What a lovely break yesterday was as America celebrated Mother’s Day and me, a Brit, took full advantage of it. Well, welcome back today where we can now celebrate the fact that shooting people in the face and serving justice is really awesome.

This hefty slice of justice and the epic gunfights are, of course, thanks to none other than one Max Payne, whose third video game outing, Max Payne 3, is released on Friday.

In this Max Payne 3 launch trailer, Max talks about the two kinds of people who inhabit the world, those who “build a future” and those who try and “rebuild the past”. He says that he has always hovered in the middle but now plans on fixing this in Max Payne 3, but that won’t stop him from relegating you from his social circle should you fall into the latter category.

Best stay out of his way should you cross paths with him then…

Max Payne 3 Multiplayer DLC Detailed, Priced Ridiculously Low

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

June 2012

  • Local Justice Map Pack

Summer 2012

  • Disorganized Crime Map Pack
  • Deathmatch Made In Heaven Mode Pack
  • Hostage Negotiation Map Pack
  • New York Minute Co-Op Pack

Fall 2012

  • 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.
