Time to unveil the lineup of official Rockstar Games multiplayer playsessions for summer 2011. The brand new calendar of events in the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series
will take us through the month of September, with action in Red Dead Redemption
, Undead Nightmare
, Grand Theft Auto IV
and Episodes from Liberty City
These events are your chance to get in on a round or two of multiplayer with Rockstar Games, allowing you to chat, shoot, race and ride your way with them through Liberty City and across the western frontier. It's your opportunity to show your skills to the creators of the game, and to see if you have what it takes. And if you just so happen to be lucky enough to have the opportunity to be the Boss in Cops n' Crooks, trust them... they've got your back.
The official Social Club Multiplayer Events page at www.rockstargames.com/socialclub/multiplayer
is the place to be during each of the dates of times listed below. There you can:
- Play with and against members of Rockstar Games, including some of the folks who helped create the games themselves
- Watch the live video stream of the event at the official Events page
- Join the live chat to talk trash while you play or just join in the discussion of the action as it unfolds
- Enter event sweepstakes at the Events page (entry period is only during event hours) for a chance to win prize packs of limited-edition t-shirts, stickers and sometimes even limited edition controllers
And now, the calendar...
