Kicking off the first weekend following this week's release of Episodes from Liberty City for PlayStation 3 and PC are two back-to-back official Rockstar Games Social Club multiplayer events in our recently-released April-June calendar
where you have the chance to play against some of us from Rockstar New York, Rockstar Toronto and Rockstar North - the folks who brought you the game itself.
On Friday, April 16th, we'll match wits with all of you hungry for some epic PlayStation 3 Grand Theft Auto action from 4-7PM Eastern.
And on Saturday, April 17th, we'll be throwing down with PC gamers from 3-6PM EST.
If you haven’t played in one of our Social Club multiplayer events yet, you can read up a recap of the last one here
to get a good sense of how it all goes down. As always, those who aren't able to play can watch the streaming action as it happens and join in on our official live chat.
You will be able to find members of Rockstar at the beginning of each event by using the in-game cellphone in The Lost and Damned. Select Team Deathmatch as the game mode. Those of you gagging for some base jumping and APC'ing - don't worry, as we'll switch over to The Ballad of Gay Tony at some point during each event.
SPECTATE AND CHAT
Can't reach a PS3 or gaming PC during our play time? No worries. Come follow all the action at the Social Club Multiplayer Event page
with a live streaming broadcast on both days. We'll also have the chat box running during the events for those that want to discuss the action with fellow fans.
HOW TO FIND US
We'll be starting both events in Team Deathmatch in The Lost and Damned, so navigate through your in-game phone to Party Mode and have at least one friend join your Grand Theft Auto party. Once you and your friend(s) are ready and you're sure that the event has begun, start up Team Deathmatch. Rockstar players will be scattered through a number of different lobbies to allow for the maximum amount of people to play on each day.
If you're joining us a bit later into the event, start up any game mode as our Rockstars will be all over the place, covering a variety of game modes for the evening in a variety of different lobbies. As always, shout in our chat box on the Social Club Multiplayer Event page if you have any questions.

ABOUT PARTY MODE
Party Mode is an easy way to get your group together and find matches. Here are the 3 quick and easy steps to get you up and running:
- To get started, fire up the in-game mobile phone by pressing "Up" on the D-pad. Navigate to Party Mode.
- From here, open up your phone again and select the Friends option to invite your friends (you need at least one more friend to play with Rockstar).
- Once your team is ready to roll and the event has begun, open up the in-game phone again and select Ranked > Team Deathmatch.
Again, please be sure that you enter the lobby in a group of two if you plan to get matched up against us and other players for the event.
Sounds like a ton of fun. iGrandTheftAuto.com will be holding our regular PS3 deathmatch this Monday as well. We will be having a
match to IV and get into EFLC deathmatches next! Join us in a good send off of this great game! Sign up
