Luckily you will be able to get a taste of the wild west action before than with the Red Dead Redemption: Gunslingers Facebook app that’s in open beta now.
The Facebook app will allow you to compete in duels as one of the three classes including Sharpshooter (accuracy), Outlaw (power), and Fast hands (speed) and lets you level up, earn achievements, and compete among the global leaderboards.
