New Max Payne 3 Multiplayer Gameplay Video – Part 1


Rockstar Games has today released part one of a new multiplayer focused video series for their upcoming game, Max Payne 3.

Part one focuses on Rockstars efforts in bringing the best of Max Payne’s cinematic shooting, movement and narrative into an online environment. The video explains the core features of the multiplayer side of Max Payne 3 and focuses on how the signature gameplay elements have been integrated into multiplayer. This includes Bullet Time, and bringing gamers into the twisted universe in modes called Gang Wars and Payne Killer.

Max Payne’s signature special ability, Bullet Time makes it way across to multiplayer for the first time. It is based on line of sight and brings a whole new level of strategy to online play. This keeps the action fast-paced whilst allowing for intense, cinematic gun battles and is shaping up to be a real standout aspect of Max Payne 3’s multiplayer.

Gang Wars is the game’s flagship multiplayer mode. This mode delivers immersive, story-based rounds of matches using warring factions coming straight from those in the single player game. There is also new branching storylines which dynamically change objectives which are based on the result of each round.

Payne Killer mode gives players the ability to play as Max Payne along with his partner, Raul Passos. This mode is a mixture of co-op and competitive play. Players are outnumbered by their enemies and players must work together and use Bullet Time and painkillers in order to get through and survive.
