Max Payne 3 – Design and Technology series

Max Payne is returning in Max Payne 3 by Rockstar Games. Payne has left New York City behind and is now living in Sao Paolo, Brazil working for as private security for a wealthy family. Payne is more cynical, more drunk and more world weary. 

This series of videos from Rockstar looks at the design of the game and gameplay. Some of the topics covered are the targeting and shooting of guns when in combat, movement and world animation and of course, bullet time which the series is famous for using. 

They don’t get into too many technical details here but it is great footage of actual gameplay and some cutscenes to kind of give you an idea of how the game will play. 

Max Payne 3 will be out in stores in March 2012. A more specific day has not been set at this time.
