  We are happy to announce that the Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack, the final downloadable content pack for Max Payne 3, is now available for download on the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network and PC, and will be available on January 30 on PlayStation® Network for European PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system owners. The Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack brings new cooperative and competitive game modes to Max Payne 3’s robust multiplayer experience along with a new twist on Arcade Mode. The pack also features a wealth of new weapons, items, bursts, and grinds, along with new achievements and trophies.  Descriptions of the new game modes and screens can be found below:

Run and Stun - One player starts as Saci, Captain Baseball Bat Boy’s nemesis. Saci is a fast, heavily armored character with unlimited stamina and equipped with a Stun Gun and Flash Bangs. Saci adds players to his side with each kill, effectively reducing the number of enemy players on the opposite team. The round ends when the timer runs out or all players are recruited to Saci’s team.

Dead Men Walking - A new cooperative take on Max Payne's classic Dead Man Walking Mode. Players assume the role of Max and Passos to take on waves of increasingly smarter, tougher and better armed enemies. Throughout the match, players earn Grit – a currency used to unlock new areas of the map, pain killers, weapons and weapon attachments.

Time Attack - A new Deathmatch variant that rewards extra points for kills on the higher end of a timer. The timer starts with each kill, lasting 20 seconds. A kill within 2 seconds of the kill timer nets players the maximum score of 10 points. Every 2 seconds, the value of the next kill decreases by 1 point.

Marked Man - Marked Man is a new spin on traditional Deathmatch that rewards players with more XP for taking advantage of Max Payne 3’s Vendetta system. Players earn five points for each Vendetta that they successfully complete and five points for each Vendetta that they survive.

Checkpoint Challenge - A new variant on Arcade Mode that test players’ quickness and skill with an array of new challenges, such as taking out all enemies within a level’s checkpoint with headshots only or explosive kills. Complete a level in Story Mode to unlock its respective Challenge Mode level.

The Deathmatch Made in Heaven DLC Pack for Max Payne 3 Multiplayer features four electrifying new multiplayer modes, including the much-anticipated Dead Men Walking two-player cooperative mode.

In additional to Dead Men Walking, which puts you and a friend up against an endless onslaught of adversaries, there also the new Run & Stun mode featuring Captain Baseball Bat Boy's mischievous nemesis Saci, Marked Man which adds vendetta fueled multipliers to traditional Deathmatch and a new Time Attack mode which awards bonus points for successful kill streaks in a competitive free-for-all.

Check out the feature for a preview of all four new modes, complete with screens from each one, and look for details on the new weapons and Items included in the pack later today.

The IMG 5.56 can squeeze of 45 rounds at a clip and is even more accurate than an AK-47. Throw in its use by military and police around the world and this is a no-brainer upgrade for your current Assault Rifle Loadout.
