Setting Up Your Online Account
Before you can jump into all the fun and mayhem of GTA Online, you will need to create a Rockstar Games Social Club account. This is a free account that allows players to store their progress and access other features such as leader-boards, up-coming game events, fan artwork and competitions.
Creating the Social Club Account
To create an online account, simply visit the official RockStar website and follow the on-screen prompts. You’ll be asked to enter your email address and pick a unique username before setting up a password and confirming your identity via an emailed verification link.
Get Connected: Network & Profile Settings
Before you can play GTA Online with friends or join other games in progress, you’ll need to make sure your console is properly set up for online play. Every Xbox 360 user has two settings that control whether they can join public games or look for friend’s sessions: The Network Setting (which determines what kind of connections players have access to) and the Profile Setting (which controls who is allowed to join or add them as a friend). Allow both of these settings to be visible when navigating online menus or when people search for you. Additionally, make sure “Invites” are enabled so people can get in touch with you easier.
