The First Official Max Payne 3 Multiplayer Events at Social Club - Win Custom Controllers with Your CREW Emblem

Posted on May 18 2012, 12:00am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

*** THANK YOU: This weekend's debut Social Club Multiplayer Events for Max Payne 3 have concluded, but there are a lot more in store. Join us next weekend Friday May 25th at 11AM - 2PM Eastern on Xbox LIVE, and Saturday May 26th from Noon - 3PM Eastern on PSN. We'll have more great giveaways, plus the live-stream, chat, leaderboards and more. Stay tuned also for announcement of who won our first pairs of customized CREWS controllers soon.

Get ready for the very first of many official Max Payne 3 Social Club Multiplayer Events lined up, kicking off this weekend in grand fashion - this Friday May 18th from 4-7PM Eastern on PSN and this Saturday May 19th from 1-4PM Eastern on Xbox LIVE (with many more dates to follow into June and to be announced all summer long and beyond).

This is your first chance to rally your CREW to face off with and against the ROCKSTAR CREW of Max Payne 3 developers from Rockstar Studios worldwide on the live streamed broadcast (now with a double-stream as announced last week). For the first time ever, there is now a special in-game Social Club Multiplayer Event Playlist that you'll see in your Multiplayer menu of playlists active only during the scheduled event times. Just jump into that playlist to look for the Rockstar Crew (Gamertags and IDs below) in lobbies or to start your own game - there's also now a Social Club Event Leaderboard for players and CREWS to show and prove at each event.  

Plus we're giving away a truly unique special grand prize - on both Friday and Saturday during event hours, we'll have a sweepstakes open at the Event page to enter to win a pair of PS3 or Xbox 360 controllers customized with your ID and your CREW emblem. These bad boys will be blacked out, hand-painted with a serious matte black finish and solid black buttons and your CREW emblem proudly tailored on. 10 runners-up each day will also win a Max Payne 3 Prize Pack with an official tee, bullet keychain, pill box and deluxe sticker pack.

You can also join the live Social Club chat on the Events page to spectate, comment on the action, and talk about your favorite Max Payne 3 moments and modes. The Social Club chat has also been enhanced with new features to show which of your Social Club Friends are logged in so you can call out your mates and Crew members at will.

Official Rockstar players are marked with a special visible in-game dog tag logo:

  • MaxPayneDev1
  • MaxPayneDev2
  • MaxPayneDev3
  • MaxPayneDev4
  • MaxPayneDev5
  • MaxPayneDev6

And don't forget that in addition to our live streaming scheduled Social Club events, members of Rockstar Studios worldwide will be online playing Max Payne 3 Multiplayer every single day through June 15th - a non-stop month of Max Payne 3 Multiplayer with the folks who all helped create the game itself. We'll be playing about 2-3 hours each day with devs from Leeds, Lincoln, London, New England, New York, North, San Diego, Toronto and Vancouver taking turns to show you how it's done on both consoles seven days a week (and on the PC version beginning May 29th).

Make sure you're following us on our Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Steam (for PC) pages to get the word each day of exactly when we're loading up, Loading Out and heading into Gang Wars, Payne Killer, Team Deathmatch and FFA Deathmatch along with info of which Gamertags/IDs we're using for that day.

    How long does it take for rockstar support to answer requests? I have a problem. Bought a rockstar pass through steam, tried to use it in max payne 3 marketplace. It said that the key I got was already in use and I havent gotten the goodies I paid for. I sent a ticket saturday 30th of june but still no reply. Anyone knows how long it usually takes?

              The controller of the Playstation 3 and Xbox360 has an amazing painting, it could also be sold with the ability to put your gamertag and clan badge, it would be fantastic

                I hope that i win 1 controller because my crews emblem is the Dominican Flag... it would be awesome

                    You can't start a feud against another crew if it's just one crew member. I think so anyway.

                      What I meant was that Max Payne 3 is releasing in Japan on September 6th. I was asking if R* was gonna wait until then to release V info, or just release it sooner

                        @Rockstar I finished the game last night on hard and let me say you blew me away rockstar thank you to everyone that was on the game. Rockstar Vancouver you guys did a great job! The ending was PERFECT! Now im gonna beat it on hardcore and old school. But before i do im gonna go pre-order GTA V if i can. So thanks again for a game that was worth more than $60!

                          Crews are useless... Can you join your crew during an ongoing game ? Nope. Can you decline a feud when playing solo, thus preventing the you got your ass kicked stats ? Nope. Is there any way to set-up a who's a better shooter without all the rambo b.s. crew vs crew ? Not at all. All lights and bells to boost the social club.

                            @AngryAardvark And Crews are a great feature, I play with mine all the time since we're always online. It's really fun to represent my Crew and check my stats, I don't know why you don't like them.

                          Hey R* you said we will be getting more GTAV info fter Max Payne 3 comes out, but the ting is, it coes out in September for Japan or something like that. Does that mean we will have to wait until September at least for GTAV info, or is there a chance we may get new info sooner?

                          MP3 is cool btw

                            @Gionascm2 R* has not given any official Release dates for V. So whoever told u about a Japanese Release is full-of-it!! When R* is ready to release some info, they will. For now, just enjoy Max3! :)

                            @FugetSudo_Jr I think he meant Japan gets Max Payne 3 in September.

                            @Gionascm2 oh yeah! my apologies man! after reading this again I see what he meant! ok... I agree now. I thought waiting an extra 2weeks for Payne3 was bad... jeez!

                            @Gionascm2 Once again, Rockstar did not confirm anything about GTA V like that, they didn't say GTA V will come after Max Payne 3 or anything
                          • Gionascm2on May 22 2012, 10:24pmReplyFlag
                            @Sprunk1995 Yeah they did in some of their e-mails, and in several comments scattered throughout their website. It's also common sense that GTAV will come out after MP3.

                            @ everyone

                            I have a free max Payne one download code for xbl for anyone who wants it. I'll give it to the first one to sent me a message on xbl, I'm on right now.

                            Its expires today by the way.

                            Sorry r* if this violates some of your rules. I just don't want to see this code go to waste.

                              Hey @R*, I just came across the Rockstar Pass prize stuff at the Support page. What? The Rockstar Pass was supposed to cost € 20 and not € 30? Well I bought the Pass and I had to pay € 30 for it, which I thought was the right prize (at least I can remember you guys said it would cost € 30), what can I do to get back the € 10 Euros I payed too much? Really confused about that now.

                                @miGma06 Yesterday they said next week, so next week means this week we'll get more PC infos

                                "More info on PC version coming in the next week or so" to be exact
                            • ferguson99on May 21 2012, 8:52amReplyFlag
                              much more important red dead redemption events and the random triple xp sessions............just because you have a newer game out theres still millions on RDR everyday because we love the open world free roam games.

                              I seem to be saying that alot "open world free roam" thats because them sort of games are more fun we don't want to be running around in a gang match for 10 mins and then set up another game.
