Episodes from Liberty City Xbox 360 Official Social Club Multiplayer Event (September 30, 4-7 PM Eastern)

Posted on September 30 2010, 4:00pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The event has ended.  Thanks to everyone that joined in – whether playing, watching the live stream or participating in the chat.  We look forward to seeing all of you in future events, and look for our October-December calendar coming within the next week or so.

Join us today, Thursday September 30th from 4-7PM Eastern for an afternoon of Episodes from Liberty City on Xbox LIVE, the latest in our Social Club Multiplayer Events Series.

We'll be playing the many multiplayer modes of The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony – and keeping with the excitement of the events we'll be live streaming it all, hosting a chat and giving you the opportunity to win an Episodes from Liberty City prize pack at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page.  Alternatively, you can choose to just watch the stream below beginning at 4:00PM Eastern.

Here’s all the details you’ll need to participate.

We'll begin the event in Team Deathmatch in The Lost and Damned.  To join, start the in-game Party Mode using the in-game cellphone.  Make sure that your in-game Party Mode team size is at least two people for the first round of play.  Once ready, start up Team Deathmatch from Party Mode and you will be automatically placed in special lobbies together with Rockstar and other event participants.  More info on using Party Mode is listed below.

As the event progresses, we'll be playing more multiplayer modes in The Lost and Damned.  Later, we'll switch over to The Ballad of Gay Tony to even things out.  The chat is the place to be to during the event to find out which multiplayer mode is coming up next.

Hit up the chatbox during the event or just post your Xbox LIVE Gamertag in the Comments section below.

Participating Xbox LIVE Rockstar Games Gamertags for the event will be:

  • GwRockstar3
  • GwRockstar4
  • GwRockstar5
  • GwRockstar6

Only add one Gamertag to your friends list to play.

Episodes from Liberty City'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 Ranked > Team Deathmatch for this event.

Cant jump in and play?  You can still follow the event at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page.  As usual, we'll have a live streaming video broadcast of the in-game matches plus a chat box so you can discuss the stream with others. Look below for specific directions you can follow to get online, grab a partner, and jump into the fray.

We will be giving instructions and updates in the chat box as the afternoon rolls on.  See you there...

And look for the new October - December 2010 calendar of events to be announced very soon.

    Dear Rockstar,

    as one of your bests fans, experiemtnal GTA player since GTA 1, i saw the physics evolution on the GTA series. i like a lot the graphics in gta IV. Specifically, the bullets holes in 3D, on diferent materials, such metal, wood, glass, rock, etc. (this technology is used too in foot steps, holes in the ground, etc.)

    those impacts uses a advanced technology, of which I am really impressed, it creates the feeling that the bullet hole is in three dimensions.

    The problem is that you didnt intoduced this technoloy in Red Dead Redemption. My question is : will you conserve this graphics advance on the next gen GTA's ? or are you going to go back to the simple technology of 2D bullet hole, used by the rest of games ?

    Please take time to see what im talking about in a picture made by myself :


    thank you for your time. im going to play RDR now : )

                Written in French, because I'll end up with an almond to massacre your language!

                Comme d'habitude, cette soirée fut vraiment passionnante, que ce soit à regarder le Live Stream qui nous montrait en continu la merveilleuse façon de jouer de GwRockstar3 ( Mr. Fail XD Non sérieusement, j'ai adoré! ), ou que ce soit sur la Chat Box avec "Mr." SocialClub, le "Feeling Robot"(qui aime le gâteau au chocolat apparemment!).
                Parler avec vous est toujours un bonheur! À mon avis ça ne sert à rien de dire ce que vous savez déjà, mais vous êtes les meilleurs les gars! En plus de développer meilleurs jeux du monde (GTAs, RDR, etc), vous restez constamment en contact avec vos fan (Concours vidéos, Soirée multi joueurs, "mini" soirée multijoueur via Twitter ou Facebook, le SocialClub, ETC...) !!! Et ça franchement, c'est super. Je connai aucun autre developpeur qui vous arrivent ne ceresse qu'à la cheville! Serieusement! Je suis vraiment dégouté de ne pas savoir correctement parler Anglais, si ça avais été le cas, je pense que en fin de compte vous en auriez eu marre de moi tellement que je parle!

                Bon eh bien la soirée est terminée (1:00 am en France) et je vais bientôt aller me coucher. J'attend avec impatience le nouveaux planning des soirée multijoueur! I LOVE YOU ROCKSTAR!

                PS: Sur les sites Francophone je suis le premier à écrire les news publiés sur le Newswire, sur GTAForums.fr (Studios 5107)
                Je vous ai toujours adoré depuis ViceCity (Oui je n'ai connu GTA qu'a partir de VC!), et je vous souhaite bonne continuation pour la suite!

                A+ ! (" C u " in french)

                                Hey R*!! Here's a partial game Idea (or if next GTA has Las Venturas type terrain)---Open desert free-roam multiplayer with hummers, APC's and the like! Anyway GTA IV and Red Dead both rule the world, so whatever & whenever! Thanks!

                                      Enjoying chatting in the chatterbox this event as well.

                                      I was going to play today but in the middle of an ISP change, and our old ISP cut out our old connection, so we're stuck with 1mb/s connection for free from the new ISP untill they activate our new 100mb/s one.

                                      So i'll just have to wait untill next event. :) But as i said, i'm enjoying chatting aswell.

                                          @JeffRivera See you in the chat today.

                                          @HGS360 Sure.

                                          @fruitstand Yep - we've got that covered for those that downloaded the DLC episodes separately.

                                          @darthjp86 As long as you're in Party Mode with someone, and are looking at the chat so you can see the modes we're announcing, you should be able to get into a few games.
