GTA: Chinatown Wars Featured on Rockstar Games Social Club
Starting May 1st, Rockstar Games Social Club will be hosting GTA: Chinatown Wars week, and giving owners of the DS title a chance to grab a rare vehicle for in-game use. Obviously, this will only be available for a limited time, with the offer expiring at 11:59 PM May 7th.
What is this new vehicle, you may ask. Well, it’s the coveted ‘Bulletproof Hellenbach.’ Chinatown Wars has been all the rage for DS owners this year, and with the addition of a bulletproof vehicle, I feel certain that the pedestrian populations of those virtual streets are in dire peril.
Rockstar also rolled out a new lineup of downloadable papercraft models exclusively for Social Club members to print and assemble, and they’ve enhanced the popular ‘Rampage Tracker.’ I expect that if this type of promotion pans out, we’ll see a lot more online tie-ins for games, both handheld and console.
So, what do you need to do to grab your very own near-invincible set of wheels? All the detailed instructions can be found after the break.
Follow these instructions, and you’ll be rolling in your brand new bulletproof wheels in no time.
(1) Become a registered Social Club member before 11:59 PM ET on May 7th 2009 (Thursday).
(2) Link your Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Nintendo DS Friend Code to your Social Club account before 11:59 PM ET on May 7th 2009 (Thursday).
(3) Sync your stats anytime after your Friend Code is linked.
The car will then be available at the Auto Merchant in BOABO. It will be the last car on the dealer’s list but you can skip to it directly by hitting left on the d-pad. (Note that the Auto Merchant opens for business in one of the early missions, “The Wheelman.”)
