Red Dead Redemption is less than a week away now, and Rockstar Games has announce the Rockstar Games' Social Club integration that will play a part in unlocking achievements in the Western sandbox game. This system also allows for special cheat unlocks and secrets that have yet to be revealed.
One of the very first unlockable cheats Rockstar gave as an example is the "Pike's Basin Challenge" in which players complete the Pike's Basin side quests in game to unlock a cheat called "Guns Blazing". This cheat will allow players to shoot bullets that light enemies on fire. A whole slew of bonuses in the same vein will follow which allows for some more sandbox fun.
There is also a secret achievement that will unlock a new feature in Red Dead Redemption when a collective amount of money is earned from all players connected to Social Club. What this achievement is has yet to be announced, but granted it will probably be pretty exciting when that collective number is hit.
Red Dead Redemption comes out next Tuesday, May 18 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, with social events kicking in on May 21 and 22 for the respective systems. The anticipation keeps building for this huge title, and I can't wait any longer.
