Max Payne 3 Coming March 2012

Posted on September 8 2011, 8:00am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Today, we're proud to announce that Max Payne 3 - the new dark, gritty action experience that continues the tale of former New York City detective Max Payne and is sure to satisfy both newcomers and veterans to the historic franchise alike - is expected to launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in March 2012 in North America and Europe.

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.

A true cross-studio collaboration between Rockstar Games’ global development teams that picks up from where series creator Remedy Entertainment's Max Payne 2 left off, Max Payne 3 utilizes cutting edge technology for a seamless, cinematic action experience, incorporating the latest advances in Natural Motion physics as well as a brand new iteration of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine, resulting in 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 also be the first entry in the series to introduce a thorough and engrossing multiplayer experience. In a unique twist, Max Payne 3 multiplayer delivers 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.

Stay tuned for much more news very soon and check out a pair of brand new screenshots from Max Payne 3 below.

    @vysakhj We recommend contacting your local game stores so you can find out if they'll be carrying the Special Edition in your area

    @15475771 Not to worry - throughout the story of Max Payne 3 you’ll see not only the favelas but certainly the more glamorous and prestigious areas of the city as well. The contrast between rich and poor was very important to us. As was the rain...

          I just have an appointment:

          In São Paulo, NOBODY wears the soccer team shirt of "Fluminense". That's a soccer team from RIO DE JANEIRO.

          The teams tipically found in that areas are Corinthians, São Paulo e Palmeiras.

          Please, DO NOT let it be an EPIC "gringo" fail to anybody that knows that in Brazil we aren't monkeys and that we have electricity.

          Show some respect for one of the biggest cities of the world.

                  @VintageFrog I think the EDGE mag article mentioned that the graphic novel scenes would be intact, maybe upgraded to motion comics.. i can't remember exactly what it said. Now whether or not it's been changed since i have no idea. I am hoping for the same kind dark humor and writing style just as you are.

                  Lines like "The train lit up like a Christmas tree" refuse to escape my memory, these kind of thoughts coming from Max are what i loved about following the story in the games, his comments on everything was awesome.
