Max Payne 3 (PS3 / PlayStation 3)

Game Profile

For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal.

No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.

Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time and Shootdodge effects, full integration of Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behaviour system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games.

In addition to an expansive single-player campaign, Max Payne 3 will also be the first entry in the series to introduce a thorough and engrossing multiplayer experience. Max Payne 3 multiplayer brings the same cinematic feel, fluid gunplay and sense of movement of the single-player game into the realm of online multiplayer. Using the fiction and signature gameplay elements of the Max Payne universe, Max Payne 3 features a wide range of new and traditional multiplayer modes that play on the themes of paranoia, betrayal and heroism, all delivered with the same epic visual style of the single player game.


Developed by Rockstar Games for a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience
Advanced Bullet Time and Shootdodge and Final Kill-cam mechanics for stylish shooting action
Cutting edge aiming, targeting and animation processes for precise, fluid gunplay
A dark, twisted story chronicling the return of Max Payne, one of the most iconic characters in videogames
Tight integration between Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behaviour System and a brand new iteration of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) for lifelike movement and a new level of environmental awareness
A wide range of weapons rendered in incredible detail: hammers cock back, shells eject from the chamber and each bullet is individually modeled from the split second it’s fired to the moment of impact.
Advanced particle physics and destructible environments set the stage for dramatic and chaotic gun fights
New to the series, a compelling and addictive multiplayer experience to match the dark and relentless atmosphere of the single-player game
