Rockstar is releasing Max Payne 3 in March 2012, the company revealed today.
The game picks up where Max Payne 2 left off, and follows Payne as he works private security for a wealthy Brazilian industrialist in Sao Paulo, and Payne must fend off gangs targeting his client. And do it in the series's signature slow motion "bullet time".
"Max Payne 3 gave us an amazing creative opportunity to evolve one of our most iconic characters," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games, in an official release. "We're excited to show fans a modern version of Max that pulls them back into his dark and twisted story."
This is the first Max Payne title to feature multiplayer. It will feature a reward and levelling system, clams and strategic load-out options.
