Max Payne 3 DLC plans announced; first add-on content in June

TVGB: "Rockstar's just announced its plans for Max Payne 3 DLC.

All PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are in for new multiplayer maps, modes, bursts, items, playable characters, challenges "and more" over the months following the game's release, with the first pack of content arriving in June." (Max Payne 3 , PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I normally don't like DLC.

But if it as anywhere as good as Undead Nightmare or Episodes from Liberty City, then it will be a definite purchase.

Rockstar is one of the few that make DLC worth while!

"Furthermore, a DLC Pass can be pre-ordered starting today. What will it give you? Why, access to all future DLC, of course. The Pass goes for 2400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE and $29.99 on PlayStation Network and PC; more than a 35% discount, Rockstar points out.

Fancy that.

And here’s what to expect going forward:

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"

So I'm paying $89.99 to get the FULL Max Payne 3 experience? Sorry Rockstar, but no, just no. I'm switching my pre-order to Sleeping Dogs.

lol sleeping dogs...

Max Payne has always been about SP. This is the only Max Payne with MP and all the DLC is MP related. You're not paying $89.99 for the Full Max Payne 3 experience. You're paying $30 for FIVE map packs, a co-op pack and a new game mode.

Sleeping dogs? comparing a canceled game to Max payne?? Nobody's forcing you to buy the DLC. You should be thankful they added MP multiplayer that they actually obviously worked hard on to add replay value and not just to attract the COD crowd.

Sometimes I question your logic, LOGICOWNS...

@xPhearR3dx Max Payne 2 had Multiplayer too.

"Sleeping dogs? comparing a canceled game to Max payne??"

I'm not "comparing" anything. SD just happens to be another game that I would like to have. One that doesn't have a craploads of DLC on schedule.

"Nobody's forcing you to buy the DLC."

It's about PRINCIPLE. It's about not supporting devs who withhold the complete experience of the game to charge extra for features. This games been in development for half a decade. All this DLC could have been on disc for free.

Undead Nightmare was different. It came MONTHS after RDR and provided a whole new campaign (despite only being a few hours long). For Max Payne 3, all we are getting are maps!
ReservoirDog316  +   1127d ago
Well, multiplayer dlc is pretty reasonable. We're in the age of dlc and you gotta expect that. It's not like it's stuff intentionally cut from the story. It's multiplayer.

Your argument towards Max Payne 3 dlc could apply to 99% of games released this gen besides Wii games. I'm sure Sleeping Dogs also has dlc too.
LOGICWINS  +   1127d ago
Of course Sleeping Dogs has DLC, but not SEVEN DLC packs announced before the game is even out! Thats a slap in the face. By releasing five different maps, your splitting the online community.
ginsunuva  +   1127d ago
Awesome! We can pre-order DLC PASSES now?!
RyuX19  +   1127d ago
I think the only difference between this DLC and Red Dead or GTAIV's DLC is that they announced it early.

If they didn't announce it early then you wouldn't be complaining.

These DLC packs aren't coming out for sometime. For all we know maybe they aren't even finished yet and they are releasing it a bit after their deadline.

The only thing that I see that is disappointing is that the Co-op Missions are DLC. That should be in the game.

@Apocwhen

Max Payne 2 did not have multiplayer. Maybe someone released a mod, but the game did not launch with any online multiplayer.
mafiahajeri  +   1127d ago
They even give DLC for free. Undead Nightmare is the best DLC Ive ever bought and it was cheap too. Rockstar are my favourite Devs for sure...
ape007  +   1127d ago
this game is gonna be an awesome, infinitely fun shooting heaven
Mythicninja  +   1127d ago
Game of the year / ultimate edition 2-3 years from now it is!
LOGICWINS  +   1127d ago
Nah. By the time the GOTY edition for this comes out, I'll be knee deep into GTA5's multiplayer. I'll just get this used for $20 towards the end of the year to play the SP.
deletingthis34675334  +   1127d ago
Yeah, I would rather download free mods for PC instead. Suck on this one Rockstar.
BeaArthur  +   1127d ago
I never buy online passes because I'm never sure how long I'm going to play a game for. Maybe I get bored with the MP after 2 months and then all that money goes to waste.
SageHonor  +   1127d ago
I'm more excited for the SP. At least it doesnt look like they're cutting out SP content.
Rhezin  +   1127d ago
wow, retarded to release DLC so close to game's release. Should be on the disc.
ThichQuangDuck  +   1127d ago
I am so angry that they made Max Payne 3 the game I have myself not played, thus do not know what is available on disc is worth 60$. They should put whatever they ever come out with to prolong the game experience out for free. GRRRR I AM ANGRY THIS USED TO BE CALLED UNLOCKABLES GRRRR
Rampaged Death  +   1127d ago
I doubt I'll be doing this unless the multiplayer is outstanding.
ThichQuangDuck  +   1127d ago
Thus your going to base the decision of if you buy the DLC on whether you enjoy the multiplayer. Why not riot at the fact that they are prolonging the experience or call the game not a complete package since this obviously could of been on disc. Thus you are judging whether what is on disc is worth 60$ then choosing to continue the experience if the multiplayer is good. Why are you so logical on N4G?
Rampaged Death  +   1127d ago
Someone has to be.
chaldo  +   1127d ago
No one is forcing you to buy the dang map packs.

At least they are not doing it for SP so we know we know they didn't cut out anything from the game to make it a DLC.

Another positive thing about this is that some Rockstar Representative on the comments section said that there are plans on free DLC for this game.
ThichQuangDuck  +   1127d ago
@Chaldo

I think you misunderstood my comment unless you are agreeing with me. I hope there is single player dlc to continue the game, would be harder to do something out of the universe like liberty city stories or undead nightmare,but would love to see something like that with max payne. Cross fingers for some kind of matrix spoof with that bullet time
Kyosukedanteyui  +   1127d ago
DLC pisses me off.
FarCryLover182  +   1127d ago
uhhh, this is certainly disappointing.
omi25p  +   1127d ago
a map pack is disappointing?
MasterD919  +   1127d ago
The multiplayer mode doesn't look that appealing to me. Red Dead did multiplayer well though so I am inclined to at least try Max Payne's multiplayer out before swearing it off.

I think they are getting ahead of themselves with all of this DLC being announced though.
