The CREWS page also contains info on the in-game benefits Crew members get in online Multiplayer. You’ll receive an XP boost whenever you fight as part of a Crew or battle against rival Crews and their members online. This means you’ll effectively unlock bigger and better weapons more quickly than if you’re flying solo. And because this feature is linked through the Social Club, you can represent your Crew across PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Create an original battle crest to be displayed on your Crew’s online Multiplayer avatars by crafting a unique emblem with this new and robust customization toolkit. The Emblem Editor is packed with thousands of shapes, colors and icons and tools to create limitless possibilities to properly represent your squad and to intimidate, psyche out or stupefy the competition.
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. Rockstar are 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.
The time is now – head to the Social Club, and Crew up: http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crews. Drop a shout in comments to let us and others know what Crew you’ve joined or created.
