The Official Social Club Multiplayer Events Series Calendar for April - June 2011

Posted on March 21 2011, 2:30pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Here you have it, the brand new calendar for the live streaming Social Club Multiplayer Events Series through June. Social Club events give you a chance to test your mettle against Rockstars and your fellow gamers online across a range of Rockstar games and modes. In the upcoming months we'll be playing Red Dead Redemption, Undead NightmareGrand Theft Auto IV and Episodes from Liberty City. If you've been unfulfilled with simply owning random people from around the globe in multiplayer, now's your chance to try and embarrass some of the people who actually helped bring you the game, at their own game, in a public forum. Beyond the satisfaction of strutting your smug superiority, you will get props from all the other people playing and watching the live stream (you may also be shouted out and immortalized with a screencap in one of our event recaps). That's all predicated on the fact that you actually win, an iffy proposition at best. Or get the chance to team up with us in Co-Op and Gang modes and let's house these other fools together, eh?

The central hub of each and every event is at the official Social Club Multiplayer Events page at www.rockstargames.com/socialclub/multiplayer, there you can join the official event chat and watch the live video stream. 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 fly super-rare custom consoles

Here's the complete calendar of what we've got lined up for April through June 2011:

  • Friday, April 15 (4-7PM Eastern)
    Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare
    For Xbox 360 on Xbox LIVE
    Three hours of bringing mayhem and unlawfulness to the west. Almost all modes will be played and we're also planning on giving away some more autographed Red Dead soundtracks that we still have. So if you missed your chance to win one a few months ago over the holidays, do not miss this one.
  • Wednesday, May 25 (4-7PM Eastern)
    Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition
    For PlayStation 3 on PlayStation Network
    Whether you've got the original version of Grand Theft Auto IV and/or the Episodes, or if you've got the full Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition disc, join us for plenty of racing and shootouts through the streets of Liberty City on PSN.
    Note: Due to the extended PlayStation Network downtime, this event has been re-scheduled from its original date and time [Thursday, April 28 (5-8PM Eastern)].
  • Thursday, May 26 (4-7PM Eastern)
    Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare
    For PlayStation 3 on PlayStation Network
    As always, we'll be taking requests to play favorite modes by popular demand - so come opinionated - and rough, ready, locked and loaded. We'll also have some more soundtrack giveaways for folks that enter the sweepstakes.
    Note: Due to the extended PlayStation Network downtime, this event has been re-scheduled from its original date and time [Friday, May 6 (4-7PM Eastern)].
  • Friday, June 10 (4-7PM Eastern)
    Grand Theft Auto IV & Episodes from Liberty City
    For PC on Games for Windows LIVE
    A hi-res 32-player free for all which always proves to be a great time. Let's see what you guys've got this time. We'll do some customized matches too.
  • Friday, June 24 (4-7PM Eastern)
    Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare
    For PlayStation 3 on PlayStation Network
    Closing out this season's calendar with a Red Dead event on PlayStation Network. Let's head into the dog days of summer by owning some zombies, ravaging some gang hideouts, and tearing up the frontier in some Free Roam. Giddy up. 

We'll have all of the details as always on the eve of each event, including official Gamertags and IDs, plus more information on giveaways. So check in at the Newswire the day before each scheduled session for that.

In addition to these full-on events, we'll be holding several Triple XP sessions for Red Dead Redemption as well as our usual impromptu multiplayer events, where we jump online and play when the mood strikes us. The only way to know when these unannounced sessions are happening is by following us on  our Twitter and/or Facebook pages (or pay close attention to the Twitter sidebar here on the right if you're not on either network). We'll see you online...

      Nice one :)

      Unfortunatly, I'd have to wait untill another 3XP session, because I'm going to the United Kingdom this Friday.
      Ow well, gonna turn on the Xbox and play some RDR: UN now :D

      I also wasn't asking for this specific event to happen to Xbox LIVE, more in like all cases.
      But, you've awnsered my question, and I thank you for that :P

      (*Hoping that the free DLC doesn't come out untill I return*)

      But anyway, I have another question for you, R*, will there be any "surprise" sessions, or have you guys stopped with that? Cuz the last time was on the 7th of June...

      Ow well, have a nice day, and I look forward to the July - September calender :)

        @Rykin122 Yep, anytime we turn Triple XP on it's for both PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE, and that includes this Friday June 24th from 4-7PM Eastern

        Look for the July-September multiplayer events calendar to hit the Newswire soon

          If there is gonna be a 3XP session on PSN, would it also be active on LIVE?
          I dearly hope so, need some leveling :p

          2nd Legend, Level 34 - Still love this game :)

            • RhinestoneCowboyon June 16 2011, 6:07pmReplyFlag
              Sorry. No, I wish they were though!

              PLEASE give Triple XP on XBL during the PSN RDR events and a double/triple XP weekend when the NEW Free DLC is released.
              • Weezy_F_187on June 16 2011, 10:37amReplyFlag
                @RhinestoneCowboy so they not giving away the old dlcs (undead nigthmare, legend and killers, liars and cheat)
                • RhinestoneCowboyon June 14 2011, 10:19amReplyFlag
                  Rockstar is giving us all FREE DLC for RDR. Not much info on it at the moment, but its got a new MP mode and that's about all they have said. Thanks Rockstar
                  • Weezy_F_187on June 14 2011, 8:19amReplyFlag
                    @RhinestoneCowboy what free dlc?
                    • RhinestoneCowboyon June 10 2011, 5:21pmReplyFlag
                      Will we get triple XP on the XBL, during the RDR PSN events later this month?? PLEASE!!

                      Oh and will there also be a double or triple XP weekend when the Free RDR DLC is released?? Again please.

                      We don't seem to get enough notice about the RDR triple XP events and they are always US times. So would be nice to know that these events will unlock triple XP on both systems, in advance.

                                Can someone tell me why I can't get the "Red Dead Rockstar" trophy. I've killed many people with this trophy and I still haven't gotten it.
