Rockstar has revealed the full line-up of characters in its Classic Multiplayer Character Pack. Available as part of the Max Payne 3 Special Edition, the pack will also be made available for download post-release.

Taken from the original Max Payne and Max Payne 2, the characters will be playable in the game's Deathmatch mode. To accompany the revealed, Rockstar has also detailed each of the characters with profile pics and little monologue descriptions from Max himself. You can find them below, courtesy of Rockstar Newswire.

Max Payne 3 is out today in North America and Friday in Europe. We've played it and we reckon it's rather blummin' brilliant. Check out our review here.

"Vladimir Lem.
He was connected to organized crime. We went back a while. 'Like brothers caught on the opposite sides in a Civil War'. His words."

"Gognitti was a highstrung whiner on the verge of breaking apart like an overamped Energizer bunny. He had the brains to run the business but he lacked the balls, always falling short, taking his frustration out on under-aged addicts and call girls."

"Jack Lupino, a mob boss in the Punchinello crime family, was trafficking. Lupino ran his racket of sex, drugs and contract killings from a sleazy motel and a slum block of tenements."

"Woden was there... in the crowd, standing by the sidelines. It wouldn't be over till the man with the patch would say so. He'd say the right words. I knew he would. He'd better."

"Mona's appearance had triggered a dislocation, schizophrenia. I felt elation, but with it, fear that all the past evils had come along for the ride."

"Winterson was the ideal, what the job was all about. Someone to look up to. Bravura knew it too."

"I had dreamed of revenge. Those dreams were always nightmares, of coming close and then failing. Now I was close. I had a name to guide me. Nicole Horne. I had nothing to lose."

The eponymous and troubled hero of the series returns in a familiar guise for multiplayer deathmatches - appearing as his character model from years prior as an NYPD detective in Max Payne 2.

Only death match?

Forget that I'm not a fan of everyman for themselves game-modes.

Not for me.

@5 - There's not only Deathmatch. There's Team Deathmatch, Payne Killer and Gang Wars. The latter three are all team-based.

@Redrice: He is going by what the article said. Lee only listed Deathmatch mode. Even though common sense should tell us it would be all modes since it is only skins, you should probably have Lee correct that to avoid further confusion. And if the Max Payne 1 skin is included, why isn't he shown or mentioned in the article?

I was hoping we'd get a Cleaner skin in this pack. Oh well, I'll be using Classic Max until I can pimp my own guy out!

It might only be deathmatch as in team modes I thought you had team skins like police and criminal. Might be wrong though!

Thats exactly what i meant, but the team modes are faction based are they not, which would mean the unique character skins will infact only be available in FFA matches, which turns me off from this pack as I much prefer team games.

@12 Yes there will be an Rockstar pass for playing on-line, this said i saw the on-line pass for Max Payne 3 already up in the marketplace under add-ons. So they basicly follow in the footsteps of other gamecompany,s that already doing this.

I know this is late but...

@27 Rockstar would never do that. They actually care about their fans. The Rockstar Pass is a collection of all(/most of) the DLC that will be released in the future. It's cheaper than buying it all separately.
