Max Payne 3 Social Club Event (Friday 10.12 at 4-7PM ET) and Triple XP All Weekend Long

Posted on October 12 2012, 7:30am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

This Friday's Social Club multiplayer event kicks off an explosive Max Payne 3 TRIPLE XP Weekend. Join us from 4-7pm EDT / 9pm-12am BST across all three platforms (PC, PS3 and Xbox 360) and earn three times the multiplayer XP across all game modes straight on through until Monday morning.

Gang Wars battles return to the Social Club Multiplayer Event Playlist for this Friday's event, so expect lots of objective-based action in the Hoboken Alleys, Tietê River Docks, 55th Battalion HQ and São Paulo Bus Depot. The event playlist will also feature Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch competition, with maps and modes rotating all throughout the afternoon.
On the Social Club Multiplayer Events Page you'll be able to chat with us and other community members while watching two live streams of all the action, plus you can enter to win a prize pack featuring a Max Payne 3 logo t-shirt, bullet keychain and Rockstar stickers while tracking everybody's performance on the event leaderboard. Our channel at TwitchTV also features a third bonus live video stream and chatroom.
The full event details, including who to look for and how to participate are laid out below...

Participating official in-game Rockstar names will be:

  • MaxPayneDev1 (PC)
  • MaxPayneDev2 (Xbox 360)
  • MaxPayneDev4 (PSN)
  • MaxPayneDev3 (PC on Twitch)

If you're unsure of when the event will begin in your time zone, have a look at the countdown on the Social Club multiplayer events page.

When the event starts up on Friday, enter Max Payne 3 multiplayer and select the Social Club Multiplayer Event playlist. We'll play Free Aim 100% of the time on PC, and a mix of Soft Lock and Free Aim on PSN and Xbox LIVE, so look for the names listed above.

If you want more time to play our games with us, your best bet is to follow us at our official Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Steam pages so you can get the word when we're going online for some impromptu multiplayer...

          @LXGcrew @DutchStoner now we all know who has the best crew here, stop arguing.
          • LXG_No_Mercyon October 21 2012, 12:53pmReplyFlag
            For the record The LXG CREW is the #1 private crew, with the XP we have on Xbox 360 alone we would be far past any other private crew on any platform, this is a fact, we have earned our spot with honest gameplay and dedicated members, if the shoe was on the other foot i would accept it and still be content, not hate, no hate over here, thank you have a good day.

              hey r* love the game, most fun iv ever had on any online game.. on the last multiplayer event my ps3 kept crashing and i never get to play with the devs i think i could beat them easy with some of my crew members lol so how can i get in a match with them?.. also my first never show for my crew and can you fix the snipers abit because they are way to weak now sometimes 3 to 4 shots when it should be 1 or 2 shots to kill an enemy. peace

              You claim to be the #1 crew of the whole socialclub, We have more XP then LXG so your talking bs.
              So next time you make a video, dont fill it with lies! And try to sound a bit more lively on your video's, Are your serious when you speak in the video's, it sounds extremely funny in a bad way! LOL

                @peawicko i think you have the option to make your profile locked for a reason...and i chose to block my profile its a matter of personal preference and i don't want ppl like you to look at my personal info ....its called privacy!if some one chose to make their profile public its their choice too....

                @WISPYJO wooaah! hang on a minute i think someone needs to look in the mirror! i am not the one that went looking at peoples stats and then felt the need to WRITE IN CAPITALS on the news wire saying people have big mouths! perhaps you can hide your profile to protect yourself from people like yourself! i only read your stats were closed in the message above! do you really think i would care what your stats are? lol just think its lame when people shout about others yet hide their own!

              LOL@LXGCREW, They claim the #1spot of all crews on all platforms.
              We still have more total crew XP then they do crossplatform!
              Ganja Outlaws has almost 174 million total crew XP and LXG has almost 172 million total crew XP. So they are full of sh!t! Bunch of muppets with false claims need to some research!

                @DutchStoner Plus we didnt get any triple xp points the triple xp weekend before the last one., so we are missing millions of XP on PSN.

                @LXG_No_Mercy lol you have already been slated and banned once on payne forums now you continue your disillusioned comments on the news wire! you are the no.1 on xbox and xbox only! nothing else, nowhere else, and to say you would be on ps3 is complete speculation and dreaming! also crews can be multi platform so surely the crew with the most xp multi platform is the no.1 crew? not just on xbox!

                @peawicko There have been delays in the release of DLC due to some minor development issues, but we are committed to providing all of the Max Payne 3 DLC that was planned.

                We’ve consolidated the upcoming content from five packs into three. Three larger packs instead of five smaller ones. The total amount of content is the same. No changes have been made to the pricing structure that would adversely affect the 35% discount that all Rockstar Pass holders were originally promised.

                @ This makes me happy R*! I have stuck with R* games every platform i own. However it was a close one with all the time I spent on Max Payne just to get reset. Glad to hear the problem can be resolved R* 4 life once again Thanks!

                @ thats cool and nice to hear as i cant help but feel a bit let down up until now, any idea of when? that would at least relieve some of the dissapointment that alot of people seem to feel?

                @peawicko No doubt every game has its problems! However its good to resolve the problems for players like us who play as much as we do
                I have talked many friends in to purchasing Max Payne and thankfully the reset did not affect them or they might not have given R* another chance as i have done. Again no beef with Max Payne love the game. Also no beef with Rockstar either now that the reset issue will be resolved. R* if you could see some of the arguments my wife and I get into over me playing this game soooo much you would understand the reaction over my stats being reset caused! Again thanks for the fix Rockstar

                Triple XP is awesome and really helps to level up!! How about triple XP for December since the next GTA isn't ready yet? Or perhaps, there could be special bonuses to those reaching the varying Legend levels, I know your cash multiplier goes up but you don't really need it once you reach level 20-25 as you have enough to get any weapons you need. Maybe, they could give you a special burst or weapon that really gives you a leg up on the field or even early access to the upper level weapons? Also, not sure if there is a cheat people are using but I am coming up against enemies with level 40 weapons when their rank is well below rank 20 which doesn't make sense unless I have seriously missed something. Anyway, keep up the triple XP and come up with something special for those of us willing to start over again and again....Please!
