Max Payne 3 is easily one of the year's best and unsurprisingly, Rockstar has long-term plans to support this bad boy.
The developer has announced an official date for the first downloadable content pack: Local Justice will be available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on July 3, and on the PC on July 17.
This first batch of extra content features three new maps (55th Battalion HQ, Imperial Palace, and Departure Lounge), a new weapon (M4 assault rifle), a new item (Light Fingers for faster reloads), a new multiplayer faction (Sao Paulo Police), and additional trophies and achievements. This first piece of DLC was initially expected to arrive this month, so maybe you're a little irked at having to wait longer.
But in appreciation for your patience, the Justice Pack can be had for only $5.99 on the PlayStation Network or 480 Microsoft Points. However, this deal is only good for the first week; afterward, the Pack will go to its original retail price of $7.99 on PSN and 640 Microsoft Points. Also, Rockstar has revealed that all that pre-order and retailer-specific DLC (which is all part of the Rockstar Pass program, if you're interested) will be available to download on July as well.
But this is only the beginning. Rockstar has seven total pieces of DLC slated for Max Payne 3 : the Disorganized Crime map pack, the Deathmatch Mode in Heaven pack, the Hostage Negotiation map pack, and the New York Minute co-op pack are forthcoming this summer. And for the fall, we've got the Painful Memories map pack and the Trickle Down Economics map pack. …okay, I'll stop saying "map pack" now.
