The studio has now revealed new information about the DLC, which it says will add four new multiplayer maps along with a range of new Items and weapons.
The The Club Moderno and Estádio Do Galatians maps will be familiar to those who played the single player campaign, taking place in the ritzy nightclub and empty soccer stadium respectively. O Palácio Strip Club and Favela Heights both take place in gang territory in the poor part of Sao Paolo.
The DLC 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.
Rockstar apologized for the delay as well, stating, "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 Hostage Negotiation DLC will be available for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE or $9.99 USD on PlayStation Network and PC. The DLC is free for those who purchased the Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass.
