The PlayStation Network is officially back online, and with that comes the triumphant return of Rockstar Games Social Club Multplayer Events for the PS3 community.
It's time for two consecutive afternoons of multiplayer on PSN with Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition on Wednesday May 25th
from 4-7PM Eastern and Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare
with TRIPLE XP on Thursday May 26th
from 4-7PM Eastern. (Note that Triple XP will also be active for Xbox LIVE during this time.)
The events were originally scheduled for earlier in the month, but moved
after the unfortunate PSN downtime. The PSN players fiending for action better be ready. Plenty of time to practice your aiming, shooting, riding and racing in single player... and you're prepped to take everyone else to school in multiplayer, right? Time to dominate the competition!
Get on over to the multiplayer events page
during both sessions for a live chat, video stream and your chance to win one of several prizes, detailed below. And if you play on PC, join Rockstar for the next event in the calendar on Friday, June 10th, when they'll be taking each other on in Grand Theft Auto IV and Episodes from Liberty City on Games for Windows Live.
