Rockstar Adding Cross-Game Clan Support
Rockstar Games recently released a list of new changes it’s planning to roll out for its Rockstar Social Club, the online web portal that serves as a sort of social networky Battle.net-style tracker for stats, friends, gaming events and the like. Among the new changes are support for clan-style groups called “crews.”
Today, Rockstar issued a press release to explain a little more about what crews are and how they work. Perhaps the biggest piece of info on that front is the fact that crews are, in fact, supported across multiple games — specifically, in the multiplayer of Max Payne 3 and Grand Theft Auto V.
You can actually start your crew right now if you head over to Rockstar’s Social Club site. Doing so can earn you special benefits, according to Rockstar’s press release:
Any Crew created between now until next week Tuesday May 15th will have the honorable distinction of being a FOUNDER CREW. Members of Founder Crews will have a special two-stripe designation on their in-game Crew tag to let everyone else online know of their O.G. veteran status. We’re also planning some other special benefits and perks for members of Founders Crews down the line so please stay tuned for updates and notifications to your Social Club profile.
There’s also a pretty extensive emblem creator option, allowing players to create the logo they’ll take into battle to identify their crews. You can build that online, too, and it’ll appear on your Social Club profile, as well as in-game in Max Payne 3 when it drops next week. Check out the images below.
