GTAIV Social Club Multiplayer Event Including Double Live Stream and Prize Packs (January 25th, 11am-2pm EST)

Posted on January 22 2013, 12:48pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The multiplayer event has ended. Thanks to everyone that joined us. Get ready for our next Social Club multiplayer event happening Thursday Feb 7th. Check the Winter Calendar for info and stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the date.

This Friday January 25th, 11am-2pm EST / 4-7pm GMT, our latest live-streaming Social Club Multiplayer Event invades Liberty City for three hours of melees, mayhem, and mischief in Grand Theft Auto IV. Come look for our dev players in-game on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, or tune in to our double live-stream on the Social Club Multiplayer Events page. There you'll also find our Rockstar-hosted Social Club chat and the chance to win one of ten GTAV prize packs, each including the GTAV Logo Tee, GTAV Tee, and GTAV and Rockstar logo stickers, in our giveaway.

We'll play a mix of original GTAIV modes, as well as The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony multiplayer modes, and you don't need to own the Complete Edition to play in the event - you can join us whenever we're playing a mode that you have. Our devs will clear their friends lists beforehand, and you can enter the giveaway on this page under the Sweepstakes Entry tab.

Two of our devs will be streaming their GTAIV gameplay live on the Social Club Multiplayer Event page with a live chat, and a third video stream will run on our Rockstar Twitch page with a second hosted chatroom.


  • PlayRockstar11 (PSN)
  • GwRockstar3 (Xbox LIVE)
  • GwRockstar1 (PC & streamed on our Twitch TV channel)
  • PlayRockstar12 (PSN)

We'll accept as many invites as we can during the event, but we do recommend playing with Social Club members to make sure you get in on the action. Getting in a game with a dev is not a guarantee, but it is something we absolutely attempt to do for as many people as we can when we host a multiplayer event.

Want to know which multiplayer mode our devs are about to play? Pay attention to the live chat on the Social Club Multiplayer Event page. 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:

  1. In single player, open 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.

    Hay Rockstar, Why Can't You Transfer On Consoles Like Xbox One As Many Times As You Want Only Once For Other Characters, Plus Why Did You Stop Making Updates For Gta 5 Online Xbox 360 And Also Is There A Grand Theft Auto 6 Coming Out Soon?

    Is there going to be any events held for people in different parts of the world? With the time zones as they are people in Aus and NZ will have to get up between 3am-6am for this event. Don't get me wrong i'm still going to compete but tbh I don't think i'm at my full gaming potential at 5am. Would be nice if you guys would consider the thousands of fans in different parts of the globe.

              @theytookmyjob1 More Triple XP is coming up. As for Payne Thresholds, we'll let everyone know if we have any future updates. And we don't have plans to add more content for the game but we do want to thank you for all the support you've shown us. Cheers.

            When will triple XP be on RDR?
            • R* Yon March 12 2013, 11:03amReplyFlag
              @unevenwrench5939 Good question. We should have some more Triple XP coming up for both Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption sometime in the next several weeks. We'll be sure to announce when that happens.

            Rockstar, do these events benefit our GTA IV rank or is it just a game for fun? Many Thanks

              @Bluedios Unfortunately this isn't something that we are able to do. But we hope to see you in this Saturday's GTAIV event.

                R*, I was wondering what GTA games your devs play during these events... (I.e. Mafia work,
                club business, etc.)?
                • R* Yon February 14 2013, 11:34amReplyFlag
                  @killsport We usually play a mix of all the GTAIV multiplayer modes, including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Race, GTA Race, Mafiya Work, Team Mafiya Work, Cops 'n Crooks, Club Business, Lone Wolf Biker, Witness Protection, etc.
              • VictoryIIIon February 5 2013, 4:39amReplyFlag

                  @ rockstar if you can wait to release the game. Ok no problem but can you plz do a update for GTA TBoGT for the modders! I hate to play with modders, cheaters! plz, just a update plz?
                  • R* Yon February 4 2013, 11:41amReplyFlag
                    @SUDBond007 We recommend reporting cheaters directly to Microsoft as it is a violation of the Xbox Live terms of service. Do this directly through the Xbox Live interface by pressing the Guide button, selecting the Gamertag, and choosing to file a complaint. We also recommend blocking those players:

                    @ Thanks, but there are so many and you nee to file complaint with a lot of people before they do something.
                    Can you guys do the clothes from TLaD and/or GTA IV in GTA TBoGT plz and maiby some casr? As a DLC for free or 400 MP or more?

                    @PIMPAX I'm talking about Max Payne.

                    @PIMPAX Yes, we're going to have Triple XP this coming weekend beginning Thursday for both Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3.
