Red Dead Redemption Shoots You Right In The Facebook

Fans eagerly awaiting next month's release of Red Dead Redemption should mosey on over to Rockstar's Gunslingers Facebook app, where they can work out their frustrations against each other the old-fashioned way - with a barrage of hot lead.

Red Dead Redemption: Gunslingers is a Facebook app that sees players shooting it out for top billing as the orneriest cuss this side of the Mississippi, or something like that. Players pick from one of three classes - Fast Hands, Sharpshooter, or Outlaw - and then participate in duels in order to earn experience and level up their skills.

Duels play out as little animated movies, with different shot locations drawing varying degrees of damage. Pro tip: do not get shot in the head, it hurts.

It's a nifty little diversion that only requires a few mouse clicks to play, which is just how the Facebook crowd likes it.
