Packing three maps from the intense closing chapters of Max Payne 3's single-player story, Rockstar has today announced that the first DLC pack called 'Local Justice' will be heading to consoles early next month, as part of the Rockstar Pass or for purchase on its own.

The Local Justice DLC includes the three aformentioned maps alongside new weapons and items including new perks. Here's the bulletpoint rundown of what the pack includes:

  • 55th Battalion HQ map for all game modes
  • Imperial Palace and Departure Lounge maps for Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Payne Killer 
  • Light Fingers Item for faster looting 
  • M4 Assault Rifle with attachments 
  • São Paulo Police Faction with related avatar customisation options

As the Local Justice pack was supposed to release in June, Rockstar will now be releasing it at a discounted price of 480 Microsoft Points for the first week starting from July 3rd. After that first week on sale, it'll return to the regular price of 640 Microsoft Points.

You can also get the DLC as part of the Rockstar Pass, which is still available for 2400 Microsoft Points. As part of the pass, you'll be able to get the Disorganized Crime Map Pack, Deathmatch Made in Heaven mode, Hostage Negotiation Map Pack and New York Minute co-op pack in summer 2012 and the Painful Memories and Trickle Down Economics Map Packs in fall 2012.

Finally, Rockstar is also making the following pre-order DLC available for everyone from July 3rd. It too will be free with a Rockstar Pass:
  • Cemetery Map:  160 MSP
  • Silent Killer Loadout Pack:  160 MSP
  • Pill Bottle Item:  80 MSP
  • Deadly Force Burst:  80 MSP
  • Classic Max Payne Character:  80 MSP

The discounted price for the first week doesn't really make it up to the season pass holders though.

Me thinks the season pass for this was a little premature, considering the game technically 'bombed', and the MP kinda died instantly.

Good to see they're suporting it though, not that they really have much of a choice now people have shelled out for the SP.

Remember when games that were single player-only in the past used to get single player/story DLC? Hahah, me neither!

The Rockstar Pass is difficult to determine if I want to buy...I dont know if this game will survive until the Fall.

Lets see if I buy it all seperately it will cost me $13 compared to if I buy the Rockstar Pass that costs $ looks like there are 6 DLC's left...even if priced at 480...thats $36 plus the $13 I'm going to spend on Tuesday...$49 compared to $30...I think the Rockstar Pass is a better value.

Looks like I will be getting the R* pass after all. 5 DLC packs @ 640MSP each, plus 560MSP of pre-order DLC = 3760 MSP. R* Pass = 2400 MSP.

"It's late."
"There are achievements."

It'd be harder to find a bitchier bunch at a pop concert. Buy it if you want it, don't buy it if you don't want it. Me, I'm psyched for it and am glad I got my season pass.

They took three maps and some guns out of the disc and are selling them as the first DLC. it's a rip off and i won't be buying it ever. i hardly buy DLCs for all games i play they are only for sad people with no life.

Finally! Bought R* pass long time ago and was concern that they not release 1st DLC as it was suppose at the end of the June. But very disappointed that two maps from three is only playable in DM, TDM, and PK modes... R* are you F*cking serious? Is that so hard to make those maps be available for Gang Wars (the only mode that im interested with)?

@13 Usually people buy dlc because they like the game, not because they have no life.

@13 - If you've kept up with anything R* has said about the DLC is that everything is developed well after the final product was put out.

This content and future content isn't just sitting on a virtual shelf waiting to be released.

Also, judging by your post history, it appears you're a big Minecraft fan. Many people (not me) would comment that Minecraft is "only for sad people with no life." To summarize, you're a dick.

I wish they would just make a Dead Man Walking mode as DLC or something. Unfortunately, the community for this game is really, *really* hurting - as in, the last time I logged on at around 8pm, there were a total of 450 people online... granted there were another 180 in the free aim modes (LOL, why do they split their community up with so many different lobbies and specifications? Let's say for some reason you want to play free aim death match... not a single soul in the lobby). I'm sure those preorder or "buy individually" maps will get a lot of public playing time, too... Most of these new maps don't even support Gang Wars, which I think many people (and the population numbers) will agree, is the best game type.

Will there be any single player dlc for this at all? Multiplayer was decent but it's not something I'll continue playing.

Achievements or no buy. The MP isn't worth investing in unless there is a reward like achievements.

BTW, I said 'no' to the Rockstar Pass even before I realized that a lot of the "more expensive if you buy it all individually" content was just overpriced single items, as seen above.

@19 - From what the season pass looks to cover, none whatsoever. I love Rockstar, but they're pushing multiplayer over everything else at present.

Multiplayer was fun up until players surpassed level 20 and began using that ridiculous rifle. If you're gonna make a game where you get new and better stuff every ten levels then do gamers who don't have the time or energy to only play your game a favor and make playlists that based on level.

It'd be nice if I could only play games with people who have access to the same stuff as me. Then I wouldn't have to worry about dying from one frakking bullet to the hand from that rifle.

All of you stating the MP is dead or died instantly. There have been 517,000,000 kills since launch. Sound dead? 15 Billion shots fired....

Any complaining about the Pass, 8 dlc's included. Name one other company that offers that for $30? Also the only things being sold individually are the bonuses. Also name one company that would discount their DLC because it was 3 days late?

I'm ready for this & a thumbs up to anyone else who is. To the haters, you'd better change your attitude or enjoy living life paycheck to paycheck. People that can help you get a head in life don't listen to bitching.

MP is pretty good, but the only thing that annoys me is the amount of times I respawn right in-front of an enemy. Also, 1/5 of my deaths are at the hands of a person using the mini-30. It is a bit over powered/or the other guns are under powered.

I think the M4 is a completely new weapon. It wasn't in the SP story.

@27 - Hard to believe you were able to see the screen to type that up, what with R*'s cock in your mouth the whole time, and all.

I mean, ferfucksake, dude - having complaints about a game leads to poverty and destitution?

Exaggerate much? :D

I love R*, one of and if if not my favorite developers. I have enjoyed MP3's single player to death but the MP just hasn't grabbed me yet. With Borderlands 2 comming out in September and all the others in the fall (hopefully GTAV but doubt it) I just don't believe I want to spend my free time playing MP3's multiplayer.
I want to like MP3 online, it just has not happened yet.

why are people constantly hating on this game?! is it because it's not your generic FPS run-n-gun shooter? people need to appreciate good shooters like Max Payne for once, they multiplayer is NOT dead and is NOT bad whatsoever. And yes, there will be achievements for those who are contemplating on whether to get it or not based on that fact.
