Max Payne 3, Now Available in Black & White

Taking a page from LA Noire's case notes, Rockstar's Max Payne 3 will on August 28 be adding something called "Noir Mode", which is a tidy term for "playing the game in black & white".

It fits with the game's noir overtones, I guess, but given so much of Max Payne 3 is spent in the ridiculously over-saturated Rio São Paulo, it seems almost a crime to rob your eyes of the city's lush colour palette.

The New Jersey sections, though? Well, they're just about perfect for it.
