THE BUZZ: Take-Two has announced an expected release date of March 2012 for Max Payne 3 and also released a few new screenshots.
“Max Payne 3 gave us an amazing creative opportunity to evolve one of our most iconic characters,” said Rockstar founder Sam Houser.
Take-Two’s official description of the game:
“Picking up where the release of Max Payne 2 from series creator Remedy Entertainment left off, Max Payne 3 is a true cross-studio collaboration between Rockstar Games’ global development teams. The game utilizes cutting edge technology for a seamless, cinematic action experience, incorporating the latest advances in Natural Motion physics and a brand new iteration of Rockstar’s own Rockstar Advanced Game Engine. The result offers highly-refined gameplay, with an extensive range of realistic weaponry, an intelligent cover system and sophisticated Bullet-Time mechanics.”
EGM’s TAKE: After numerous delays it’s good to see that Take-Two has finally given a solid release window to the game and hopefully it will live up to the expectations of long-waiting fans.
