Max Payne 3 arcade mode unveiled

Published

 on

Rockstar has recently announced the “arcade mode” for Max Payne 3, which is sure to please fans of the earlier titles in the series.

Arcade mode will be unlocked for each chapter of the campaign once that specific chapter is completed. The first flavor of the mode is one called “Score Attack”. You earn points depending on where you hit enemies; a body shot is 10 points, a headshot is 100 points, blowing away an enemy is 200, and causing an explosion is 250. Actions such as diving, using slow-mo, and chaining together kills nets you multipliers, while using painkillers and taking damage deducts points. Cut-scenes and cinematics are cut from this mode, so it’ll be perfect for those moments when you just want to unwind with some action.

The second part of arcade mode is “New York Minute”. In this one, you’re given a 60 second timer and have to kill enemies to replenish the timer before it runs out. Anybody who enjoys speedruns will surely get a kick out of this mode, as it’ll involve quick thinking and reflexes on your part. The multipliers return here as well.

Leaderbords will be available for arcade mode, and you even net XP from it which transfers over to multi-player. You can check out the screenshots of the arcade action below, and you can also expect a full review of Max Payne 3 in the coming weeks. It releases for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on May 15th.

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.

OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns discussed the importance of Railway Empire in the wider genre of historical games, noting that “the developer grants an insight into the importance of such seemingly menial tasks.”
