Max Payne 3 Coming March 2012S

Rockstar Games is releasing Max Payne 3 in March 2012, the company revealed today.

The game picks up where Max Payne 2 left off, and follows Payne as he works private security for a wealthy Brazilian industrialist in Sao Paulo, and Payne must fend off gangs targeting his client. And do it in the series's signature slow motion "bullet time".

"Max Payne 3 gave us an amazing creative opportunity to evolve one of our most iconic characters," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games, in an official release. "We're excited to show fans a modern version of Max that pulls them back into his dark and twisted story."

This is the first Max Payne title to feature multiplayer. It will feature a reward and leveling system, clans and strategic load-out options.
