Max Payne 3 is set to receive a new DLC pack over the next few months, adding four new multiplayer maps, as well as additional weapons and items.
The Hostage Negotiation Map Pack is due in northern autumn - which we're in, obviously - and will go for $10 on PC and PlayStation 3 or 800 MS Points on Xbox 360. It's included in the Rockstar Pass though, so subscribers will grab it at no additional cost.
The pack has been expected for some time and Rockstar issued an apology over its delay.
"Our apologies to Max Payne fans who've been waiting for this one and the other upcoming packs - we're working hard to bring you this and all the other DLC and should have a release date to announce for this next pack very soon," the company said.
"As a special thank you to all Max Payne 3 multiplayers for your support and patience, look for the release of an all-new chrome weapons bonus, which will be redeemable by all Social Club members free of charge. We'll have more info when the unlock becomes active later this week."
As for what the pack contains, check out the details and some screenshots below:
- The Club Moderno and Estádio Do Galatians maps are being designed to deliver intense nightclub and stadium shootouts reminiscent of Max's earlier dust-ups with some of São Paulo's most dangerous elements like the Comando Sombra and the Crachá Preto.
- The O Palácio Strip Club and Favela Heights maps introduce to multiplayer all new, highly detailed favela territories from Max's descent into the gang-infested neighborhoods of the city.
- The M24 Sniper Rifle and the IA2 Assault Rifle, the new Explosive Burst for explosive booby traps, the Bomb Suit item to protect against explosive damage and the Intimidation Mask item to cause slower reload times for your enemies.
