Max Payne 3 arcade modes detailed

Rockstar have announced a few details on their two arcade modes on Max Payne 3, which launches next week.

Titled ‘New York Minute’ and ‘Score Attack’, the small modes will allow players to draw more game-time out of the Vancouver-based studio’s AAA title, without the need to play online:

“Max Payne 3’s Arcade Modes bring intense bonus shootout challenges to the single-player game experience. In addition to the thrill of besting your own top scores (and the scores of all your Friends and Crew members at the new Social Club), high scores also reward you exclusive multiplayer avatars and XP benefits.”

The publisher then went on to give the lowdown on the aforementioned challenges:

  • New York Minute – This fan-favourite bonus mode from Max Payne and Max Payne 2 returns as a frantic battle that puts one minute on the clock and awards you with additional time for each enemy that you kill.
  • Score Attack – After you’ve completed any single-player level, you’ll be able to replay it in Score Attack mode, where you gun for the highest score possible – acquiring points for each shot that hits its mark and each adversary you vanquish.

Will you be spending any time on these modes, or are you more inclined to just hop on to the multiplayer right away? Maybe you have an opinion on ‘New York Minute’ from the first two games? Let us know in the comments below.
