Max Payne 3 is the follow up to the Xbox and Playstation 2 game Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne.
According to Sam Houser, co-founder and president of Rockstar Games, the game will start a new chapter in Max’s life. “This is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever.” Having left the city of New York Max has “drifted from bad to worse.” The press release continued to reveal that Max has been double-crossed and is searching for the truth.
Max Payne is set release on May 15th for the US and May 18th for the EU for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC
