Max Payne 3 Will Be True To Max Payne Fundamentals

News about a baldy-beardy protagonist and a cover system for the first time in the series have alarmed hardcore Max Payne that the upcoming Max Payne 3 might not be the sequel they've been waiting for since the release of Max Payne 2 in October 2003.

Rockstar VP of product development Jeronimo Barrera listened to the community's concerns and assured them that there is nothing to worry about as the new sequel will be faithful to the series' key features.

"While we've revealed the setting as São Paulo, the game stays true to all the fundamentals of the first two games, from the noir themes and visuals to James McCaffrey's iconic voice-over and even a version of the graphic-novel-style panels," he said.

Max Payne 3 is being developed by Sparkle Motion, but Remedy - the developer of the first two titles in the series - was consulted early on to ensure that the game's direction was set correctly. "Staying true to each core element of Max was always a major focus, and that's actually something that we discussed with Remedy during development, and they've been extremely supportive of our work."

Max Payne 3's story will take place over a few weeks, as opposed to Max Payne 1 & 2 whose events unfolded in a single night each.

Berrerra confirmed that Max will visits "some familiar locations" in Max Payne 3, but refused to give more details.

one single night???

"as opposed to Max Payne 1 & 2 whose events unfolded in a single night each"

The first Max Payne took place in 3 years... He even says that in the beginning of the game lol... from the death of his wife until the death of that woman on the helicopter in the end of the game.

"To make any kind of sense of it I need to go back 3 years... Back to the night the pain started"

All we play on Max payne is a story that already happened that he is sort of telling us (the gamer).

"stay true to each core

"stay true to each core element of Max"

Max Payne 3 takes place over a few weeks while the originals unfolded over a single night each.

Max Payne 3 looks like a completely different person compared to the other two games

I don't know what core elements of Max these morons are staying true to. Perhaps they mean it's going to have shooting and violence in the game just like the real Max Payne games had.

And yet

The game dosnt really look like a Max Payne anymore... looks more like a John McClane ( Die Hard )... and the story is from somewhere else which i cant remember... its all posted on which places everything is taken from... nothing really seems like the good old Max Payne anymore.
