“Read Dead Redemption has an extensive multiplayer mode. Instead of a lobby, it begins with a free-roaming multiplayer mode where players can run freely through the game world. They can form gangs with other players they meet there, and this transition can be computer controlled bandits.”

Included Multiplayer Modes:

Gold Rush - Collect as many bags of gold as possible
Deathmatch - Kill as many players as you can
Hold Your Own - Capture the Flag style game using Loot Bags

Red Dead Redemption will be released May 18th in North America and May 21st in Europe. When Rockstar reveal further official multiplayer details next week, we’ll keep you posted.
