Max Payne 3's 'New York Minute' and 'Score Attack' Modes Exposed

Rockstar has today revealed the first details of Max Payne 3's additional single-player modes that you can unlock upon completing the campaign. There are two types of Arcade Mode, including the 'Score Attack' which unlocks a new chapter to play once you've completed said chapter from the story mode. 'New York Minute' also makes a comeback from the first Max Payne and Max Payne 2.

In Score Attack, you'll accumulate points for accurately hitting your target and for killing enemies, with high scores awarding not only a load of XP and extra avatars like Raul Passos and Fabiana Branco for multiplayer, but also leaderboard bragging rights. You'll be wanting to strive for platinum rankings in each level for both Score Attack and New York Minute to acquire the largest rewards.

Fan favourite New York Minute is unlocked once you finish the story in its entirety, giving you the chance to jump into the game and simply enjoy pure, unadulterated gunplay with one minute on the clock. You can extend your time with each enemy that you kill, making for some intense and chaotic shootouts.

Max Payne 3 is out on May 15th in North America and May 18th in Europe.

@10 you're crazy LA Noir and DR are two of the best games made in ages.

Can't wait for the game and glad that there are some nifty single player stuff as well, though still abit upset about the multi stuff.

@15 To be fair Max Payne is nothing like their other games. I can understand people getting bored with GTA/RDR/L.A. Noire cause they're all free roam but Max Payne is linear I believe. Isn't it guys??
