New Max Payne 3 Screenshots, Same Old NYC

on March 17, 2012 1:48 PM

Max Payne makes a return to his old stomping grounds in a quartet of new screenshots for Max Payne 3 — or, as the state of Max’s hair and hideous paisley tie that only a cop could love might imply, this may be a flashback to before Max moved to Brazil, the game’s new setting.

In any case, the shots look great, showcasing the beleaguered cop and his noirish world in gritty cinematic detail. We get a look at some of the series’ recurring themes as well: guns, bullets, and guns which are firing bullets. Check out the gallery after the break, and save the date for Max Payne 3’s release May 15th.

Sto Austin is the man. Period. When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
