Rockstar offers tips to master Max Payne 3's new Hostage Negotiation maps

The Hostage Negotiation pack for Max Payne 3 is one of the biggest additions to the game's multiplayer, and today Rockstar released some tips for getting players through the pack's four new maps.

The developer shared high-definition overhead looks at the four new maps available for Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Payne Killer modes.

Favela Heights is a multi-tiered map, dotted with watertowers for sniping opportunities and rooftop pathways for scurrying out of danger. Estadio do Galatians sets players in a busy stadium on game day and offers close-quarters combat in luxury seating boxes and locker rooms. Club Moderno and O Ppalacia Strip Club offer claustrophobic matches as well, presenting players with opportunities to set traps for opponents.

Hostage Negotiation will be available on PlayStation 3 and PC for $9.99 and Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) on Oct. 30.
