Max Payne 3 | Title Update out

A new title update for Max Payne 3 was released over the weekend [we missed it due to our excitement over the GTA V screens] and brings with it a “new multiplayer player card” and also enables Payne Thresholds which goes live across all three platforms following the release of the free Disorganized Crime Pack DLC.

The update includes a variety of fixes and adjustments:

  • The new Multiplayer Player Card, which allows you and your friends to track multiplayer stats including current amount of XP, total kills, favorite weapon and more.
  • New Automated cheat protection and lag protection measures.
  • Improvements to multiplayer load times
  • Players can now spawn with dual wield if they have two sidearms and no two-handed weapon equipped
  • Polish language support has been added
  • Party leader now has the option of taking entire party with them when they back out of a match
  • Weapon rank in the Arsenal is now visible on the left side of the screen, not just the right
  • The Crew menu is now available inside lobbies
  • XP gained for completing Grinds no longer contributes to rankings in Gang Wars matches
  • Improvements to the spectator camera in Gang Wars
  • Gang Wars wager system improved to better show betting results

Payne Thresholds is a new set of multiplayer challenges “designed to reward players with bonuses for accomplishing certain feats during the course of a multiplayer match.”

Each Payne Threshold has a Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum level, and once you cross each of the first three individual thresholds you’re rewarded with bonus XP, while achieving the Platinum level of any Payne Threshold unlocks a new custom title for your multiplayer character.

Bronze: 1,000 XP | Silver: 2,500 XP | Gold: 5,000 XP | Platinum: Custom Title
Plus, you’ll also be able to check your personal bests for any Payne Threshold against your friends, Crewmates and the rest of the world both in-game and via the Social Club. The first three Payne Thresholds, which will each be available as part of the new Title Update coming next week, are documented below:
Adrenaline Rush
Earn the most adrenaline in a game
Take the most damage without dying
Postmaster General
Most packages delivered in a Delivery or Grab game during Gang Wars
