Max Payne 3 Original Artwork: Factions Series

Posted on June 29 2012, 12:29pm | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Games

For our latest Max Payne 3 Original Artwork release, we present this special Factions Series with the logos, crests and tags of the various, vicious armed squads that Max encounters as his cush security gig in São Paulo spirals into a treacherous bloodbath. Also playable of course in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer as gang faction avatars in Gang Wars as well as in Deathmatch modes - you can now represent your favorite Brazilian pistoleiros as downloadable desktops, mobile wallpapers, Facebook covers, and of course as your Social Club avatar or buddy icon.

Starting with the Unidade de Forças Especiais (UFE), check out the intimidating crest worn on the uniforms of the heavily-armed paramilitary who fight against the thugs and kidnappers and often using torturous methods as brutal as the criminals they're sworn to thwart. For some background on the real-world elite forces of São Paulo, read our earlier Rockstar Research feature: "The Weapon-Wielding Gangsters and Special Police Commands of Max Payne 3". You can also grab a trio of gang faction emblems rendered as they appear in Max Payne 3, emblazoned on walls marking their territory deep in the favelas of Sampa. First is the emblem of Comando Sombra, powerful and far-reaching with more than 3000 members acting under the leadership of the ruthless Serrano, and with a charge sheet that includes drug trafficking, kidnapping and murder. The second emblem belongs to Tropa Z, a favela gang based in Nova Esperança intent on war with Commando Sombra. Our third featured faction is the Filhos De Ogum, another lethal part of the ongoing gang wars, whose signature yellow bubble-letters-and-skull tag can be seen throughout the favelas.








These are all now available for download in the full range of desktop and mobile wallpaper sizes, backgrounds, buddy icons, avatars and a Facebook Cover version over at the Rockstar Games Downloads section or at the Max Payne 3 official site.

    FREE DLC!!!!

    My crew Death Cheaters is running a competition for you to win one of two codes for this new DLC. If you wish to enter, just request an invitation from the link below and join my crew and accumulate XP. In a few days i'll let the first player know!

    The main goal is to gain crew members who play regularly. You don't have to be the best at all but it would be great if you are.

    The only requirement is to accumulate a "decent" amount of XP and hopefully stay crew'd up with us in the future. Oh and please try and spread the word because nothing is really free!

      I have that U.F.E. patch in real life (from the Max Payne 3 pre-order bonus)! It just looks like a decent photograph of it! I stitched it onto a blue pilot's shirt :)

        I know, I'm collecting all. But I was wondering what's the difference like more XP per kill or something. haha

          My God, created a crew today, Lucid Maniacs, because I wanted a crew that's game neutral, meaning it's not tied to a specific game if Rockstar aims to keep this system for future titles, it's in the category "thrill seekers" if you want to know what's it about. Nothing serious, but it made me appreciate the hard work that's being put down into all these emblems and stuff, damn it's hard work.

          See ya guys online then :D for now I'm alone in my crew, but I'll still take you all on D:

          Hi everyone, my crew is looking for new members! If your main focus is on scoring kills and getting XP, it is the right choice for you. It doesn't matter if you are a good player or not, we are also looking for communicative people to have fun with. Let's take it to the top of the leaderboards!

          Всем привет, срочно нужны игроки в новый crew, говорящие по русски приветствуются вдвойне! Мы хотим создать дружелюбную, сплочённую и сильную команду. Вступайте!

              Someone can tell me what's the difference between normal and golden guns?
              (I know the color is one difference)

                While I agree it's looking nice, it's really not that sort of artwork I've been asking for and the U.F.E. one looks a lot like it's simply a picture made with a good camera.

                Please release more artworks from the multiplayer series, like the Local Justice one. Cheers! Have a good weekend.

                  @Emanuel_Berger Good to see that new avatars get now updated simultaneously with the newswire post at the Social Club. Thanks.

                  @R* Oh, may I ask? Is there a new title update to fix the ongoing multiplayer issues, like being kicked back into empty lobbies, freezes, et cetera in the works (PS3, Xbox)?

                  @pro-tactics the game still unplayable? that's nice. lets masturbate over a bunch of stupid graffiti instead of fixing it.

                ROCKSTAR! I just had the greatest idea ever!

                Okay, hear me out; R* Brand POGS!

                It's been long enough that people haven't thought about it, but most still remember it fairly fondly. You could make some for each game, kinda like your avatar selection in the Social Club.

                I'd buy 'em and teach my little neices and nephews how to THROW DOWN! Haha.
