One of the São Paulo’s favelas more distinctive looking gangs, the Filhos De Ogum feature unique accessories and ragged mismatching footwear.
The devastating new Explosive Burst, plus a range of new Achievements and Trophies, Multiplayer Grinds and more...
The Hostage Negotiation Pack is available for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE or $9.99 on PlayStation Network and PC. Rockstar Pass owners of course receive it, along with all other Max Payne 3 downloadable content, free of charge.

        Will there be any complete edition for Max Payne 3? With all DLC's? Thank you.

          Can someone please explain to me how you unlock the "60 seconds of intimidation" achievement?! Does it need to be done in one single match or is it cumulative? Looking on the web nobody seems to really know. Any help would be highly appreciated, cheers!
          • BranLP84on November 16 2012, 6:52amReplyFlag
            @Breums The task accumulates over time. Anybody reloading in your presence 'line of sight' counts towards your 60 Seconds. It does not have to be done in one match. And no, there's no way to track your time. I found it quicker to play Deathmatch instead of Team Deathmatch because in Deathmatch, EVERYONE is an enemy. It may take some time to get done, but just 'GRIND' it out. You'll get it eventually.

            @Breums ALSO, you have to equip the Intimidation Mask to whatever LOADOUT you're using. Almost forgot the MOST important information. (LOL) And if you need to know what the Intimidation Mask does, it slows down how fast enemy reload while in your near presence. I think it only works mid to close range.

          Sigh.... How I wish I could play this DLC and the disorganized crime dlc...

          I've been playing TBOGT recenty. Great game. I'm too bumed to play MP3 because I don't think my issue with the DLC not saving the install will be resolved. I submitted a trouble ticket on 7 Nov, and haven't even received an acknowledgment. :(

          Won't be buying season pass for GTA V. I'll spend more money, but won't have to worry about sh... like this.

              @R* Is it true that you have to reach legend 5 rang 50 to get the "training complete" trophy? I just reached rang 50 for first time and it was already a long way to get there.

              I went into game station about 2 months ago and come across a max payne figure for around £40, needless to say i wanted it. i came back a week later and it was gone =(. I've looked on the warehouse and i cannot seem to find it. I do not really want one off of amazon, i would rather a new one. Will you be getting any more of these or were they a special item to go with the release of max payne 3? I will get one off of amazon if needed but i thought i should ask first......thanks!

                @cufbert We recommend contacting to ask our Warehouse team, as they'll have a better idea of future availability.

              Why do I get kicked out of EVERY multiplayer game I start due to "connection problems"? Hurricane Sandy? Should I just sell this game back and cut my losses? These are questions that need answering.

                @videopat Sorry to hear that's happening when you try to play. We have a brand new title update coming soon that will fix several issues, so look for our announcement when it releases.

              Rockstar* you guys should make a manhunt 1 & 2 collection for ps3 on PSN store for download for the ps2 classics that would be cool and also we as fans would like to see GTA v limited edition that comes with GTA SA or for download on PSN now that would be nice.

                @smpfilms Thanks for the suggestions, but remember to stay on topic.

              That's odd. I still don't see the new content in the store and I've been checking all week. What gives? I'll go check again, but seriously...

              @Wis3d0c Cool. We were glad to hear that PlayStation was able to resolve the issue.

              Was this the issue really R* ? Because according to one of your representatives at the Customer support hotline told me because of hurricane Sandy you had to rebuild some servers due to damage. So IF that was all it was why didnt you post that fact here ? Why are you pointing the blame at Sony? Will we ever know the truth? Probably not.

              Just like politicians always blaming the other guy. Pathetic.
              • R* Yon November 12 2012, 3:29pmReplyFlag
                @Sinister_Beast72 Our Support staff were operating at reduced levels in the aftermath of the hurricane. As for the DLC not being available immediately to Rockstar Pass users, Sony was able to fix that since it was something on their side causing the problem. Hope everyone is enjoying the DLC!

                @ well i will never get the whole story your reps say one thing on the phone and you say another. The best part about waiting a week and a half for the DLC is the favela heights map. Hands down the best map yet , except for the campers all the way in the back of the map sitting at the top of any given stairway ... waiting .

              Last week when the dlc came out there was over 1,400 people on there. I went on last night with a friend and there was like 130 people. I was a bit sad about it because I just love this game, absolutely love it. So we made the best of it, went into large deathmatch (free aim) and ranked up our sniper rifles, and I'm garbage as a sniper, lol. It was actually some of the most fun we had on there in a while, just the 2 of us. The new sniper rifle is nice too. I'll never give up on this game, you can always work something out. I just really hope this game doesn't go down the toilet. R*, you guys rock, can't wait for future dlc.

                Thanks R* for fixing the DLC. I do have a couple questions? will there be a patch released in the near future to fix the getting kicked from games, invisible player and the being stuck behind cover cuz i got killed as the target because of that. Also will u be adding some of the DLC maps to gang wars cuz i played them finally today and there good maps...and is there a way to get those halloween masks cuz i missed that social club event. O and im having problems with my payne threshold score not going up.

                  @LordDeathDemon Yep, there's a new title update coming this month that will fix several issues. We'll post a new article when it's out.

                    Its now working I wanna thank everyone that complained here and on the psn board we made things move and forced them to take a look at it and with patience and a lot of arguing we finally got what we paid for......

                    Now let's hope this won't happen with the last two dlc's or we might go crazy again :) good game yalll I think we deserve 3xp for the wait what you guys think ;)???

                      @BaronSamedi911 3xp I say for us that do not cheat how about 4xp for at least 4 days to catch up to these who do cheat and to make up for the wait of the new DLC.

                      @Agent_Death We'll certainly have more bonus XP this month, and will announce it ahead of time to give everyone a heads up
