Rockstar Games today announced that Max Payne 3 is expected to launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in
March 2012. This comes nearly ten years after the release of Max Payne 2, which was a hit with both fans and critics alike.
“Max Payne 3 gave us an amazing creative opportunity to
evolve one of our most iconic characters,” said Sam Houser, Founder of
Rockstar Games. “We’re excited to show fans a modern version of Max that
pulls them back into his dark and twisted story.”
Max Payne 3 continues the tale of former New York City detective, Max Payne. 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.
