(Players using Red Dead Revolver characters with the new Legends and Killers Pack get ready for Gang Shootout in Escalera...)


(...as well as racing and gunplay in Episodes from Liberty City during our afternoon of gaming on PSN.)

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our most recent Social Club Multiplayer Events of live streaming, chatting, and of course multiplayer mayhem - the August 12th epic double-header of Red Dead Redemption Legends & Killers and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City on PlayStation Network.  

Xbox LIVE players, make sure to join us tomorrow for our next event - a proper Red Dead session all the trimmings and modes by request from 4-7 PM Eastern.

Read on for a recap and screens of some memorable moments from the 8/12 PSN doubleheader...

We began in Gang Shootout in Thieves' Landing with the Legends and Killers Pack for Red Dead Redemption.  During the round out on the foggy docks, funkynoob found comfortable cover behind a crate, taking down RedDeadDev3 and cierajd3jeralynn.  In the end, Dutch's Gang earned the win, and top player honors went to didi727 with 13 kills, 9 deaths, 8 headshots and 1 capture.  Other players on the winning team included opcy, josesanlirio, MegaDonaldduck1, Jack_theGamer and boshell.

Next up, a new batch of players with the four Rockstars entered Shootout in Pacific Union R.R. Camp.  All but two fell during the opening Shootout: RedDeadDev3 and cacarin.  Hiding behind a wagon wheel, cacarin fired rounds toward the Rockstar, but RedDeadDev3 aimed, fired and took care of business.  Later in the match with less than a minute remaining, cacarin got revenge, hiding in a bush and gunning down RedDeadDev3 with a Winchester Repeater.  Congrats to the winner Mr_BadAss911 with 33 kills, 13 deaths and 3 robbed kills.

After a few more modes, we went into Gang Shootout in Escalera, and in the opening Showdown blastbros propelled his team to a win with three early kills.  Later on while RedDeadDev3 and RedDeadDev5 were taking position atop a hill, leptics73, using the new character Mr. Kelley (available exclusively with the Legends and Killers Pack), snuck up from behind and claimed kills on both of them with the High Power Pistol.  The top player was darkpower760 along with teammates blastbros, VASILI-SAISER, didi727, Jack_theGamer, josesanlirio, leptics73 and gunyolan.

To end things in Red Dead, we entered Free Roam with 16 players and plenty of snipin', dynamite and rooftop knife fights.  After a short intermission so everyone could head to the john and grab a snack, we switched over to Episodes from Liberty City for a some combative street racing.  We started things in The Lost and Damned with 16 players in Team Deathmatch in Liberty City.  The first of a whole lotta kills went to Henning92 who shot our own PlayRockstar1.  A bit later while PlayRockstar1 was shooting at gtafreak112 from behind cover, Henning92 once again ran up and got the kill on PlayRockstar1.  No surprise that Team Six's Henning92 and gtafreak112 were victorious with 43 kills, 12 deaths and $4,398 - nice.

Later in the event, we brought in a new crop of contenders and started Witness Protection.  The Rockstars were the N.O.O.S.E., driving the prison bus and several police cars and dropping off prisoners at different police stations across the city.  PlayRockstar1 was protecting bus driver PlayRockstar4 when a bit of trouble crept up from behind in the form of The LOST's MarcoGT5 and redhondamike.  They sprayed PlayRockstar1's car with bullets, catching it on fire and causing the car to explode on the highway high above the streets.  Props go out to The LOST for winning this one: pocman2008, MarcoGT5, barney1610, redhondamike and slamthepanda21.

Switching episodes to The Ballad of Gay Tony, we fired up GTA Races with Sports Bikes for two laps on the track Tour D'Algonquin with traffic set to parked and pedestrians set to medium.  Late in the race, PlayRockstar1 was doing tricks with his bike when Coolride hit a bump in the road, sending him flying high into and wrapping around a street lamp...and seconds later getting flattened by PlayRockstar1's wheels.  In 1st place with $1,350 and a time of 08:13:46 was Slamthepanda21.  Grats.

A new set of players came into the next lobby with the Rockstars, this time for 10 minutes of Deathmatch in Global Domination with Episodic weapons.  In one 15 second span of this particular round, PlayRockstar1 took down PlayRockstar2, CrazyKurt shot PlayRockstar1, jorgesmok and redhondamike killed each other at the same time, and after respawning PlayRockstar2 took care of both PlayRockstar1 and CrazyKurt.  And someone completely uninvolved in that wild mess won the round: Coolride, finishing first with 32 kills, 17 deaths and $3,719.  Seems best to watch the stooges from far away.

Ending in Free Mode, dklw567, PlayRockstar1, FUNKY_MEDINA, minty12a, kitkatp, adamconnor4 and PlayRockstar3 all got in a punching and kicking fight at the airport that eventually escalated to knives, and then grenade launchers.  It was really a spectacular way to end the big afternoon for sure.  Check below for screens of just a few of the many memorable moments...


(In a round of Hold Your Own in Tumbleweed, blastbros manned this cannon and got 31 kills with zero deaths.  Superb, sir.)


(RedDeadDev3 uses Pig Josh to tomahawk Imperium, both the character and weapon exclusive to the Legends and Killers Pack.)


(Jack_theGamer falls to usmcmsgt's bullets in Thieves' Landing while RedDeadDev3 and opcy (foreground) seek revenge.)


(PlayRockstar1PlayRockstar2 and PlayRockstar3 protect prison bus driver PlayRockstar4 from incoming The LOST enemies.)


(TheMagicBadger and TheAwsome0possum fire away at PlayRockstar1 during Team Deathmatch in Liberty City.)


(Minty12a, adamconnor4 and kitkatp make way as PlayRockstar1 aims for bodies in Free Roam.)

                            I'm with DeezleDan. I absolutely despise Cannon Campers. And if you could care less sir, go trade RDR in for Halo while the people who actually enjoy the game like me and and Deez use actual guns to win. You probably ruined that round; and their just being nice. You're sorry.

                              Hey R* Players! You know, if you see me in RDR there's a good chance I've already seen you. I'll be more than happy to stumble upon a RDR PS3 match with you guys in it and but a bullet through you. (Or a tomahawk) >:)

                                        Looks like a nice event but:
                                        The only reason I hang around here is to finally see a trailer of the upcoming dlc. Please release a trailer so I can see if the new content is worth it. I know what your comment is... stick to the news wire... ;)
                                        But I stick to it way too long. I don't want to visit it so often!
