The Painful Memories Return in Max Payne 3

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
Most people who are playing Max Payne 3 online will still remember the campaign. The latest DLC promises to bring back some of the more memorable moments from that events after that disastrous private security tasking. One map, however, is bringing back an event from 11 years ago. Roscoe Street was one of the key locations in Max Payne and the aptly named "Painful Memories" DLC adds the location to the multiplayer rotation in Max Payne 3. As well as the new maps, the DLC adds new weapons, avatars, items and five new achievements worth a total of 125G.

If you own the Rockstar Pass for Max Payne 3, DO NOT purchase this content here as you will be charged again. Max Payne 3 required; sold separately. Requires an Xbox LIVE Gold membership to play (sold separately). Inspired by the grisly shootouts from Max’s past, the Painful Memories Pack brings four new maps to Max Payne 3 multiplayer. Revisit the subway bloodbath from the original Max Payne in the Roscoe Street Subway map. Flashback to the dingy Hoboken watering-hole in the Marty’s Bar map, open fire on the posh Branco family yacht in the Shoot First map or wage Gang Wars in the Canal De Panamá map. The pack also includes the IMG 5.56 and UAR-21 assault rifles, new avatars, three items and the Hangover Burst, causing enemies to respawn with blurred vision, reduced stamina and health.
You can study the four new maps in detail right here while you wait for the content to download. If you're not quite sold on a purchase, check out these screenshots.

The achievements for the DLC took quite a while to be added to today, and there's every chance that some of you may be having problems with getting the achievements to be added to your gamerscore. If this is the case, unfortunately you will have to recover your gamertag and earn the achievements again for them to be registered properly.

The "Painful Memories Pack" costs 800 MSP and can be downloaded from here. If you aren't planning on picking up the DLC yet, you will instead have to download the free mandatory "Multiplayer Compatibility Pack # 2" to be able to play online multiplayer with players who have purchased the DLC. This will allow you to see the new multiplayer weapons and avatars but not use them.
