You might want to postpone any Christmas shopping that you had lined up for the weekend and pick up your controllers instead. Equip your gold-plated weapons and head into the multiplayer section of Max Payne 3
to score some of the triple XP available all weekend. As a special bonus, the Rockstar crew is also unlocking the Human Skull Mask for all Social Club members. As long as your gamertag is linked to your Social Club account, you'll find this awesome new skull is already unlocked in the Head Items section of your Multiplayer Loadout.
The developers have taken the season's giving spirit to heart and bonuses don't stop here. New Crew leaderboards are rolling out at noon ET on Monday, December 17th and the Wedding Skull mask will be unlocked for the top 10 user-made Crews.
The first Social Club Multiplayer Event of the winter season also rolls out this weekend, taking place this Saturday, December 15th from 11am to 2pm EST (4-7pm GMT).
