By Posted 6 Apr 2011, 09:34

We have some great news for those of you who are looking forward to Max Payne 3, as we have some fresh details on the game which is sure to put a smile on your face. The game has since been in development hell after being delayed after 2009, but it looks as if a 2011 release is still very much on the cards.

The game has just been revealed in the latest edition of EDGE magazine, and with it, a collection of previously unknown details for the game, as reported from VG247. The biggest of these by far, is the addition of an online multiplayer mode – although specific details on how this will work were not mentioned in EDGE’s report on the game. Just so you’re aware though, Max Payne 2 did not feature a multiplayer mode, so fans of the franchise will know how much of a big deal this is to have it included for Max Payne 3.

Other details include the return of bullet-time gameplay, a brand new cover system, a wheel based-weapon selection tool and wait for it, destructible environments – that’s what we’re talking about.

Unfortunately, the information didn’t reveal any details on when the game would be coming out. Our guesses, is that Rockstar are saving this until E3 2011, which kicks off at the start of June. We’re not sure about you, but we can’t wait to hear official details on the game.

Is Max Payne 3 on your shopping list this year, or have you lost interest in the franchise?
