Max Payne 3 Coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this May

Posted on January 17 2012, 8:30am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Today we're proud to officially announce that Max Payne 3, the highly-anticipated dark and gritty action experience that continues the tale of former New York City detective Max Payne, will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 on May 15, 2012 in North America and May 18, 2012 in Europe, with the PC version launching on May 29th, 2012 in North America and June 1st, 2012 in Europe.

For Max, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal. No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, he takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.

Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time® and Shootdodge™ effects, full integration of Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience.

In addition to an expansive single-player campaign, Max Payne 3’s multiplayer offering brings the game’s cinematic feel, fluid gunplay and kinetic sense of movement into the realm of online multiplayer. Building on the fiction and signature gameplay elements of the Max Payne universe, Max Payne 3 features a wide range of new and traditional multiplayer modes that play on the themes of paranoia, betrayal and heroism, all delivered with the same epic visual style of the single-player game.

Look for much much more from Max Payne 3 in the weeks and months ahead, including the next video in the Design & Technology Series and the official site launch.

    Whats with releasing good games for inferior consoles 1st? You guys better release GTA V on PC 1st since you gave MP3 to console 1st... So weak dude... Gaming is going down the drain with all these weak ass console ports that PC community has to suffer for. Make the game a release on a proper machine and then port it to consoles. Who cares if they get screwed on one game when every other game is tailored to them and they still --- and complain.

I LOOKED ON THE ROCKSTARGAMES.COM GTAV FORUMS AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE DISSING MAX PAYNE 3. HOPE YOU STILL INCLUDE BULLET TIME IN MULTIPLAYER, IF YOU DO, THAT WOULD BE GREAT!!!!! MY IDEA OF ADDING BULLET TIME TO MULTIPLAYER WOULD BE, WHEN YOU USE IT, IT WOULDNT SLOW DOWN TIME, IT WOULD JUST FOR COOL AFFECT AND TWIST THINGS UP A BIT!!!

                    @Ghost99xbox Thanks, we're glad you're looking forward to it

                    @NYPDMAXPAYNE Nice!

                    @kendalpwns We also would like the Max Payne 3 PC release to happen as close as possible to the console release date, it just wasn’t possible to get the PC version lined up day and date with the console releases, but we’re working to make sure it’s with you just a couple weeks thereafter

                        APS_313, u will not become a good marketing maneger, if they release GTA V before, HALF ppl will not buy MP3 ( me included) cause even after 4 yrs ppl still playing GTA4, these are the greaest R* games, and the fifth will be EVEN MORE BETTER.

                            im really excited for max payne 3 . it has the best graphics ive ever seen. me and my friend are really excited for max payne 3. i love what you guys did with the guns and graphics and animation like bullet time and diving and going prone. i also love what you did again with the animation like when you shoot somebody they fall realisticly and they react to gunshots realistic to. and if you shoot someone next to a window they fall through the glass. and i like when they get shot they react to the environment like falling through the window, falling into the wall. when they get shot they splat out blood. im very glad you will include multiplayer. i love the detail(from screenshots) on the guns, floors walls.

                                      Okay, they delayed it for a reason. It's not like they did it to piss people off. They want to get it just right, so everybody shut up and stop complaining! Good job Rockstar! I can't wait!

                                        I THINK IF YOU RELEASE GTA V FIRST AND MAX PAYNE 3 after that then you will make more money.
                                        everybody will buy gta v and when people got bored a little and want a new game then they will run for max payne 3..................
