Recap & Screens: Red Dead Redemption Social Club Multiplayer Event on Xbox LIVE (August 27th)
(A stagecoach drive-by with Pig Josh at the helm during our most recent Red Dead Social Club multiplayer event...)
Thanks to everyone for joining us online, as well as in the chat during the live broadcasted stream of August 27th's official Red Dead Redemption event on Xbox LIVE in the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series. We rocked for three hours straight of fan-requested playlists during the afternoon including ones from the new Legends and Killers Pack, getting a taste of just about everything from the world of Red Dead Redemption multiplayer to date.
Read on for a recap highlighting some of the evening's memorable battles, followed by a choice selection of captured screens...
Beginning with the Legends and Killers Gang Matches playlist, 16 players gathered for a round of Hold Your Own in Manzanita Post, located in Tall Trees. During one part of the match, RedDeadDev3 set his sights on Bye Black Sheep who was using Legends and Killers exclusive Red Dead Revolver character Pig Josh from the Outfitter. RedDeadDev3 made his way through catASTROPhixxx and then faced off with Bye Black Sheep. But RedDeadDev6 had other plans, putting a bullet in his Rockstar brother RedDeadDev3's back. Ruthless. Congrats to xColinax for being the top player of that match, and to others in the posse: BigBilldo, K33nym, RedDeadDev5, St Jacob II, drsxbox and RedDeadDev3.
Looking for something a bit more open than the woods of Tall Trees, we headed to Río Bravo for some Gold Rush. Ludo xb360 got off to a rough start with a Tomahawk to the skull, courtesy of RedDeadDev3. RedDeadDev3 continued the barrage by delivering the business end of some Tomahawks to RedDeadDev5, House Of Kane, TheKnownOutlaw, RedDeadDev4, vamp616 and rcmTatersalad. Emanuel1989 ended with first place, racking up 15 kills, shooting 7 headshots and getting 7 captures.
Later in the event, we entered Gang Shootout in Escalera. The opening Showdown started with Camouflage Lion landing a fatal head shot on RedDeadDev4. After almost all players fell, Revolvers CYPRESS44 and RedDeadDev3 faced Cattle Rustlers jesus27 and xN1PP3Rx. Only one would remaind standing: jesus27. By the end of the round, Camouflage Lion, also using Legends and Killers Pack character Pig Josh (a fan favorite all over again), won top player. Props to you, sir.
Switching over to Outlaws to the End for some Cooperative Missions, PRO COPPERTAIL, InhaledBuffalo, PERRYzulu and RedDeadDev3 started The Escape. After getting the Gold Coach to Benedict Point, manning the cannons above Tumbleweed (check out the screen below) and facing the Showdown with the law, the four made their way with the Gold Coach to Ramita de la Baya. On the way, PRO COPPERTAIL and InhaledBuffalo both needed reviving, and RedDeadDev3 didn't fail them. Back on your feet, boys. A credit to their marvelous teamwork, the foursome ended with a score of 4090, Gold status and a time of 12:04.67.
In the final hour of the event, Cattle Rustlers and Revolvers faced off in Blackwater for a proper Gang Shootout. RedDeadDev3 headed for the roof of the Blackwater Hotel to get the high ground on the opposition below. While looking out for enemies, LukeLSD (playing as Annie Stoakes) climbed the eastern ladder and shot our dev in the face with a Repeater Carbine. Kudos to the top player II Ziv II (27 kills, only 3 deaths) and the rest of the Cattle Rustlers for winning $4600-$3600: LOOPSIDED, RedDeadDev5, KISS TH33 RING, SAWTOOTHPACK2, RedDeadDev3, RedDeadDev6 and RedDeadDev4.
And in the end, we finished up strong with another wild finale of Free Roam... no better way to close out the night and start the weekend off than by tossing around some dynamite, doing some stagecoach drivebys and collaborating on some bullet-riddled Gang Hideouts...
