Rumor: Max Payne 3 details surface from July issue of Game Informer

Tuesday, 9th June 2009 22:48 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Looks like the cover of Game Informer featuring Max Payne 3 is legitimate. We’ll keep it chalked as rumor for now, just to be safe.

Supposed details have already started surfacing from the July issue of the magazine.

Apparently, our hero is living in the skids of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and is addicted to pain pills which effect how the game is played.

Graphically the game is being compared to Uncharted 2 with “vibrant colors and fully destructible environments,” all thanks to Rockstar’s animation system and RAGE engine.

Urban battles in bad Latin American neighborhoods is expected, with plenty of weaponry and the return of Bullet Time.

Game will feature multiplayer, in addition.

Loads more over on Deeko. You should go have a look.

    i’d really like to see max taking on a few tough enemies and needing to use tactics and the environment to aide him rather than wave after wave or idiot ai dying to him

    well max too fallen to the “big hulkin bald chap teens love to control since he’s big hulkin and bald” criteria. To sell more copies, of course. I reckon the first two didnt exactly storm the charts

    Edit: Nevermind, read the article. Rockstar developing eh? Now it makes sense. Sigh.

    Crikey, you’re not kidding!

    Of course, I never played any of the previous games so I can head into this without doing the foaming and frothing thing. :-)

    Loved 1 and 2, but not sure about what I’ve seen thus far….too much like Uncharted to be Max Payne. and i LIKED his haircut…this is too much like John McClain… I hope they re-invent the slo/mo (aka bullet time) feature in a kick ass way..
