Rockstar Games has confirmed that a brand new downloadable content pack will be released this fall for Max Payne 3, called Hostage Negotiation, which brings four new maps as well as new items, weapons, and a fresh faction.
Max Payne 3 came out at the beginning of summer and delivered a pretty decent third-person shooter experience starring everyone’s favorite grizzled ex-NYPD detective. While the single-player story left people with mixed feelings, the online mode is still quite popular thanks to the dedication of developer Rockstar.
The studio has now confirmed that yet another add-on
is coming for the online mode, in the form of the Hostage Negotiation DLC, which includes four new maps, plus new items, weapons, and an enemy faction called the Filhos De Ogum.
Check out the full details about the maps, weapons, and items 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.
Meanwhile, 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 Hostage Negotiation Pack will also include two new weapons: 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.
The Hostage Negotiation pack for Max Payne 3 will be released later this fall onto the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 for $9.99/€9.99/800 MS Points. Those who’ve got the Rockstar Pass, however, will get it for free.
The studio has also confirmed that more details will soon be offered in regard to the other planned DLC for Max Payne 3. As a token of appreciation, all Rockstar Social Club members will be able to redeem an all-new chrome weapons bonus in the near future for free.
