Rockstar is holding a special Halloween-themed multiplayer event for Max Payne 3 this weekend.

From 4-7pm Eastern Time today (that's around 8-12pm in the UK) the event will allow you to wear a different masks depending on your membership level. The Demonic Skull mask is available for all Social Club members, while the Dead Skull mask is available to Founder Crew members.

More important than all of that, however, everyone will receive triple XP. Woop.

This XP event makes no sense to me. I've never seen any XP event only last 3 hours and not to mention the time it is held pretty much stops anyone with a full time job or people on the west coast from even having a chance of playing. I don't get home from work until 6:30 the earliest on a Friday and I live on the east coast. I feel like this is poor planning as it will exclude individuals that have no ability to even being home to play this.

I missed that line while reading it on my phone. It still doesn't explain the mask party taking place 4-7pm to celebrate Halloween when it isn't even Halloween tonight.

#17 and #18, I can confirm that you keep the masks. all of us that were able to get them still have them on. #19 I'm not sure why it's like that for some people, but mine didn't appear until I restarted my console.

Wow. Would be nice to explain the actual way to equip these masks since i was looking around all loadout options and have yet to find it. Def poor planning.

Also.. Too bad it only lasted a few hours. I would have quite been on this but since no 3x xp i guess its back to medal of honor for me.

Rockstar suck with announcing their multiplayer events, the very first one for Max Payne 3 coincided with the Champions League final, the second with some Euro 2012 game...another was announced as 11am-2pm EST which is like admitting your fanbase are wastemen (If it was aimed at the Euro audience who'd be off work/school by that point why not state the time in GMT?)

When ever the devs are playing the game you're only told about 30 beforehand on Twitter. Who the hell looks at twitter more than every few hours and doesn't read in bulk?

This company's flaws become more apparent everyday. It's a good thing they make great games.

#20 thanks for the reply, sure enough I just signed on several hours later and the Demonic Skull was unlocked. No Day of the Dead skull though...
