Max Payne 3 is the first game in the series not developed by Remedy Entertainment, who are more than busy enough right now finishing up the action-focused, downloadable Alan Wake's American Nightmare. That left the job of updating the series' gameplay and graphics engine to Rockstar. The developers are promising a cutting edge shooter -- a bold claim considering that gunplay hasn't traditionally been the most solid element of Rockstar's games (see: Grand Theft Auto IV, L.A. Noire). Can they deliver on the promise? What do you think?
Offering fans the chance to appear in Max Payne 3 is both a cool promotion and true to the series' history. After all, Max's face in the classic games is modeled on Remedy's own Sam Lake. So put on your best scowl, and maybe we'll see you online. Good luck!
Max Payne 3 releases March of 2012 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
