Rockstar has announced that the latest title update for Max Payne 3 has gone live today, bringing a modest list of improvements and fixes to multiplayer. And...well there's not much more to say about it, really.

So, here's the list of fixes, courtesy of Rockstar News Wire:

  • The Kill screen now shows what weapon and burst the enemy used to kill you
  • Fixed an issue where players would occasionally get stuck in cover
  • Fixed an issue where players would occasionally appear invisible
  • Fixed an issue where game modes could appear to be over 100% full
  • Fixed an issue where occasionally a Loadout slot could overwrite another Loadout slot at the start of a round of Gang Wars
  • Fixed an issue where a party would have trouble loading into a new game after a party member had left

Next up for Max Payne 3 will be the Painful Memories DLC, which will be available on December 4th for 800 Microsoft Points.

i'm glad they fixed the issue of being stuck in cover, nothing worse than getting killed when you want to get away

They should build MP from ground up. Maybe that would help to bring some players back into the game. I know I won't be bothered with it anymore=/

Having bought this day one I have to say I'm impressed with Rockstar's support for their first attempt at serious competitive multiplayer and the additions they made to the mode, comparing stats, heat maps, inviting whole crew with one button, symbols to signify who's in a party together, etc.

Essentially it is a glorified GTA V MP beta though and DLC has been funding this progress, I'm not fooling myself.

Hopefully the patch fixes my achievement issues with the Hostage Negotiations pack. Of course, this doesn't get in the way of my love for this but goddamn would it be disappointing if they never patched it and I'd be left with an unable 100%. I did NY Minute Hardcore and was so hyped...

I spent the early weeks of this games release in positive k/d earning negative rep with every game, maybe I was one of the invisibles and I didnt know it.

I became 54% unsporting...I stopped playing after I realised what was happening, will be good to get back online with this now apparently fixed.

Cmon I know there cant be more than 12 people playing this online, and Im sure those people cant afford the new call of duty.If I was a dumb asshole Im sure Id keep playing this pile aswell. But Im not so it's off to play Call of Duty: Modern/Future Warfare/Combat Spec/Black Ops 12.

Did they ever fix the random dashboard that happens in SP? Or are they too busy nerfing things and changing stuff in MP to care about SP? Wouldn't be surprised.

#7, are you saying call of duty isn't broken? I mean I didn't buy black ops 2 but are you saying that after 12 or so attempts a waterproof cod game has been released? I mean if we're comparing cod to max Payne lets throw it out there that SP on max Payne dumps on any cod game to date, as far as online cod only just edges it which is insulting considering its a first attempt vs a 12th attempt

At least they care somewhat about this game still.

They've let Red Dead Multiplayer go to seed.

It's nothing but a bunch of fucking modders anymore. And they cheat openly because they know R* doesn't give a shit about doing anything since Red Dead is sooooo 2-years-ago.

#7: Haha, nice attempt at trolling but I'm not offended. I've got £90 worth of CEX credit ready to drop on COD:BO2 and Halo 4 when I feel like it. They're far from priority titles for me.

Maybe you should complaint about the lack of an update on this site. Again.

@ 13 ha ha thanks. the site is definatly lagging way behind. it wouldnt be so bad if it did it's main job, keeping ou gt's and Gs up to date with reguler's pretty important i would think.

there have been really good COD campaigns, Halo and im sure Max Payne however Rockstar screwed it by adding the bullshit multi in the first place.

Occasionally invisible?

Try every match invisible. Stuff was ridiculous.

I filed upwards of probably ten complaints against people. I understand that it isn't their fault they were invisible (despite Rockstar having a publicly available website where it will reload the avatars and fix it), but that they willfully and arrogantly continued to exploit such an unfair advantage with continuous play is what irked me the most.

#7 I have Black Ops 2 and the yearly model has burnt me our far quicker than any other year, even with zombies in short quantities. I can see allot of people returning to play their old or new games far quicker this year.

#18 I for one was one of those people and only found out something was extremely wrong when I saw my steep rep decline. Never got one message from 1 person saying I was cheating or invisible. 54% unsporting...for this reason alone now. Its very easy to hide behind the rep system and not send a message!

I wasn't even aware that it was an avatar problem and fixable, otherwise I might have looked into fixing it and getting back in the game much sooner. IMO the community is much bigger than the supposed 54% that gave me bad rep...

You weren't one of them,then - I sent a message to each and every person, asking if they knew. I got responses like "Lol yea u jelly?" and "Yeah not my fault." The number of invisible people I played with was FAR larger than 10, but I only filed complaints against the ones who responded with ignorance.

I'm amazed you didn't notice - a lot of the people claimed they were just a floating gun, and that their avatar wouldn't even show up on the "Customize Avatar" screen.
