New Max Payne 3 Screens Show Max Action

The newest Max Payne shoot 'em up features "drastic changes in setting and character design," in Rockstar Games' own words. We think these new screen shots of Max Payne 3 perfectly illustrate how drastic those changes are.

If you're a Game Informer subscriber, you're more than likely already familiar with some of these shots, already having come to terms with Max's struggles with baldness and adult-onset beer gut. Mr. Payne clearly has the triceps to double-wield a pair of almost any weapon and a carefree wardrobe perfect for thrilling bullet time dives.

For a half-dozen shots of Max Payne 3 in action, action set far from Max's old stomping grounds in New York City, check out our gallery of Rockstar Vancouver's Xbox 360 and PlayStation shooter.


    Fair enough, do something different. But why make 2 games set in around the same setting. Colours and everything. And then skip so many years ahead in the third and drastically change the setting and colour and feel of the game.


    @Jay: Just think of it like a reboot to the series name.

    Like what they've done with James Bond.

    Favelas in Brazil? nice locale, plenty of badness going on there, corrupt police, not far from NYC I'd say.

    haha, it's like Max Payne 3: The John Mclane Years! I just hope the story is compelling; the first one was written like a really good hardboiled fiction.

    It would have been nice to see Payne living in the underworld of a big city, I can't say I'm a fan of the South America/South-West Europe look.

    Max was in the region for you know, vacation. He's tired and wired from the first two sagas and is looking for some rnr. Too bad the locals won't give him the rest.
