“Payne Killer” - Latest in the Max Payne 3 Multiplayer Artwork Series

Posted on May 8 2012, 5:48pm | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Games


Inspired by the treacherous Max Payne 3 Multiplayer mode of the same name, 'Payne Killer' is the latest entry in our Max Payne 3 Original Artwork series. In Payne Killer, one team of two plays as Max and his partner Passos gunning to stay alive for as long as possible - and everybody else plays as ruthless mercenaries armed to the teeth, relentlessly trying to take them down.

Designed as the multiplayer evolution of Max Payne 2’s "Dead Man Walking" mode - which put Max up against a continuously streaming onslaught of adversaries - Payne Killer begins as a traditional deathmatch contest, but the first killer and their victim become Max and Passos, gaining special weapons and abilities that give them a fighting chance against all the other remaining players now looking to supplant them. The primary objective for all other players becomes eliminating Max & Passos, earning points based on staying alive and dealing damage as well as landing lethal shots on either Max or Passos. Players that are Max or Passos score points by killing their would-be attackers. At the end of a match, whoever scores the most points is the victor.

This specific battle depicted in our artwork rendition takes place on the Tietê River at the Docks map, and sees Max and Passos laying waste to all-comers as the rain lashes down upon them. As you can see, the pair are wielding some serious firepower to protect themselves. Passos is blasting away with an MPK, part of the Submachine Gun range, and Max is pumping out deadly rounds with the show-stopping M4 Super 90 shotgun.

This piece of art, and a whole lot more, can be downloaded in the full range of desktop and mobile wallpaper sizes, backgrounds, buddy icons, avatars and even a Facebook Cover version - all at the Rockstar Games Downloads section or at the Max Payne 3 official site.

Posted on March 20 2012, 12:07pm | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Rockstar


Today, we're happy to finally announce significantly reduced international shipping rates from the Rockstar Warehouse online store, meaning way lower shipping fees for all fans in Europe when buying Rockstar gear, collectibles and apparel (stay tuned for the sale of PAL games as well coming soon).

If you're a customer in the EU, just visit www.rockstarwarehouse.com and you will be automatically detected by location and designated to select from EU shipping options. Store pricing will now display in Euros (except for UK customers, who will see GBP pricing). Please also note that our default product pricing accounts for the base item price plus import and VAT fees in compliance with EU regulation, but total charges for European customers at the end of checkout will still result in a 20% savings on average* as compared to previous costs when purchasing from the US-based Rockstar Warehouse. (* See our Support FAQ article here for more details including a breakdown of savings by several EU territories)

To celebrate, we've kicked off an International 15% off sale today until March 26th 2012 on all available Rockstar gear, apparel and collectibles (everything except games). So if you've been hesitating to pick up a long-coveted item from the Grand Theft Auto III 10 Year Anniversary Collection like the nearly sold-out Claude Action Figure, GTAIII Lithographs, or any of our popular posters, soundtracks, tee shirts, caps, and more - now is the time.
