Rockstar has given us a heads up outlining their post-release content plans for the Max Payne 3
multiplayer component of their game, including an annual pass option to buy into all the DLC plans early and at a discounted rate.
The Rockstar Pass grants you access to all upcoming Max Payne 3 DLC and will be available for 2400 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE), or $29.99 (PlayStation Network and PC) – over a 35% discount compared to purchasing the content individually. Once purchased, the Rockstar Pass enables gamers to download all DLC releasing through the end of 2012 via the in-game store as soon as it is made available on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network, or PC.
The first content pack to land after the game's release is the "Local Justic Map Pack", coming this June, which features the "Police Precinct map for Gang Wars, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Payne Killer multiplayer modes", alongside two additional maps for Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Payne Killer as well as the usual multiplayer challenges, avatar awards and so on.
The rest of the schedule looks like this:
- Disorganized Crime Map Pack
- Deathmatch Made In Heaven Mode Pack
- Hostage Negotiation Map Pack
- New York Minute Co-Op Pack
- Painful Memories Map Pack
- Trickle Down Economics Map Pack
