At this point in time in the narrative of Max Payne 3, much justice has been brought to the streets of Sao Paulo. Earlier this week, Rockstar announced that further justice would be brought on July 3 when the game’s Local Justice downloadable content arrives on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace and then again on July 17 when it comes to PC. In this latest pack, three new maps make their debut alongside a new weapon, item, multiplayer faction, and a slew of achievements and trophies.
With Local Justice, players will be able to extend their fight into the confines of the 55th Battallion HQ, Imperial Palace, and the Departure Lounge. While the first of these maps is playable in all modes, the latter two can only be contested within the game’s deathmatch, team deathmatch, and Payne Killer modes. This batch of downloadable content doesn’t stop at environmental variety, though, as it also adds an M4 assault rifle with heretofore unspecified attachments, a Light Fingers item that enhances the speed of looting, a new faction in the form of the Sao Paulo Police, and further avatar customization options.
Announced alongside the release date for Local Justice was that all preorder items and items made exclusive to certain retailers will also become available for download on July 3. This wave of content includes the Cemetery Map (160 Microsoft Points; $2), Silent Killer Loadout Pack (160 Microsoft Points; $2), Pill Bottle Item (80 Microsoft Points; $1), Deadly Force Burst (80 Microsoft Points; $1), and the Classic Max Payne Character (80 Microsoft Points; $1).
The first of seven planned add-on packs, Local Justice will launch for consoles on July 3 and for PC on July 17 at the temporary price of 480 Microsoft Points ($6). After a week has passed since the content’s launch, it will be raised to 640 Microsoft Points ($8). Alternatively, Local Justice and the rest of the game’s expansions can be purchased through the Rockstar Pass, a deal that grants access to all of the game’s downloadable content for 2400 Microsoft Points ($30).
