The latest installment delivers more of the classic elements and hyper-intense action that fans have come to love, while moving the story of Max in a new direction. “We’re starting a new chapter of Max’s life with this game,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “This is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation.”
The game will tell the story of a retired police detective embroiled in a world of corruption, turmoil, and violence. Payne is still out to avenge the death of his family in the franchises third installment. Max leaves New York behind and has Max double-crossed and away from home trapped in a city filled with violence where he looks for the truth and a way out of the city.
