News: New details on the third Max Payne game.
About The Game
Rockstar has released a few new details on the next noirish adventure of Max Payne. Max Payne 3 will be released this Winter and will star a significantly older, slightly overweight and very bald Max Payne as he performs security for a wealthy family in Brazil.
Here's what Rockstar had to say about the story and the gameplay:
About The Story
Max Payne 3 begins 12 years after the events of Max Payne 2, with Max visibly older, more violent, and more world-weary from the events of his own life. Having left the NYPD, Max has been taking odd jobs in security and consulting, and when we find him he is providing personal protection for a wealthy family in Sao Paolo, one of the world's deadliest and most crime-ridden cities. At absolute rock-bottom, Max discovers that trouble still dogs his every step, and he finds himself drawn into the brutal heart of the Brazil's dark underworld.
Max Payne 3 retains many trademarks of its predecessors; a focus on story and character-driven action, a large number of sophisticated weapons with dual-wield capabilities, Bullet-Time, an addiction to painkillers, mature themes and Max's ever-present internal monologue. Max Payne 3 also utilizes Natural Motion and Rockstar's own RAGE engine, working with brand-new particle physics technology to deliver spectacular, highly advanced close-quarters combat, an intelligent cover system, and constantly varied gameplay in every level.
Max Payne 3 will be released on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 before the end of the year.
