Max Payne 3 ‘Deathmatch Made in Heaven’ DLC Modes Revealed


Rockstar games have unveiled the four new modes that will feature in the Deathmatch Made in Heaven DLC for Max Payne 3.

The four new modes that the DLC adds include:

  • Dead Men Walking – Dead Men Walking brings explosive co-op action to Max Payne 3 Multiplayer in a mode that pits you and a comrade against endless waves of enemies armed to the teeth and determined to end you. The longer you can survive the bloodthirsty masses, the more handsome your score – with various modifiers to aid your assault, rewarding you for superb Payne style combat and tactics. Using Bullet Time and Shootdodge, registering headshots, and dropping a target without taking damage will all earn you big bonuses and bragging rights. As you fight each wave, you’ll accumulate Adrenaline for wave-changing Bullet Time Bursts and “Grit” that’s used to unlock pain killers, weapons, attachments, new areas of the map and more. As you and your teammate advance, you’ll encounter more enemies armed with better weapons, more accurate projectiles, tougher armor, smarter battle tactics and challenging Boss waves. The keys to success are teamwork, strategy and of course skill.
  • Run & Stun – This all-new game mode transforms one random player into the villainous Saci, Captain Baseball Bat Boy’s nemesis, and pits him against all of the other players on the map who must team up in order to survive his onslaught. Armed with a Stun Gun, a few Flash Bangs and a weighty melee strike, the seemingly unstoppable Saci adds players to his side with each kill, turning them to his cause. The round ends when the timer runs out or one player is left unturned. Once the person playing Saci adds your name to their roster, you will respawn wearing the character’s mask, letting others know where your loyalties lie. To add more followers to Saci’s cause, use the stun and melee approach.
  • Marked Man – The new Marked Man Multiplayer mode puts a spin on traditional Deathmatch and rewards you with more XP for taking advantage of Max Payne 3’s Vendetta system.  Players that succeed in the Marked Man game mode will earn five points for each Vendetta that they successfully complete and another five points for each Vendetta that they are able to walk away victoriously from.  To climb the leaderboards and earn the most XP, you must trigger and survive as many Vendettas as you possibly can. The fast-paced nature of Max Payne 3’s Multiplayer maps provides the perfect arena for you to rack up points, so move quickly and note your high value targets.
  • Time Attack – The Time Attack DLC mode takes all of the fast paced, every-man-for-himself action that you have come to expect from a Max Payne 3 Multiplayer Deathmatch and begs you to take it to the next level. Now when you log those incredible Kill Streaks, and rack up a massive number of kills within a short period of time you are rewarded with the points to match.The match starts like a traditional Deathmatch, rewarding you with one point for the first kill that you tally, but now a kill timer will appear next to your score illustrating how many points your next kill will be worth. Over time this kill clock will return to zero, so move quickly and register those victories.

The DLC comes tomorrow costing 800 Microsoft Points/£7.29 whilst European PlayStation 3 gamers will have to wait until January 30th in order to get the DLC. Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
