Finally after a long wait it's time for more action in Liberty City with the GTA IV: Complete Edition multiplayer event
on Thursday, August 30th from 12 to 3 PM Eastern Time US! Since it's been a while, all three platforms (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC) will be joining the fun. Of course you can expect prize giveaways among the usual features. More details below...
The day will actually hold two multiplayer events. GTA will take up the 12 to 3 PM slot and Max Payne 3 will take up 4 to 7 PM - all times Eastern US of course. Both events will include a double live-stream and Rockstar hosted chat. With Max Payne 3, this is your first chance to play in a multiplayer event in the Hoboken Rooftops
map of the brand new FREE Disorganized Crime Pack (coming later today), plus be sure to keep watch of the event leaderboards over at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page
. Rockstar will also have a pair of sweepstakes, with two opportunities to win one of ten total Rockstar Prize Packs containing collectibles and gear.
Participating Gamertags/Online IDs for the GTA IV event will be:
HOW TO FIND ROCKSTAR
- GwRockstar1 (PS3)
- GwRockstar2 (Xbox 360)
- GwRockstar3 (Xbox 360)
- GwRockstar4 (PC)
The event begins 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 Rockstar is beginning with, and type your Gamertag into the chat. Another way is just to send over a friend request to the Gamertags/Online IDs above. They'll do their best to get everyone in for a few rounds. More info on using Party Mode is listed below.

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:
- 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 a mode to find Rockstar in-game.
And for those sticking around for Max Payne 3, here's more details. Participating Gamertags/Online IDs for the Max Payne 3 event will be:
