New Max Payne 3 details arrive

Rockstar Games releases new info on the shooter, game still in rapid development

Posted on
The news have been picking up recently on Max Payne 3, with release of new images and bits of information. Today, Rockstar Games sent over a fact sheet providing further details on the game.

Below are the highlights of the fact sheet, including the most interesting bullet points.

Story: Max Payne 3 is set eight years after the events of the last instalment. No longer a cop, Max is close to washed-up, drunk and addicted to painkillers. Without a job on the force, Max has left the greater New York area, and he finds himself in Sao Paulo, Brazil, working in the burgeoning field of private security.

Max’s latest assignment sees him protecting the family of Rodrigo Branco, a wealthy real estate mogul and his two brothers: Victor, a local politician and the youngest, Marcello, a party-loving Eurotrash playboy, along with Fabiana Branco, Rodrigo’s trophy wife, and Giovanna, Fabiana’s sister.

The story of Max's descent from vengeful, leather-jacket wearing detective roaming the alleys of New York to the broken, shaven-headed man out for justice on unfamiliar streets far from home is at the center of Max Payne 3.

Features:
- The combination of Natural Motion’s Euphoria character behavior system and Bullet Time adds a new level to Max’s classic shoot-dodge moves. Shoot-dodge is not a canned animation, but a natural interaction with the environment, as Max will reach out to the floor as he dives, and naturally respond to objects in his way if you attempt to dive into a wall or obstacle
- Max Payne 3 extends the concept of Bullet-Time to now include game areas of the game that will trigger set pieces involving Bullet-Time
- Bullet-Cams return
- Max Payne 3 takes the graphic novel panels of the earlier games and evolves them by utilizing in-game assets to create a motion comic-style approach
- James McCaffrey, the original voice of Max, is back. Not only as the voice of Max, but Max’s appearance, face and many of his movements in Max Payne 3 are all captured directly from James himself
- Max Payne 3 features an integrated cover system
- Destructible environments
- Partners and sidekicks will play a large role in Max Payne 3. Hundreds of hours of custom motion-capture were done for individual characters.

Max Payne 3 is in development at Rockstar Vancouver, with other studios also involved. It's set to release on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. No release date has been announced, though one might be expected soon.
