HOW TO FIND ROCKSTAR
Again, Rockstar will begin the event in original Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer. To join, start the in-game Party Mode using the cellphone. Make sure that your in-game Party Mode team size is at least two people. Once ready, head to the chat to find out the mode they're beginning with, and type your Gamertag into the chat. Another way is just to send over a friend request to the Gamertags above. Rockstar will do their best to get you in for a few rounds. More info on using Party Mode is listed below. Hit up the chatbox during the event if you need a partner!
ABOUT PARTY MODE
Grand Theft Auto IV's in-game Party Mode is an easy way to get your group together and find matches. Here are the three quick and easy steps to get you up and running:
SPECTATE AND CHAT
- Save your current game. To get started, fire up the in-game mobile phone by pressing "Up" on the D-pad. Select Multiplayer > Party Mode > Yes.
- From here, open up your phone again and select the Friends option to invite your friends (you need at least one friend to play with Rockstar).
- Once your team is ready to roll, open up the in-game phone again and select Ranked > Team Deathmatch for this event (or whichever event is discussed in the chat).
Can't jump in and play? As stated above you can still follow the event at the multiplayer events page
. Rockstar will have a live streaming video broadcast of the in-game matches plus a chat box so you can discuss the stream with others. Look above for specific directions you can follow to get online, grab a partner, and jump into the fray!
Sounds like a plan! We can't wait for the GTA V
events in the future!
