Rockstar has raised the cap on its Social Club Crews from 300 to 1,000, allowing players the opportunity to recruit some fresh blood.
The developer also detailed the recently released Crew Head to Head playlist challenge feature. “To initiate a Crew Head to Head, you’ll need to create a Playlist that does not contain Vehicle Deathmatches, Survivals or any Jobs that require more than 2 teams,” Rockstar explains.
“Head to My Playlists in the Online menus and you will see the option to start a “Head to Head (BETA)” by clicking the right stick on your game controller. From the lobby screen you can go ahead and invite other players from your own Crew, Friend’s Crew or from Skill Matched Crews. You’ll need to have some cash in your wallet to set the wager – the minimum is $1000 – but the ultimate Crew bragging rights are worth much more.”
As well as this, Rockstar announced the first official Crew vs. Crew battle, which will be streamed live on its official Twitch and YouTube channels this Friday, February 7 at 2 p.m. ET. The battle will “pit two bloodthirsty Crews against each other over the course of a curated Playlist of Rockstar Verified and Rockstar Created Jobs”.
“We’ve already reached out to a few of the toughest Crews around (we’ll be confirming the first matchup sometime this week) and will be contacting others soon,” the developer stated.
Yesterday, Take-Two announced that it has shipped 32.5 million copies of Grand Theft Auto V to retailers since its launch in September last year.
