeadDev6.  Only add one PSN ID to your friends list to play.


Episodes from Liberty City (4-7PM Eastern)

After a brief intermission (grab some refreshments and head to the loo), we'll begin the second part of the event in Team Deathmatch in The Lost and Damned which needs to be started via Party Mode using the in-game cellphone.  Make sure that your team size is at least two people for the first round of play.  By starting up Team Deathmatch from Party Mode, you will be automatically placed in special lobbies together with us and other event participants.  More info on using Party Mode is listed below.

As the event progresses, we'll be playing more multiplayer modes in The Lost and Damned.  We'll switch over to The Ballad of Gay Tony at around the halfway point.  Keep your eyes on the chat to stay completely up to date on which modes we're playing!

Cant jump in and play?  Follow all the action at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page.  As usual, we'll have a live streaming video broadcast of the in-game action plus a chat box so you can discuss all of the action with other gamers.

Hit up the chatbox during the event or just post your PlayStation Network ID in the Comments section below.

Episodes from Liberty City's in-game Party Mode is an easy way to get your group together and find matches.  Here are the three quick and easy steps to get you up and running:

  1. Save your current game.  To get started, fire up the in-game mobile phone by pressing "Up" on the keyboard.  Select Multiplayer > Party Mode > Yes.
  2. Next, open up your phone again and select the Friends option to invite at least one person into your Party Mode game.
  3. Once your team is ready to roll, open up the in-game phone again and select Games > Team Deathmatch.

Participating PlayStation Network IDs for the Episodes event include PlayRockstar1, PlayRockstar2, PlayRockstar3 and PlayRockstar4.  Only add one PSN ID to your friends list to play.


For those on Xbox 360, look forward to our next big live streaming Red Dead Redemption event coming Friday, August 27th – in the meantime, download the Legends and Killers Pack, learn the new maps and hone your skills with that Tomahawk… we’ll be ready.  And again, make sure to be following us closely on Twitter and Facebook, as we’ll be playing non-televised Legends and Killers sessions every day the rest of this week.

We'll be giving instructions and updates in the chat box on the modes we'll be playing as the afternoon rolls on.  See you there...

          "JayG24 12 hours, 23 minutes ago
          PLEASE READ! i killed at least 100 enemies with dynamite as Pig Josh, and i didnt get a trophy. i paid 10 dollars for dlc, please tell me whats up with that so i can stop wasting time."

          JayG24 you need to kill actual players not AI (Enemies)
          kill actual players like yourself with Pig Josh (25 Dynamite) and Red Harlow (25 Dead Eye)
          then I guarantee that you will get your new trophy. Hope this works out.

                                      @FauxGland Definitely understandable - we'll be having some late night sessions in the coming weeks, follow our Twitter and Facebook to know the moment we're getting online.

                                        Hey R*! Please do one of these for RDR after 7pm Eastern time on a weekday (or another weekend one- I missed the last one and they happen on Sat/Suns too far and in between). Those of us on the west coast with day jobs can't get on until 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern on weekdays and I'd love to play with you guys at least once!

                                          Don't tell me. You did it in free roam. Try Shootouts or Bag games.
                                          In future when you have achievement queries look at the numerous websites dedicated to such things.
                                          or maybe you've heard of something called google
