Max Payne 3's 'New York Minute' and 'Score Attack' Modes Exposed

View author's profile

Rockstar has today revealed the first details of Max Payne 3's additional single-player modes that you can unlock upon completing the campaign. There are two types of Arcade Mode, including the 'Score Attack' which unlocks a new chapter to play once you've completed said chapter from the story mode. 'New York Minute' also makes a comeback from the first Max Payne and Max Payne 2.

In Score Attack, you'll accumulate points for accurately hitting your target and for killing enemies, with high scores awarding not only a load of XP and extra avatars like Raul Passos and Fabiana Branco for multiplayer, but also leaderboard bragging rights. You'll be wanting to strive for platinum rankings in each level for both Score Attack and New York Minute to acquire the largest rewards.

Fan favourite New York Minute is unlocked once you finish the story in its entirety, giving you the chance to jump into the game and simply enjoy pure, unadulterated gunplay with one minute on the clock. You can extend your time with each enemy that you kill, making for some intense and chaotic shootouts.

Max Payne 3 is out on May 15th in North America and May 18th in Europe. Keep your eyes peeled for our impending Max Payne 3 review.

Your wrong, it's going to be pretty solid.

New York Minute will be fun fighting against the clock.

I wish the difficulty is tone down a bit for Plats otherwise many few will enjoy it.

As I always say challenge difficulty should be reasonable rather then outright insane

Why do people always get downvoted for voicing their opinion?

@14 Aparrently you're only supposed to post good things about games otherwise you're not allowed to post anything at all. God bless the freedom of speech and democracy.

I normally HATE Time Attack modes, but I have a feeling that MP3's will be quite fun!

@4: You're right but in this case Remedy had already created gold which Rockstar only polishes from dust, maybe shaping it for the better too.

^ Wouldn't that be Remedy's job for Max Payne HD unless of course Remedy has sold off Max Payne altogether to Rockstar

Can,t wait for this, i even got a renewed intrest again in playing MP in this one, and thats been awhile. To add something to above stuff, freedom of speech is a funny thing, ppl allowed to perform their oppinions but then again when it not suits others ppl oppinions they get downrated or even a series of bad comments back, if the first guy realy believes this is gonna turn out an average game thats his oppinion ;) I think otherwise but as with all things in life what one loves they other one hates.

They had better include Dead Man Walking mode, like in MP2. That was genius. In many ways, it did Horde better than the actual Horde mode, and it felt like its own thing since the games were so much faster and death was always so close. And @29, I like the reference! "I think I died. I think I died. I think I'm dead, I DON'T KNOW!..... The FLESH of FALLEN ANGELS!" Valhalla baby.

and @28, no, this is really NOT the place to start, if you can help it. You'll thank me if you just go play the first two really quick before you try the third. Just about any PC with a graphics card can run them and they're on xbox too, if need be. I highly recommend them on PC, though.
