Rockstar has announced a double XP weekend for Max Payne 3 multiplayer. Kicking off this Friday night, you’ll be doubling up every single point earned, including Crew bonuses. Which is nice.

Rockstar will also be live-streaming the event from 4-7pm EST / 9pm-midnight BST on Friday. They’ll be playing all game modes including those in the Local Justice Map Pack, which is out now. You can grab it for 480 MSP until July 10th and it'll be 560 MSP thereafter, or you can download it as part of the Rockstar Pass for 2400 MSP. Add it to your download queue here.

To join the developers, select the ‘Social Club Multiplayer Event’ option from the Playlists menu. Official Rockstar players will be marked with “a special visible in-game dog tag logo” that says “MaxPayneDev3.”

There’s more over on Rockstar Newswire.

Would people shut up about GTA V already? If you know the history of rockstar, you would know that they only drip feed you. They're not gonna say, here's a teaser, here's 4 trailers, here's the release date and our dlc plans.
comments on articles written on max Payne 3 seem to go straight to gta.

As for the double XP, it'll give me a reason to get back on max Payne 3 and enjoy that new dlc.

Rockstar typically releases one major title on consoles a year, and the last 3 years it has been around may 18th... For now, just use that knowledge for what it's worth

I love it when Max gets wasted, then stumbles around his apartment running into things and hitting the floor. What a bad ass!

@#3 - Goddamn right. Max Payne has got nothing on RDR Multiplayer.

@#5 & #6 - The fact that people always bring up GTAV in Max Payne 3 threads is indicative of the overall interest in the two games: MP3 - very little, GTAV - very much.

And while it is correct that R* usually only publish one game a year, they have gone 2 games now without a bona fide money-making juggernaut (L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3 are duds in this respect - regardless of whatever people think of the quality of these games). And just as recently as 2008, they did release two games in one year (GTAIV and Midnight Club: L.A. - not to mention the Bully re-make), so it's not like they've set the 1-game-a-year thing in stone...

Also, and I can't stress this enough, Take-Two (R*'s parent) has projected that they'll rake in nearly $2 billion in revenues by the end of this fiscal year, which ends in March 2013. The only way they they'll see that money is to release GTAV (even Borderlands 2, BioShock: Infinite and Max Payne 3 combined are not going to get them there). So GTAV has a decent chance of showing up before the year's out.

And the reason they're keeping everything GTAV under their collective hat?

They don't want to quash the little interest they've still got left for Max Payne 3 before they even get out all that awesome Multiplayer DLC they have in store for the few of you who still want to play it.

#12 I feel bad for enjoying the MP3 multiplayer now. What should we play to be as super awesome as you? I need to move on before it's too late

OT what about GTAV?

@#13 - I never said you shouldn't enjoy Max Payne 3, you just inferred that because you didn't like what I said.

So I made a couple of back-handed swipes at MP3's multiplayer... So what? If you're enjoying it, then by all means continue playing.

But don't kid yourself that MP3 is a popular enough game to stand the test of time.

@12, ppl like you are all the reason why GTA 5 is always brought up.

They have dlc running for max Payne 3 until fall... They obviously expect this games community to last awhile. I bet all the money I have that GTA 5 does not release this year.

Obviously you missed the part in my post where I said major release. Midnight club and bully would not classify as major.

I stand by my original statement.

Stop hating on Max Payne 3, the game is great. And for the people complaining about GTA 5 not being talked about enough, you're all ignorant. The game is NOT coming out this year, if you think otherwise then you live under a rock. We'll be lucky if it even comes out on this generation console.

@#16 - Yes, and they EXPECTED MP3 to sell a lot more units than it has - but it hasn't. So they set their DLC release schedule based on this now unmet expectation, and it is no indicator of anything other than R* had high hopes the game would be more popular.

And Fall is, what, September?

They could have GTAV out by mid-October/early-November and wouldn't have to do much. The ad campaign could consist of a black screen with the game logo and the two words "Out Now." and people would go buy it in massive numbers. They don't have to have a lengthy marketing campaign to raise awareness/interest like they did Red Dead, L.A. Noire or Max Payne 3. And I can see the stories now how people will be amazed by R* going against their own convention and releasing 2 titles this year. They'll be hailed as "revolutionaries" for breaking their own loose release standard.

And on the "major releases" issue, you obviously missed the part in my post where I pointed out that they've had two financial duds in two "major releases". So it's not beyond the pale to suggest they might want to actually make some money and release GTAV. And I think pursuit of money trumps a loose release standard, don't you?

And, again, overlooking Take-Two's financial projections is also just as shortsighted. They weren't just boasting, they made these predictions to shareholders. That means there are people who are going to hold them to it and want them to make good on their promise.

Take-Two will not make $2 billion dollars without GTAV - this is a no-brainer.
