If you weren’t expecting this, I would like to welcome you back to the civilized world and I do hope your stay under a rock was a pleasant one.
Rockstar today announced plans for post-release downloadable content for Max Payne 3, the ever-stylish, noir-driven shoot-’em-up due on store shelves in mere weeks. Thus far the plans follow a recent trend: you can purchase installments of the DLC individually, or buy a “Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass” and have access to everything for what will total up to a discounted price.
As for the content of the DLC specifically, all of the pieces of content listed are map packs, save for one “co-op pack.”
Full press release after the jump.
Today Rockstar are happy to announce Max Payne 3 downloadable content plans with a full lineup of multiplayer content planned for release this summer and beyond, starting with the Local Justice Map Pack coming in June. Players will also be able to order the Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass to get all of the upcoming DLC at a special discounted rate, compared to purchasing each pack individually. Starting today, the Rockstar Pass can be pre-ordered for Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network from Best Buy or GameStop in the United States (or pre-ordered for PSN directly from the PlayStation Store).
The Rockstar Pass grants you access to all upcoming Max Payne 3 DLC and will be available for 2400 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE), or £19.99 (PlayStation Network and PC) – over a 35% discount compared to purchasing the content individually. Once purchased, the Rockstar Pass enables gamers to download all DLC releasing through the end of 2012 via the in-game store as soon as it is made available on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network, or PC.
The Local Justice Map Pack, coming in June, will include the Police Precinct map for Gang Wars, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Payne Killer multiplayer modes. The pack will also feature two additional maps for Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Payne Killer, new precinct-themed multiplayer avatar items, multiplayer challenges, and more.
