For those interested in playing against the developers, Rockstar also detailed how they can be found and in which game mode.


Enter multiplayer and select the Social Club Multiplayer Event playlist. We'll play a mix of Soft Lock and Free Aim so look for the names listed above.


When the first event starts up Thursday, enter Normal difficulty multiplayer. This places you into a public Free Roam lobby. You should be able to run into a Rockstar player this way, but if you want you can send a friend request to one of the above IDs. Their lists might be full as most services only allow a max of 100 friend requests. We recommend partying up and playing with other Social Club members until the point when you're able to join us.

Additionally, Rockstar will also be holding a sweepstakes where one lucky player per event will win a pair of custom controllers "or in the case of Max Payne 3 they'll have the option of emblazoning a Crew Emblem and Gamertag/ID on the prize controllers or PC mouse." There are also t-shirts and stickers, too.

Sweepstake winners will be randomly selected, so check your inbox over the next 3-4 days to see if you've one any of the prizes they're offering.

Any of you still playing these games' multiplayer? If so, now's your chance to level up! That triple XP won't last forever, y'know.
