Max Payne 3 will be first game in the history of Max Payne series to bring multiplayer into the game, while making the multiplayer a balanced experience can be a bit of a challenge Rockstar is willing to go the distance and try and bring you the best experience possible. The Multiplayer will bring singleplayer favorites such as Bullet time and Painkillers into the mix too and with an interesting mix of game modes thrown in too this will definitely be one Max Payne game you won’t be putting down anytime soon no matter what platform you are on.
While Max Payne 3 has been officially announced to come loaded with a multiplayer we had no idea how it would turn out until now, with the latest trailer we see the first of the multiplayer experience of Max Payne 3; the game will not be like other third person shooters but will encourage players to take advantage of bullet time and possibly will be strongest point of the multiplayer experience. But throw in a variety of game modes and you have an amazing experience; these include what looks free for all, Gang Wars which is story driven team deathmatch (similar to operations from Killzone 3) where players take part in a story and have to complete objectives to carry forward and the last game type will be Payne Killer; where enemy players have to take down Max Payne and his partner Raul Pasos, if you kill either you assume their identity and the cycle goes on.
This is an interesting twist from Rockstar Games and can potentially be a great addition to an already fantastic game, I just hope that Rockstar does a good job in making the game as balanced and bug free as possible on its launch.
The game is releasing on May 15th for the PS3 / XBOX 360 and the PC so be sure to pre-order your game as soon as possible so that you aren’t left out.
