Max Payne 3 has received a new patch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 which prepares for this week’s new DLC and fixes a few bugs.

The patch fixes several bugs and issues that fans have been complaining about, adds a new Multiplayer Player Card system, adds automated cheat protection, and finally implements some lag protection methods. If all this wasn’t enough the patch also introduces Payne Thresholds, a new XP boosting system that is set to go live when the Disorganized Crime DLC launches later this week. The full patch notes are below:

  • The new Multiplayer Player Card, which allows you and your friends to track multiplayer stats including current amount of XP, total kills, favorite weapon and more.
  • New Automated cheat protection and lag protection measures.
  • Improvements to multiplayer load times
  • Players can now spawn with dual wield if they have two sidearms and no two-handed weapon equipped
  • Polish language support has been added
  • Party leader now has the option of taking entire party with them when they back out of a match
  • Weapon rank in the Arsenal is now visible on the left side of the screen, not just the right
  • The Crew menu is now available inside lobbies
  • XP gained for completing Grinds no longer contributes to rankings in Gang Wars matches
  • Improvements to the spectator camera in Gang Wars
  • Gang Wars wager system improved to better show betting results

Do any other issues need addressing? Let us know in the comments below.
