Red Dead Redemption is a free roaming wester shooter, and to make something like that be more fun is to add multiplayer. Destructoid had a chance to play the game and sample the multiplayer. We have to wait until April for a reveal of this mutliplayer but according them, it was done in a 'surprising' way.
We just spent some time getting our filthy hands even filthier inside of Red Dead Redemption, where we actually skinned a horse and instantly felt like we'd killed Trigger. But no-good horse killin' aside, the big news here is that multiplayer is coming to Red Dead Redemption. We don't know how just yet, but a Rockstar representative told us that it would incorporate multiplayer in a "surprising" way. Surprising as in it doesn't totally suck like in GTA IV? Aw, snap. Yeah, we went there. Now we'll have to worry about being skinned.
