Max Payne 3 Announced

Submitted by on Monday, 23 March 2009One Comment

mp3_poster-1We toyed with the idea of reporting Max Payne’s return in the over the top literary style so accustomed with the series.

Something like: “Rain. I remembered the rain when the news of my return hit me like a drunk polar bear slamming its fury fists into the slick and dark enclosure …”

Then we realised it would take far too long. And it’s pretty tricky to work a quote from the founder of Rockstar Games into Max’s dark and noirish vernacular. We’ll just stick with the announcement.

This winter, Max Payne will return on multiple platforms – including the PS3.

Worthplaying led with the news that gruff-voiced and constantly wronged ex-cop Max Payne is due for a third outing towards the end of this year.

Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games, states:

“We’re starting a new chapter of Max’s life with this game. This is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation.”

Caustic and simile spouting as ever, this will be the first time that Rockstar Vancouver have brought Max and his venal and twisted universe to life.

Max Payne was already a profitable and respected franchise among the game community long before the recent Mark Wahlberg vehicle came about. Though greeted with a mixed reception, we’re sure the film will help the third game in the sales department and we’re personally looking forward to another chapter in the gritty and hyper violent life of Mr. Payne.

We’re off to practice our scowls while talking in metaphors.
