Max Payne 3 set for March release date

Max Payne 3 is set for a March 2012 release on consoles and PC, says Rockstar Games.

Developer Rockstar Games has announced a March 2012 release window for Max Payne 3, as well as confirming multiplayer functionality and certain story details.

The multiplayer mode, which is a first for the Max Payne series, will involve dynamically altered maps, with a levelling system, clan support and weapon selection all confirmed as core features.

The singleplayer campaign will meanwhile pick up where Max Payne 2 finished, with a shattered Max so haunted by his past that he flees to Brazil and gets a job as a bodyguard for a family.

Naturally, it isn't long before things kick off - gangs target the family and Max, refusing to see another family ruined, grabs his pistols and starts jumping through the air in slow-motion.

Multiple Rockstar studios are collaborating on the project, which will use Natural Motion physics and a new version of Rockstar's Advanced Game Engine.

A third-person cover system is confirmed, as is bullet-time.

Too right. MP2 was one of the coolest games ever! The lack of moody atmosphere disturbs me.

Sounds like Man on Fire to me.

Old fat bas*d Max doesn't even look capable of pulling off the moves he could in the previous games. It won't be slow motion anymore it'll just be slow.

Well if this is a 3rd person by rockstar then it better not just be a GTA clone and made for consoles with a poor PC port.

I loved both Max Payne games so far and really don't want to be dissapointed.

(Plus why does the picture make him look like a Bruce Willis wannabe?)

...Why does he look almost EXACTLY like Sam Fisher used to?

Huh...I had completely forgotten about this.
Cool, but shame about the long wait. Oh well, we've got Deus Ex: HR in the meantime.

Yep, loved the previous two, looking forward to this one.

Max is for me the coolest protagonist ever. I think that MP3 is going to be a huge disappointment for me. Good think that they can not ruin MP and MP2 so I'll be probably playing those right after release of MP3 to calm myself down.

Looking forward to this, I was a massive fan of the first game with the exception of the bloody dream levels
