A good crew is one that sticks together to pull off a big job, and to watch each other’s backs. This type of mentality has been seen in crime-dramas, and Rockstar seems to be taking it to heart.
In the Max Payne 3 multiplayer, the crew run with can be transferred over to Grand Theft Auto 5.
Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser had this to say to IGN about their new Social Club feature
“Multiplayer is an ever-more important part of all our games moving forward,” he said.
“And by creating crews through Social Club, the crews that you create in Max Payne 3 will be ready and available for you to play in Grand Theft Auto V from day one.
“It’s all part of our larger approach to make multiplayer deeper and richer than what’s currently available, much more easily accessible to the newcomer and rewarding for the hardcore.”
Players can roll with public crews which are open to everyone or private crews with a small group of friends. You can join up to five crews at a time and completing tasks as a team means more XP points.
The multiplayer will also feature persistent Feuds amongst crews and Vendettas in-game when a teammate is killed multiple times by the same opposing crew member.
It looks like Rockstar is aiming to change how gamers view multiplayer.
Max Payne 3 hits stores on May 18th for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. GTA5 however, is unknown.
