Brand New Max Payne 3 Screenshots and Info

April 25, 2011, By Christian Davis

It’s great to see that after 8 years of being without Max Payne, that he’s coming back with a bigger and badder attitude. Rockstar has sent over a bunch of new information and screenshots that will get any fan excited for the next installment.

May Payne is no longer a cop like in the previous titles. He’s on the verge of being washed up, he’s an  alcoholic, and is addicted to painkillers. Now that he’s no longer a man of the law, players will find our protagonist in Sao Paulo, Brazil working as private security.

He’s tasked with 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. It’s safe to assume that things don’t go as planned.

Along with a new story comes new gameplay enhancements. The series’ signature bullet time is making a return and is now even better thanks to the combination of the Natural Motion’s  Euphoria character behavior system. Max’s body will move more lifelike when diving to the ground or taking cover for example. Bullet-Cams are also back giving fans that feel of a satisfying final kill camera.

Graphically the game looks fantastic and has this really dark, gritty tone despite it being located in beautiful Brazil. It’s easy to see that Payne is angry and out for blood. Max Payne 3 is coming to Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.

Check out the screenshots below. What do you think of the new Max Payne? Let us know in the comments.
