Win custom controllers in Red Dead Redemption multiplayer event

To commemorate the release of the Game of the Year Edition of Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar Games is kicking off their new Social Club multiplayer events calendar with Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare, exclusive to PlayStation 3.

The event will allow fans to join the multiplayer event where they can play alongside the staff of Rockstar Games, with a chance to win some awesome prizes. Twenty Rockstar prize packs are up for grabs, each containing a Rockstar t-shirt and stickers. However, the grand prize for the multiplayer event is one pair of individually-numbered, hand-painted limited edition PlayStation 3 controllers.

To enter, head over to the multiplayer events page beginning at 8PM (GMT) Friday October 14th, and fill in your info under the ‘Sweepstakes Entry’ tab near the bottom of the page. The duration of the event is 9PM-12AM (GMT) on PSN. Players can also enjoy triple XP all weekend for both Xbox 360 and PS3.

Rockstar Games has noted that people who wish to join do not need the GOTY Edition – anyone who has Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare, and/or any of the DLC can jump in and join when the applicable modes are played.

The next on the calendar will be Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition, which commences on October 21, 2011 on PSN from 10PM-1AM GMT – to celebrate the 10th Anniversary Weekend of the release of Grand Theft Auto III. Stay tuned for some special giveaways with that one too.
