Time to take back Liberty City once again while sending fellow fans and Rockstar Games themselves to the bottom of the Humboldt River. It all happens tomorrow, April 5th, from 4 to 7 PM Eastern Time US on the PlayStation 3. This is the last Grand Theft Auto event for a little bit since Max Payne 3 will be taking center stage in May and June but not to fear, there will be more in the future!
As usual there will be a live video stream on the multiplayer events page, and you can also join in the chat and enter to win one of 20 prize packs! Winners will receive a t-shirt, GTAIV license plate and a bunch of stickers – all delivered to your doorstep!
Rockstar will begin the event in GTA IV and later switch over to The Lost and Damned
and The Ballad of Gay Tony
, about an hour for each. They recommend staying in the chatroom on the multiplayer events page
while playing so you'll be able to let them know your PSN IDs. Any version of GTA IV or the episodes will be compatible with Rockstar, so don't worry if you don't own the Complete Edition. PlayRockstar6
will be in original Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer for the entire event for those that don't have the episodes!
OFFICIAL ROCKSTAR PSN IDs
Only add one PSN ID to your friends list to play. If you have a different version than the Complete Edition disc for Grand Theft Auto IV, no worries as you will be compatible with.
Where's Rockstar? Pay attention to the live chat on the Social Club Multiplayer Events page
. They'll announce where they're at in there. They'll begin in Grand Theft Auto IV in GTA Race, and later progress to the two episodes. Use the in-game cellphone to select the mode they're playing during the event.
