Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce that Max Payne 3 is expected to launch on the Xbox 360(R) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation(R)3 computer entertainment system and PC in March 2012 in North America and Europe.
"Max Payne 3 gave us an amazing creative opportunity to evolve one of our most iconic characters," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "We're excited to show fans a modern version of Max that pulls them back into his dark and twisted story."
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.
Max Payne 3 promises to deliver a dark, gritty action experience that is sure to satisfy newcomers and fans to the historic franchise.
This doesn't look exactly bad to me: [url] (11 minutes ago)
Or well... now I'm confused, lol. Probably not every single game at native 4K. Not sure if MS ever claimed that, didn't they say only their own titles? (19 minutes ago)
surprised if it's going to be this and of course the remaining missing info. However after all the "true 4K" comments by them it would be pretty stupid if it won't do it after all. (21 minutes ago)
@droezelke: Yeah but honestly... are you surprised? Sure it sucks that Jaguar will likely be in it, but those Zen rumors were too good to be true. Sure it's a doc from right after E3, but wouldn't be (22 minutes ago)
@droezelke: most CPU bound games are large scale multiplayer titles in my experience. There's a reason I'm still using a desktop CPU from 2011. (23 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: So, it will be only slightly faster than PS4 Pro, as the CPU is the bottleneck again. (32 minutes ago)
