Rockstar has announced its downloadable content plans for Max Payne 3, as well as a new Rockstar DLC Pass.

New “multiplayer maps, modes, bursts, items, playable characters, challenges and more,” will be available to purchase in the coming months on PSN, XBL and PC.

“The story of Max Payne 3 begins in the single-player game and crosses over into the deepest multiplayer experience we’ve ever created,” said Rockstar founder, Sam Houser. “We intend to support the Max Payne community with new and innovative content well into the future.”

The first Max Payne 3 map pack called Local Justice arrives in June and features the Police Precinct map for Gang Wars, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Payne Killer multiplayer modes.

The pack will also feature two additional maps for each mode as well as new precinct-themed multiplayer avatar items, multiplayer challenges, and more.

Starting today, players can pre-order the Max Payne 3 Rockstar DLC Pass for Xbox Live and PSN from Best Buy and GameStop in the US and directly from PSN.

The Rockstar DLC Pass grants access to all upcoming Max Payne 3 DLC for 2400 MSP/$29.99 which is more than 35% off all DLC purchased individually. The Rockstar DLC Pass enables owners to download all DLC releasing through the end of 2012.
