Rockstar Social Club Registration Opens Today

Published at 6:40 AM PST

After being delayed for two days, originally planned for opening on April the 15th, today Rockstar's Social Club will open it's doors for registrations. Be sure you register up for your chance to enter competitions and of course, extend your GTA IV gaming experience. With future games also using this Social Club, it's a registration you MUST have, there really is no reason not to register. Weather your purchasing GTA IV or not, there will be Midnight Club LA which will no doubt also make use of the Club.

It is unknown when today the Social Club will officially open, however we suspect before this-afternoon.

What is the Social Club? If you missed the news, here's some small snippets:

  • The LCPD Police Blotter will feature a map of Liberty City that tracks the criminal activity of the many players connected to the internet. It will feature information such as the more dangerous areas of town and which weapons are more common the others.

  • The Story Gang will be a leaderboard that will not only show who completed the main story arc of the game first, but also how long it took. People who become a member of this club will receive special online widgets and merit badges.

  • The 100% Club will be extremely popular as it will show who out of the millions of players will reach 100% completion first. The first 10 people to do so will be sent an ultra-rare commemorative 'key to the city' to mark their accomplishment! Later on it will rank members based on who will be able to get to 100% in the shortest amount of time.

  • The Hall of Fame will recognize those elite players who have reached the top of various different statistical leaderboards, and will also contain a personal awards display of awards earned in Social Club competitions and via reaching various in-game achievements.

  • The Liberty City Marathon will be a ranking of special physical milestones achieved in the game, from the number of miles walked, driven, or swam to the number of bullets fired and stunt-jumps jumped. Other events will be added as time goes on.
