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
Can't jump in and play? As we stated above you can still follow the event at the multiplayer events page. 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. Get ready...

                This might be a bit irrelevant but I need to ask this, please answer if possible as I cant find a specific page in the site to ask questions related to Gta IV. Anyway my question is even though you showed Niko wearing gloves in the trailer why did you remove it from the game when it was released??

                      Once again, no further word on GTAV. Way to go R* I'm rapidly losing interest over here.

                            Damn, I really wanted one of those shirts and some stickers! But at least I got to play a few games with R*'s 4 and 6, PLEASE do another online event soon guys, playing with you was awesome. Also, If you can find a screenshot of me getting killed in any of the games then I would love to see it.

                                R*, please dont change the driving controls for GTA V. GTA IV's were real easy, and personally I think a lot easier than SR's. A lot smoother and more balanced. Please give us another trailer or more info soon!

                                  Hello Rockstar, I have played with you on this event! Me JonasREJCS and kaique09 are from Brazil and we loved the event! I want to know when the screens or videos of the streaming will come out...?

                                    @Sprunk95 We'll be sure to get you a response as soon as we're able, be sure you read the rules above the Comment Box, including the one that says this is "not a place to demand official responses from Rockstar"

                                    @GTAMASTER_08 Sorry to hear you’re in a tough spot, hope everything works out for you, and of course much love back

                                      Since R* hasnt confirmed whether or not the rumor of the fan email reponse saying GTA V info will be released in February is true, then we should be expecting some news in the upcoming month. I really hope so.
