GTAIV & Max Payne 3 Social Club Multiplayer Event Double Header Today

Posted on August 27 2012, 8:07pm | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The events have ended. Thanks to everyone that joined us.

This Thursday, August 30th, we're turning the last Social Club Multiplayer Event of the summer calendar (fall calendar to be announced very soon) into an epic double-header with a twin bill of events across all three platforms (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC) - with Rockstar Games developers, special invited guest players and you all shooting it out on the live-stream across Liberty City, Hoboken and the favelas of São Paulo.

Our first stop is Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition (playing multiplayer modes from the original GTAIV release and the Episodes, so you don't need to own the Complete Edition specifically to play) between 12-3pm ET / 5-8pm BST and then, after a very short break, we'll be jumping into Max Payne 3 between 4-7pm ET / 9pm-midnight BST. Both events will include a double live-stream and Rockstar hosted chat. With Max Payne 3, this is your first chance to play in a multiplayer event in the Hoboken Rooftops map of the brand new FREE Disorganized Crime Pack, plus be sure to keep watch of the event leaderboards over at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page.

We'll also have some special invited guests joining us at the Rockstar Rooftop that day for some Max Payne 3 multiplayer, a few NYC-area notable players that we're friends with on Twitter and here at the Social Club - including the inimitable Hard8Times. You'll be able to catch the Rooftop action live-stream on our Twitch page. We'll also have a pair of Sweepstakes, with two opportunities to win one of ten total Rockstar Prize Packs with collectibles and gear.

Participating Gamertags/Online IDs for the event will be:

  • PlayRockstar (PS3)
  • GwRockstar2 (Xbox 360)
  • GwRockstar3 (Xbox 360)
  • GwRockstar4 (PC)

We'll begin the event in original Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer. To join, start the in-game Party Mode using the cellphone. Make sure that your in-game Party Mode team size is at least two people. Once ready, head to the chat to find out the mode we're beginning with, and type your Gamertag into the chat. Another way is just to send over a friend request to the Gamertags/Online IDs above. We'll do our best to get you in for a few rounds. More info on using Party Mode is listed below.

Hit up the chatbox during the event or just post your Gamertag/Online ID in the Comments section below.

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 a mode to find us in-game.


Participating Gamertags/Online IDs for the event will be:

  • MaxPayneDev1 (PC)
  • MaxPayneDev2 (Xbox 360)
  • MaxPayneDev3 (PSN)
  • MaxPayneDev4 (Xbox 360)

Enter Max Payne 3 multiplayer and select the 'Social Club Multiplayer Event' playlist.

And if you want even more chances to play with us, follow us on our Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Steam (for PC) pages to get the word when we're starting up an impromptu multiplayer session, just like these...

    Surely in GTA 5 we will be able to put people in the trunk of your car,this alone would provide endless hours of gameplay

        I have been interested in public Last Man or Last Team Standing matches for a while now. Please tell me that will be a selectable game option from the playlists.

              but it would be better opening event, select the type of game and not be forced to play always in survival as was often the case. thanks anyway

                @bigboss2050tm Thanks for the feedback. To change things up a little, we decided to focus on some of the modes we don't usually play so often, but we're always keen to hear what you guys wanna play so keep letting us know, cheers

              The game kept freezing on me! What the heck?? Also is anyone having problems with arcade mode score attack? I beat level 1 and it said i got platinum, now it shows the level is not completed...seriously??? I beat level 2 and the same thing......Rockstar needs and update or something, I emailed support and the guy told it is my router? For real?
              • BaronSamedi911on August 31 2012, 12:55amReplyFlag
                @Jbauer1978 Yeah i don't think the support are actual R* devs
              • Jbauer1978on August 31 2012, 1:02amReplyFlag
                @BaronSamedi911 Its horrible! I just played Score attack and got a gold, but on the right, it shows rank none, what the hell! I played this level twice and it doesnt show complete! You have problems like that?
              • BaronSamedi911on August 31 2012, 4:37amReplyFlag
                @Jbauer1978 For my part its a bug with the dlc's weapons , you can clearly see on the weapon panel that you can unlock the gold attachment for the G9 grenade launcher , the LAW rocket launcher ,and the Hammerhead auto-shotgun after you reached level 10 but it won't work and it's really annoying as i tried everything ! (not talking about the chrome plating)

                R* told me to contact the Support team and just got a reply from them telling me it doesn't exist for the dlc weapons, but one of my friend has unlock it for his G9 (find the error) either there replying without reading or can't fix the problem !

                Next time i'll think twice before before buying any further dlc

                  Well, we know that neither Kate nor Roman can make an appearance in V.
                  Or Luis or Niko for that matter.

                  Still on topic.

                    Thanks for the awesome event R* ;) There was a cheater in 2 first matches but than GwRockstar4 listened to us and organized the rest of the event in Ranked Matches where they cant cheat. One thing I didnt like was that he spend almost whole TLaD time in private games by Party Mode with just 10 players when everyone else was waiting 50 mins to finally be able to join for 2 Races. I have recorded some games and will probably upload to YouTube, where can I send you link so you can watch and maybe put it into recap ?

                    @R* Hello Rockstar, How I can unlock the Silver camo for the weapons of Max Payne 3? Says that can be unlocked by the Social Club, but as you can see, I am already a member of the Social Club.

                      @Josemanzur We'll be revealing how to unlock Chrome Tints on weapons very soon - stay tuned
