Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition Social Club Multiplayer Event on PSN & XBL this Thursday September 27, 11AM-2PM Eastern

Posted on September 26 2012, 10:10am | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Less than one week after duking it out in the São Paulo favelas and Hoboken rooftops of Max Payne 3, our live-streaming Social Club Multiplayer Events series is heading back to Liberty City for a Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition session on both PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE.

We'll kick it off on Thursday, September 27 at 11am EST/4pm BST in GTAIV and will move on to both Episodes from Liberty City, giving everyone a chance to take part regardless of which copy of the game they own. To keep updated on which game modes our squad of Rockstar Games staff players are in, simply follow the live chat over at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page, where we'll also have the customary double live-stream of all the action along with a sweepstakes to win one of five GTAIV prize packs that include the Liberty City license plate, t-shirt and stickers.

Here are the dev accounts that will be taking part:

  • PlayRockstar (PSN)
  • PlayRockstar11 (PSN)
  • GwRockstar2 (Xbox LIVE)
  • GwRockstar3 (Xbox LIVE & streamed on our Twitch TV channel)

Only add one PlayStation Network ID/Gamertag to your friends list to play. We will clear each account's friend list at the start of the event and accept as many invites as we can. Please bear in mind that spamming the chat room asking for a game invite is a good way to not receive one.

Where's Rockstar? Pay attention to the live chat on the Social Club Multiplayer Events page. We'll announce where we're at in there. We'll begin in Grand Theft Auto IV in GTA Race, and later progress to the two episodes. Use the in-game cellphone to select the mode we're playing during the event.

For team-based modes such as Team Deathmatch, gather your friends using Party Mode. You can also hit up the chat during the event or just post your PSN ID/Gamertag in the Comments section below.

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. Next, open up your phone again and select the Friends option to invite at least one person into your Party Mode game.
  3. Once your team is ready to roll, open up the in-game phone again and select Games > GTA Race.

    It will be nice to have the ability to attend such things once the game works. Sent you guys a support request. I installed EFLC after buying through Steam, but when I click play on the game and on the Social Club Window, the window disappears and nothing happens. Nothing

      Recently I bought GTA Episodes from Liberty City through Steam. It appears, that when I try to log in Windows Live the CD key that steam gave me is illegal. What should I do in order to play online? Do I need to buy GTA IV as well ?!

            While I'm appreciative that I won one of the prize packs from Rockstar recently, I have to say I'm really disappointed in what was in my/the prize pack(s), a shirt not related to any specific Rockstar game, a GTA 4 license plate, and some stickers. I'm a grown man so the disappointment is only minor for me. But, If I were a kid or barely an adult the lack of anything nice in the pack would be very disappointing. You won a prize pack, you should get the best content the game you won it for has to offer! It's a once in a lifetime even, most likely. Any decent game prize pack should at least have a free copy of the game, a limited edition one if the game has/had one or a complete edition with all the content, some apparel from the actual game, a poster, and the most expensive bundle pack available for sale for that particular game. Again, thanks for the pack, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, I just think when you win a sweepstakes you should feel like you hit a mini-lottery. lol It's very unlikely you'll ever win again. I feel that's especially true for any kid's or young adults who win one of your sweepstakes.

              @MicBlaze We're sorry if you feel disappointed in the Rockstar Prize Pack you won in the sweepstakes, but we do try to be straightforward about what's in them. Please make sure to check out the official rules and also the description in the announcement post which describes what we're giving away. We never give away free copies of our games, but regularly award limited-edition gear and collectibles. Thank you.

            It was really awesome to play with you guys at Rockstar! You guys host more fun and varied games than most other people that host matches in GTA IV. Hope to play with you guys in Max Payne 3 or Red Dead. Thanks again Rockstar and to the people that took time out of their day to play with fans.

              @zedder13 Have you checked your privacy settings on Social Club? That might be part of the cause.

              This is my first time attempt in GTA IV events,.

              Having many great moment with GwRockstar3,like GTA Race/Race,Deathmatch and free mode...

              Very Enjoy the GTA race/race,although every time crash,car explosion,get killed....
              But I still love it,I don't remember too clear,I have play about 4 GTA Race with the GwRockstar3.
              (1 time in TLAD,3 times in TBOGT.)

              TLAD can't finish in time,I place nearly last as my car have turn 90 degrees and can't trun back-_-

              And I haven't play TBOGT for a while,I forget how to use the fuel(That time should be using the tank to fight):o.
              But I still have a good result in some of the GTA Race,my best Rank of the GTA Race is 3rd in this events(If i remember correctly)

              I remember some funny moments when I competed the GTA Race and watch back the twitch screen,GwRockstar3 is fighting with other(kill the man who try to use the stair to go up to the ground-_-)

              Happy to play with Rockstar and other players,Hope next time I will have a chance to join some multiplayer events again!

                  Awesome Event Rockstar, ThankYou! - It was great to host a few games for PlayRockstar [PS3] in TBOGT. Was such a laugh when we were in GTA Races, I rammed him off the road, Hopefully you have some screens of it =) - And I hope I get mentioned in the Re-Cap Article =D - Do you know when that will be out? - Cheers
