GTAIV + Episodes from Liberty City PC/PS3/360 Multiplayer Event Thursday November 29th (4-7pm EST)

Posted on November 29 2012, 4:00pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The event had ended. Thanks to everyone that joined in to watch, play, chat and to enter to win prizes.

Play Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer, enter to win cool prizes, watch Rockstar play the game and chat with other Social Club members Thursday November 29th from 4-7pm EST / 9pm-12am GMT. We'll be playing both GTAIV and Episodes from Liberty City on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, switching to The Lost and Damned for the middle hour and finishing with The Ballad of Gay Tony for the finale.

Five nifty prize packs will be given away. Each one includes a Rockstar Machine Tee, GTAIV license plate, a bonus Max Payne 3 t-shirt and a bunch of stickers. All you need to do to enter is give us some information so we know, should you win, where to send the package. All the details stay with us. We don't give them out to anyone that's going to spam you with emails or whatever.

If you want to go in fully prepped and ready to go, we recommend doing the following:

  • Head in-game before things begin Thursday to prepare your multiplayer avatar's look. Gotta look sharp for the video streams on the Social Club multiplayer event page and Twitch.
  • Be sure to hit up your friends ahead of time so you can get together in Party Mode to strategize for Team Deathmatch. Rallying points, places to avoid, body armor spots, etc.
  • Take a few practice runs at the tracks in GTA Race so you're solid on the shortcuts and weapon pickups.
  • Enter a few Deathmatch games to warm up on your shooting and aiming skills. Quick, efficient kills.
  • And most importantly, be sure you've got the discs nearby and the games and patches installed. Game installation is optional on 360.


  • GwRockstar3 (Xbox LIVE)
  • PlayRockstar (PSN)
  • GwRockstar1 (PC & streamed on our Twitch TV channel)
  • GwRockstar4 (Xbox LIVE)
  • GwRockstar2 (PC)

Only add one of our devs 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. We recommend playing with Social Club members, as getting in a game with a dev is not a guarantee. It is, though, something we attempt to do for everyone each time we host a multiplayer event.

Pay attention to the live chat on the Social Club multiplayer event 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 Lost and Damned in the second hour and The Ballad of Gay Tony in the final hour. 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:

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

        well... FINALLY got my video done from this event:

        I did something different this time... I decided to mix the multiplayer footage I got with ClipCapture and some Machinima starring Niko' Bellic! These MP videos tend to get large in-length and a little boring for some, so I thought I would throw in some extra "stuff!" Hope everyone enjoys :)

        Hey Rockstar, just want to report a hacker/modder who was using aimbot and other mods in a game of gta IV, the guys psn id is WicKeD_EaZy_ please do something about this guy R* because he just ruins my online experience with this great game.
        • R* Yon December 3 2012, 11:53amReplyFlag
          @BigBoyBoris Thanks for letting us know. Any players that have modified their hardware or software should be reported to Sony, so please be sure to do that here too:

          @ Hi i'm WicKeD_EaZy_. I'm sorry to hear that BigBoyBoris thinks i'm a moder/cheater. I've been playing Gta V for the last three years for, about 12 hours a day. If R* would like to play a friendly match against myself and a few friends, it would prove to them that i nor my friends cheat.

        Everytime I connect to a R* dev, I get the message "connection has been lost to one or more players". I 've no idea why, I have a pretty good internet connection so it shouldn't have problems connecting to a large number of people.

        I didn't get to make any videos, but here are a couple of screenshots from the very nice multiplayer session with Gwrockstar2 on the PC version...

        Will GTA V fix GTA multiplayer modders/hackers? Currently for your previous installment GTAIV/TLAD/TBOGT there are a lot of modding/hacking going around. Players using a freezing mod/hack to freeze other players consoles, (Xbox360 and PS3), even the PC version. Just recently a few days ago, I was playing multiplayer, I created a new game (in free mode) and waited for players to join, once the first person joined I killed him 3 times, then he froze my console. The freezing of consoles could and eventually lead and prevent the laser from working anymore.

        Will the new installment of GTA (GTA V) fix this freezing mod/hack?

        Thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a great day.

          @GTAGlitchSeeker Thanks for asking. As with all of our releases that have a multiplayer component, we're always working to improve anti-cheat technology to ensure a fair playing field for everyone involved. If we have any specific details to pass along regarding future titles, we'll do so here on our website.

          @ What about fixing GTA IV? I want to play online but the modders are annoying.
        • GTAGlitchSeekeron December 2 2012, 12:34pmReplyFlag
          @simsdaniel I understand your view, but it can only be fixed in new titles, because in involves coding into the actual game, to make it more stable and with out crashing, plus other mods, updating it won't help. Worst (Mods/Hacks) are the ones that will freeze your Consoles, or PC, I had/played GTA4 on all platforms (PC,Xbox360,PS3) and the problem is on all of them. If they decide to fix it by updating it would be a huge file update. The modding/Hacking-Players should be the ones to take that responsibility and stop what they are doing, which is wrong.

          Thanks for your time who ever read this forum. (people on forums and whoever)

          @GTAGlitchSeeker Around when Ballad of Gay Tony came out their were moders and they released a title update which somewhat fixed it for awhile and they fixed the parachute glitch which allowed you to keep going up.
