Rockstar Games has relaunched its Social Club website with new features and integration of social media. The relaunch includes personal Social Club user profiles, Friends system with direct/private messaging, the ability to link your Facebook/Twitter accounts, Newswire activity, reply notifications, and more.

Additionally, the launch of Social Club CREWS allows players to register, create, and recruit Max Payne 3 Multiplayer crews before the launch of the game next week.

Social Club Profile Pages

SOCIAL CLUB PROFILE PAGE – Personalize Social Club profile pages, complete with status updates, a display of recent stats and accomplishments across linked Social Club enabled games, and proper Friend linking with a Wall that updates Social Club activity and lets members cheer and jeer their friends at Social Club, as well as easily plan multiplayer sessions.

USER ACTIVITY FEEDS – Keep tabs on the latest accomplishments via a real-time activity feed. With the release of Max Payne 3, Friends will know each time a Trophy/Achievement has been unlocked, throw down the gauntlet for a multiplayer session, or see when a friend has added a new soldier to their CREW (Wednesday).

ADD FRIENDS – Search and add Friends that are current Social Club members and also find, import and invite contacts from Facebook, Twitter and gaming accounts.

LINK IN & LOG IN WITH FACEBOOK OR TWITTER – Link in and display profiles from Facebook and Twitter (as well as PlayStation Network IDs and XBL Gamertags) direct to personal pages and starting Wednesday, Social Club activity will post directly to those networks. For new members, we’ve enabled Social Club account creation (and sign-in for existing members) using Facebook or Twitter username and passwords.
