Rocktar’s just announced via press release that Max Payne will see a launch come March of 2012.
Rockstar head Sam Houser said the firm’s “excited to show fans a modern version of Max that pulls them back into his dark and twisted story.”
Feel The Payne
Throughout the game, Max wonâ€™t keep the same look (different missions to carry out I suppose) as in certain levels heâ€™ll have a â€œfull head of hairâ€ â€“ and he â€œisnâ€™t the booze-soaked hulk weâ€™d been led to expect.â€
Payneâ€™s no longer in New York as was the scenario in the second game, but instead his trip takes him to Brazil where he struggles with alcoholism.
Four of Rockstarâ€™s studios have joined hands to bring this latest effort to fruition. They include â€“ Vancouver whoâ€™s still involved from before, but now New England, Toronto and London have joined to make it a great one.
According to the game’s art director Rob Nelson, â€œWe have a lot of talented people across all our studios and this just means we can bring the right people in for a specific task when needed â€“ and it gives the games a consistant level of quality and an approach thatâ€™s Rockstar.â€
Max Payne 3 continues the tale of former New York City detective, Max Payne. Still haunted by the memories of his traumatic past, Max begins a new life working private security protecting a wealthy industrialist and his family in Sao Paulo, Brazil. When gangs target the family under his protection, Max is forced to fight to save his clients and clear his name, in a bid to, once and for all, rid himself of the demons that have tortured him for far too long.
Picking up where the release of Max Payne 2 from series creator Remedy Entertainment left off, Max Payne 3 is a true cross-studio collaboration between Rockstar Games’ global development teams. The game utilizes cutting edge technology for a seamless, cinematic action experience, incorporating the latest advances in Natural Motion physics and a brand new iteration of Rockstar’s own Rockstar Advanced Game Engine. The result offers highly-refined gameplay, with an extensive range of realistic weaponry, an intelligent cover system and sophisticated Bullet-Time mechanics.
In addition to an expansive single-player campaign, Max Payne 3 will be the first title in the series to introduce an addictive multiplayer experience. Max Payne 3′s multiplayer aims to deliver a compelling experience that dynamically alters maps and mode progression for all players in a match. Along with traditional multiplayer modes, Max Payne 3 will also include a deep reward and leveling system, persistent clans and multiple strategic load-out options.
It’ll be available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
