Saddle Up For Red Dead Redemption's 3XP Weekend

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
When the United States was expanding, author Horace Greeley's quote, "Go west, young man", was used to justify the rapid expansion of a burgeoning nation with little to no regard for wildlife and indigenous natives. It was simply "destiny" to stretch the borders from sea to shining sea, or so they said. That was over a century ago, however, and in modern times we don't need to literally slaughter an entire race of people to move about freely, we can do that on Xbox.

This weekend it might just be your destiny to go west as Rockstar has announced via Twitter that Red Dead Redemption will offer Triple XP across all game modes all weekend long.
Triple XP all weekend in #RedDeadRedemption multiplayer. Land Grab, Undead Overrun, Free Roam, Gang Matches, etc...every mode! #RDR3XP
What are you waiting for? Round up your posse for the Wild West.
