Rockstar Games Announces Max Payne 3 Now Available for PC
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO) is proud to announce that Max Payne 3 for PC is now available worldwide at retail and via digital download.

“Max Payne’s roots are with the PC community, so it was essential to us that Max Payne 3 live up to that heritage,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We’re proud to deliver the PC community the next installment in Max’s dark and twisted journey.”

Developed in parallel with the critically acclaimed console versions, Max Payne 3 for PC delivers the ultimate Max Payne 3 experience, supporting a wide range of PC specifications, plus advanced graphics options, scalable high-resolution textures and character models, DirectX11 features, LAN support, multi-monitor support and stereoscopic 3D compatibility.

The Max Payne series is known for its groundbreaking combination of third-person shooting and fluid movement to create choreographed combat with a Hong Kong action movie aesthetic and a distinctly noir atmosphere.

Max Payne 3 is the story of former New York City detective, Max Payne. His life in ruins and unable to move on from the tragic events of years past, Max looks for a new start working private security with an old friend in Săo Paulo, Brazil. When the wife of his employer is kidnapped by a street gang while under Max’s protection, Max’s life spirals out of control as the factions of a dangerous and unfamiliar city close in on him, conspiring to keep Max from the real reasons behind the kidnapping and his part in a much larger conspiracy.

Max Payne 3 features an all new multiplayer component that brings the series’ signature combination of precise shooting, fluid movement and Bullet Time™ online in a range of co-operative and competitive modes. In addition, it features Crews, persistent clans of friends that can play together online, building alliances and rivalries, while tracking progress and Crew Feuds through Rockstar’s online hub, the Rockstar Games Social Club. Crews extend across platforms and across game titles, with Crews created within Max Payne 3 ready and available for players in Grand Theft Auto V and other future titles.

Max Payne 3 is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
