In the works since November of last year, Rockstar has finally launched the friend and message wall portion of Rockstar Games Social Club.

Announcing the launch of the Rockstar Friends System and Message Wall – brand new features exclusively for Rockstar Games Social Club members to come together, interact, and talk trash - regardless of the platform they enjoy our titles on.

The Rockstar Friends System now allows Social Club members to create a custom Friends list based on either:

* Friends lists taken directly from platforms you have linked to the Social Club.
* Your specific Social Club nicknames and/or console identifiers (such as a Gamertag).

Linked Rockstar Friends can then interact via The Message Wall, Social Club’s unique verbal and visual means of mouthing off to your Friends.  Communicate, decorate and/or desecrate each other’s Walls at will.  Each message you send is accompanied by a sticker “envelope” of your choosing that gets posted to your Friend’s wall.  Pick from our collection of hundreds of stickers for the right grafitti graphic to match the tone of your note.

So link up with your Chinatown Wars DS-playing friend, your Midnight Club LA PS3-playing friend, and your Grand Theft Auto IV Xbox 360-playing friend – drop a steaming one on each of their walls and tell them how much they suck.  It’s social networking - the Rockstar way!

Rockstar has silently updated the pages for the two features that have been taunted since the revamp, Message Wall and Friends system. The pages reveal more details on what we can expect the features to offer. They also reveal that both features will launch before the end of this month.

Friends System:

The Rockstar Games Social Club has always been about bringing players together regardless of the platform that they choose to enjoy our titles on. The Rockstar Friend System will allow each Social Club member to create a custom Friends list based on either:

  • Friends lists taken directly from platforms you have linked to the Social Club.

  • Your specific Social Club nicknames and/or console identifiers (like a Gamertag).

Once you have created your Friends list, you can compare all your games stats with one another and use the Message Wall to communicate and talk trash. Look for even more Friends functionality to be rolled out regularly in the future. The Friends System is expected to be launched in April 2009. Stay tuned for launch announcement – make sure you’re signed up for the Rockstar mailing list.

Message Wall:

Announcing Rockstar Games Social Club’s unique verbal and visual means of mouthing off to your Friends – including a direct message system and customizable personal graffiti wall. Communicate, talk trash with your Friends, and decorate and/or desecrate each other’s Walls at will.

The Message Wall is expected to be rolled out in tandem with the new Friends Service in April 2009. Stay tuned for launch announcement – make sure you’re signed up for the Rockstar mailing list.

Today, Rockstar has revamped Social Club to version 1.1. However, this update seems like a 2.0 update due to the many changes that Rockstar has made:

  • New section just for games
  • The news now has it's own section
  • You can now pick a nickname for use on Social Club
  • A friends list is coming soon where you can message your other friends
  • Message Wall is coming soon. We're not quite sure what the message wall will be. Perhaps a forum for fans to talk to eachother?
  • There is now a platform chooser under the games section when you check your stats, and;
  • Perhaps the most significant change is the site has been redeisgned, and is no-longer based entirely as an animated Flash website, which does make it significantly faster and easier to navigate around

There are a couple of things that people may not like, one the fact that they will have to relink their XBL/PSN accounts to Social Club, which really isn't a hard thing to do at all and secondly, anyone that was going to use ZiT and LAFM will have to wait untill the features are relaunched. Overall, Social Club seems to be shaping up to be a...social club!

Millionaires ClubA new feature for the Grand Theft Auto IV section in the Rockstar Social Club has been released today, it is all about celebrating those wealthy seven–figure Grand Theft Auto IV players.

The wealth of a member us decided by the single-player missions completion, won races, side-missions and "dropped" money you've picked up on the streets. The Millionaires Club has lanuched, so be sure to login to your account and check it out, perhaps you are one of them...?

Also Rockstar has let word of a new attraction/feature soon to be available in the Social Club, entitled "VIRAL INFECTION". It has something to do with zombies and "how far the infection has spread". Nothing more is known, however given the statement from Rockstar and the fact it is relation to zombies, our money is on it being a calculation of how many GTA IV players have been turned into zombies (click for more info on zombies and GTA IV)...

Rockstar has just launched pre-registration for Social Club. If your not sure what Social Club is, Social Club is a new service from Rockstar that will be included in the upcoming Grand Theft Auto IV and Midnight Club: Los Angeles. Social Club will provide leader boards, exclusive contests, etc. According to the site, a card game called "Beat It" will be coming soon to the club. Also, if you sign up before the release of Grand Theft Auto IV, you will be entered to win a portrait of you drawn by the art team at Rockstar. If you want to sign up, the link is below.

Pre-Registration: Social Club

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.

Rockstar Games have updated there Social Club page with a notice saying 'Pre-Registration Begins 4.17.08'. SC was originally going to be open to the public today but instead the flash front page came up with that.

If you don't know what Rockstar Games Social Club is, here are a few snippets of what going to be in-store for us.

    • 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.

But that's not all that will be added, in the future there will be more added by Rockstar to cover other games respectively. Our guess is Midnight Club: LA will be the next to use the site along with some features coving it.
