Just announced, Max Payne 3, already has a projected release date. Fans will get to experience the next chapter in the Trilogy as former detective, Max Payne, faces his internal demons yet again. It is expected to launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in March 2012 in North America and Europe, with a new engine, mechanics and multiplayer.
The story is described as follows:
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.
Remedy has teamed up with Rockstar games to bring some brand new tech, and life into the popular series. It will feature the latest revision of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine, which is the next level from the one used in LA Noire. Also, new to the series is a multiplayer component which comes with traditional multiplayer modes as well as a deep reward and leveling system, persistent clans and multiple strategic load-out options, similar to most shooters out today.
I am personally very excited for this as the first two games were a large part of my youth and the introduction of bullet time in a game was quite ground-breaking. At least I have time to beat all the games released this year, March will come too fast though.
