Rockstar Games has announced that Max Payne 3 is now available at retail stores across North America.
“With Max Payne 3 we set out to reinterpret the modern shooter,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “By fusing great gunplay seamlessly with an incredibly dark and cinematic single-player story, and the deepest multiplayer we’ve made to date, Rockstar Studios has tried to deliver something truly unique and amazing to play.”
Max Payne 3 picks up the story of fallen former New York City detective, Max Payne several years after the events of the original games. Close to washed up and addicted to painkillers, Max accepts a job offer of private security work in Sao Paulo Brazil protecting Rodrigo Branco, a wealthy businessman, and his beautiful trophy wife, Fabiana, in the hopes of an escape from his tragic past. When Fabiana is abducted while under Max’s protection, Max finds himself caught up in something much larger than a simple kidnapping, looking for answers on the streets of an unfamiliar city as his personal demons return to haunt him once again.
In a first for the franchise, Max Payne 3 brings the Bullet Time online in a range of co-operative and competitive modes that allow players to compete in free-for-all deathmatches, fight for the right to play as Max Payne in Payne Killer, or build out events from the single-player story in the dynamically branching rounds of Gang Wars.
Max Payne 3 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is in stores now. Max Payne 3 will release internationally on May 18, 2012, and for the PC in North America on May 29, and internationally on June 1.
