This Thursday, August 30th, we're turning the last Social Club Multiplayer Event[socialclub.rockstargames.com] of the summer calendar[www.rockstargames.com] (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[www.rockstargames.com] (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[www.rockstargames.com] 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[www.rockstargames.com] of the brand new FREE Disorganized Crime Pack[www.rockstargames.com], plus be sure to keep watch of the event leaderboards over at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page[socialclub.rockstargames.com].
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 inimitableHard8Times[socialclub.rockstargames.com]. You'll be able to catch the Rooftop action live-stream on our Twitch page[twitch.tv]. We'll also have a pair of Sweepstakes, with two opportunities to win one of ten total Rockstar Prize Packs with collectibles and gear.
The FREE Disorganized Crime Pack[www.rockstargames.com] for Max Payne 3[www.rockstargames.com] will be available for download tomorrow. In addition to several new modifiers for Score Attack Mode and the new Noir Mode which allows you to play Arcade Modes in B&W, this pack also features the Hoboken Rooftops Multiplayer Map, where you can battle it out amidst the ravaged remains of what was Max's New Jersey residence. Today, you can prepare by exploring a detailed preview tour of the Hoboken Rooftops map that highlights strategic points, by clicking on the image below.

Take aim through and around the water towers, chimneys, ventilation shafts, and satellite dishes to tally those head shots and get that rank up.
Coming next week on August 28th for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, the FREE Disorganized Crime Pack for Max Payne 3[www.rockstargames.com] features the Hoboken Rooftops multiplayer map, letting you battle it out throughout the remains of Max's dilapidated Hoboken apartment.
This pack also includes several new modifiers for Score Attack in Arcade Mode[www.rockstargames.com] like Explosive Rounds (bullets detonate on impact), Lone Wolf AI (much more aggressive enemies) and Headshots Only mode as well plus a new Noir Mode which lets you play through the game's singe-player in the signature black & white style of classic film noir.
Today, check out the first screens from the Disorganized Crime Pack and stay tuned for more details including a detailed layout of the Hoboken Rooftops map.
We'll also be giving away 5 Grand Prizes during this special Double XP Event, each containing a GeForce GTX 670 video card[www.zotacusa.com] as well as a Rockstar t-shirt, Max Payne 3 Bullet Keychain and a set of special Max Payne 3 and Rockstar stickers.
Each of these GeForce GTX 670s sports the following:
Support for Dual dual-link DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort
DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.2
PCI Express 3.0 Support
The event will also feature three live video streams to choose from (two on the Social Club Events page[socialclub.rockstargames.com] and one on TwitchTV[www.twitch.tv]), plus live chat and leaderboards to track the top players in real time.
