Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition Xbox 360 Official Social Club Multiplayer Event (March 18, 4-7 PM Eastern)

Posted on March 18 2011, 4:00pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games, Social Club

Update: The event has ended. Thanks to everyone that joined in – whether playing, watching the live stream, participating in the chat or entering the sweepstakes. We look forward to seeing all of you in future events.

We're diving headfirst into Liberty City for an afternoon of Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition on Xbox LIVE March 18th from 4-7PM Eastern, the latest in our Social Club Multiplayer Events Series.

We'll start things in Grand Theft Auto IV, later making our way through the many multiplayer modes of both The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. We'll be hosting a chat, live streaming it all and giving you the opportunity to win a t-shirt or the Grand Prize - two custom Rockstar Games Grand Theft Auto IV Xbox 360 controllers, all at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page.

Here’s all the details you’ll need to participate.

HOW TO FIND US
We'll begin the event in Grand Theft Auto IV. To join, start the in-game Party Mode using the in-game cellphone. Make sure that your in-game Party Mode team size is at least two people for the first round of play. Once ready, head to the chat to find out the mode we're beginning with, and you will be automatically placed in special lobbies together with Rockstar and other event participants. More info on using Party Mode is listed below.

As the event progresses, we'll be playing more multiplayer modes in Grand Theft Auto IV and the two episodes.

NEED A PARTNER?
Hit up the chatbox during the event or just post your Xbox LIVE Gamertag in the Comments section below.

OFFICIAL ROCKSTAR GAMERTAGS
Participating Xbox LIVE Rockstar Games Gamertags for the event will be:

  • GwRockstar3
  • GwRockstar4
  • GwRockstar5
  • GwRockstar6

Only add one Gamertag to your friends list to play.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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). 
  3. Once your team is ready to roll, open up the in-game phone again and select Ranked > Team Deathmatch for this event. Follow us in the chat to find out the modes we're playing.

SPECTATE AND CHAT
Cant jump in and play? You can still follow the event at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page. As usual, we'll have a live streaming video broadcast of the in-game matches plus a chat box so you can discuss the stream with others. Look below for specific directions you can follow to get online, grab a partner, and jump into the fray.

We will be giving instructions and updates in the chat box as the afternoon rolls on. See you there, and look for the new April-June 2011 calendar of events to be announced very soon...

              Dear Rockstar,

              Please update the GFWL client that comes with the game on Steam so that:

              -After authenticating via securom
              -After logging into social club
              -After signing into GFWL
              -After entering our key
              -After our profile is downloaded

              We don't have to mess with GFWL updates...and...

              -After downloading a small update in 30 minutes
              -After shutting down the game
              -After re-launching it
              -After unsuccesful install
              -After all the steps again

              Finally....Oooops! My saves, Where are they?

              FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!

              After I copy my savegame into corresponding folder, I can finally play GTA IV.

              Why and why I am unable to understand what it takes a god damn time to just replace an installer with a new one...


              Update 2: You also need to update the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package to this verison: KB973923

              And I am sure DirectX is also outdated....

                  @hell_raiser_604 We announce a calendar, then all you need to do is come to the multiplayer events page where we have have a chat, video stream & some giveaways, in the chat we announce the modes we're currently playing in, and sometimes you have the opportunity to give us your Gamertag or ID so we can invite, otherwise you just need to enter the modes we say we're playing to get in.

                  Here's the link to the new calendar of events through June and the link for the multiplayer events page:
