Grand Theft Auto 4 Multiplayer on the PC

I purchased GTA4 for the PC when if first came out, I read that it had multiplayer but I wasn’t particuraly interested at the time. Well over the weekend I decided to give multiplayer a go and I couldn’t figure it out.

For some reason the guys over at Rockstar didn’t feel the need to include a multiplayer option in the menu but they did feel the need to confuse me with Rockstar Social Club and Games for Windows Live.

To play multiplayer GTA4 on the PC you must start the game normally and then start single player. Once single player finishes loading you must press the UP Arrow key to bring up your in game cell phone, from their you must navigate the cell phone menu to the multiplayer option. Once inside of the multiplayer browse screen you must select a game and load the content again.

What was rock star thinking?



“War, war never changes. The Romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into an economic superpower. But war never changes. In the 21st century war was still waged over the resources that could be acquired. Only this time the spoils of war were its weapons, petroleum and uranium.”
