It’s no secret that GTA IV was a bit of a mess when it arrived on PC back in 2008, dropping frames on even the most powerful PCs at the time. It was one of the most CPU-limited titles around, negating multi-core setups and crippling performance.
Rockstar is the developer behind two very highly regarded games; GTA V and Max Payne 3. After the success of Max Payne, Rockstar are clearly taking lessons on how to make GTA V better.
Rockstar’s ultra-violent gun-frenzy Max Payne 3 is receiving pretty good press for its multiplayer. While the matchmaking and lobby system might be less than perfect, the gameplay lends itself surprisingly well to multiplay.
We announced the official Max Payne 3 PC system requirements on April 23rd and as you will remember they caused quite a stir.
Not long now until we can get our hands on Max Payne 3. It will be with PC gamers on the 1st June and console owners will get their hands on it mid-may. Exciting! But let me remind you that we had to wait nearly ten years for this sequel. So do we play it slow and savor it or relentlessly blast our way through it in a hale of gunfire? and what will life be like after Max Payne 3?
The game that brought us Bullet Time back in 2001 is getting its next installment and so far it looks hot. The PC version of Max is being developed in parallel with the game's console versions. Max Payne 3 for PC supports DirectX11 including tessellation, as well as a number of additional advanced graphics options and is optimized to run across a wide range of PC setups.

About The StoryMax Payne 3 begins 12 years after the events of Max Payne 2, with Max visibly older, more violent, and more world-weary from the events of his own life. Having left the NYPD, Max has been taking odd jobs in security and consulting, and when we find him he is providing personal protection for a wealthy family in Sao Paolo, one of the world’s deadliest and most crime-ridden cities. At absolute rock-bottom, Max discovers that trouble still dogs his every step, and he finds himself drawn into the brutal heart of the Brazil’s dark underworld.About The GameMax Payne 3 retains many trademarks of its predecessors; a focus on story and character-driven action, a large number of sophisticated weapons with dual-wield capabilities, Bullet-Time, an addiction to painkillers, mature themes and Max’s ever-present internal monologue. Max Payne 3 also utilizes Natural Motion and Rockstar’s own RAGE engine, working with brand-new particle physics technology to deliver spectacular, highly advanced close-quarters combat, an intelligent cover system, and constantly varied gameplay in every level.About BrazilBrazil is the fifth-largest country in the world, by area and population, and is notoriously known to house a number of the world’s worst drug traffickers, street gangs and kidnappers. The number one cause of death among the youth is murder.Sao Paolo’s young gangs are amongst the most violent in the world, and the most dangerous of those is said to be the Primeiro Comando da Capital. The PCC has organized prison breaks, prison riots, drug trafficking, highway robberies and kidnappings since it was formed in 1993. With one gun for every 75 people in the country and 95% of those firearms obtained illegally, Max will need every skill he has in order to survive.
