Rockstar Games Releases Multiplayer Community Calendar

Rockstar Games Releases Multiplayer Community Calendar

Rockstar Games made its online multiplayer debut with Grand Theft Auto IV, and the studio has never shied away from giving their fans an engaging social experience. The Rockstar Games Social Club defines this experience, as players can compare completion stats, join multiplayer events, and get updates straight from the devs. In keeping with their tradition, Rockstar Games has revealed the official events calendar for October through December of this year.

The multiplayer events will be loaded with giveaways, extra XP and offers great opportunities to play with Rockstar team members. Matches are also live-streamed on the Social Club. Triple XP will also be active on both Xbox 360 and PS3 during all Red Dead Redemption events, regardless of event platform. Check out the calendar and full event descriptions below:
