Rockstar Games has released screens from the ‘Hostage Negotiation’ DLC, along with an apology for the delay in releasing the pack.
The content – coming “this fall” – will bring four new multiplayer maps, two new weapons, a new faction (Filhos De Ogum) and new items to Max Payne 3.
The pack will cost you – if you don’t have a Rackstar Pass – 800MS Points on Xbox LIVE or $9.99 on PlayStation Network and PC.
Rockstar: “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. 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.”
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.
