Max Payne 3 is ready to set the bar extremely high for the action genre. With the newest Design and Technology video, Rockstar shows us just how Bullet Time provides Max with the edge he needs in battle to eliminate small armies of enemies with lethal precision.
Bullet Time gives you the incredible edge during intense firefights to avoid enemy fire in graceful slow motion, as each shot you fire is placed with incredible marksmanship. Being one of the game’s core mechanics, you will find yourself using Bullet Time in order to escape from a variety of seemingly inescapable situations. Running low on Bullet Time juice? Don’t you worry your HardBoiled head, a few well placed shots will increase your stash maximizing your killing potential. Bullet Time fills based on your skill, precision of your shot, and risk level.
Max may find himself triggering Bullet Time on his own. This provides you with some outrageously inspired action sequences. That hook you see, yeah, you’re going tograb hold and fly into the air blasting away at 8-12 enemies. Be sure to thank Rockstar later.
Adding to the realism of Max Payne 3, is the attention of detail Rockstar is putting into the enemies you will face. Enemies dynamically interact with their injuries, or seek out cover while they call for reinforcements. These enemies will feel all to real, and react just the same.
Max Payne 3 is aiming to metaphorically blow your mind with its evolution of the Third Person Shooter genre. Be sure to look out for the game on May 15 in the US, and May 18 in the UK.
