One of the best games of 2012, just got a little better. Today, Rockstar Games announced that the final downloadable content pack for Max Payne 3, the Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack. It is now available for download on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network, and PC.
The Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack brings new cooperative and competitive game modes to Max Payne 3’s multiplayer experience. The pack features a wealth of new weapons, items, bursts, grinds, new achievements and trophies.
Here are the description of some of the additions:
Run and Stun
One player starts as Saci, Captain Baseball Bat Boy’s nemesis. Saci is a fast, heavily armored character with unlimited stamina and equipped with a Stun Gun and Flash Bangs. Saci adds players to his side with each kill, effectively reducing the number of enemy players on the opposite team. The round ends when the timer runs out or all players are recruited to Saci’s team.
Dead Men Walking
A new cooperative take on Max Payne’s classic Dead Man Walking Mode. Players assume the role of Max and Passos to take on waves of increasingly smarter, tougher and better armed enemies. Throughout the match, players earn Grit – a currency used to unlock new areas of the map, pain killers, weapons and weapon attachments.
A new Deathmatch variant that rewards extra points for kills on the higher end of a timer. The timer starts with each kill, lasting 20 seconds. A kill within 2 seconds of the kill timer nets players the maximum score of 10 points. Every 2 seconds, the value of the next kill decreases by 1 point.
Marked Man is a new spin on traditional Deathmatch that rewards players with more XP for taking advantage of Max Payne 3’s Vendetta system. Players earn five points for each Vendetta that they successfully complete and five points for each Vendetta that they survive.
A new variant on Arcade Mode that test players’ quickness and skill with an array of new challenges, such as taking out all enemies within a level’s checkpoint with headshots only or explosive kills. Complete a level in Story Mode to unlock its respective Challenge Mode level.
The “Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack” is now available in most territories for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE and $9.99 on PC and PlayStation Network in North America. The pack will be available to European PlayStation 3 owners on January 30. Players who purchased the Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass can download the pack free of charge. The Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass is currently available for 2400 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE) or $29.99 on PSN.
