Einstein himself couldn’t keep up with the pricing levels of the individual Call of Duty Modern Ware 3 map packs (my brain already hurts thinking about Black Ops 2’s online monetisation efforts) and talk about online passes, paid subscriptions et. al comes with side effects such as nausea, boredom and in severe cases, death.
So let us all gather round the proverbial campfire to praise and worship Rockstar Games, publisher and developer of Max Payne 3, as their plan for the Max Payne 3 multiplayer DLC is sweeter than sugary, third person shooter pie.
Called the ‘Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass’, Rockstar’s plan is to have you pay a one time fee of £19.99 (that’s the PSN price, the Xbox 360 version will set you back by 2400 Microsoft points) and gets you almost £40 worth of maps. Rockstar are going to release 7 stonking great whoppers of Max Payne 3 multiplayer DLC between June and Autumn, which are as follows
- Local Justice Map Pack
- Disorganized Crime Map Pack
- Deathmatch Made In Heaven Mode Pack
- Hostage Negotiation Map Pack
- New York Minute Co-Op Pack
- Painful Memories Map Pack
- Trickle Down Economics Map Pack
The first of the Max Payne 3 DLC, the Local Justice Map Pack, 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 this is only part of it (Rockstar say that they’ll release more details soon, subscribe to our newsletter and we’ll keep you posted!).
Phew! All of this and the game isn’t even out yet!
The Max Payne 3 release date is May 15th, 2012, click here to pre-order Max Payne 3.
