Max Payne has been missing for six years and he’s finally coming back, sans the Wahlberg. Rockstar Studios is hard working on making another game in the popular Film Noir-styled third person shooter series after a long absence of the series for over half a decade. The game is slated to be released later this year on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Windows PCs, but it looks like he’s following in Sam Fisher’s footsteps and had a makeover
A spanish gaming website ‘Ulo Jogos‘ has scans of the upcoming issue of Game Informer focusing on everyone’s favorite video game antihero cop, but the years have not been good to Max. Pictures of the titular character show him wearing a dirty wife-beater, a tan pair of slacks, and lacking a lot of hair on the top of his head. Someone get the man some Rogaine!
There’s a reasoning for this, apparently 12 years have passed since the last game and the new one, leaving Max worse for wear and looking like a stepdad on a bad sitcom. The story has Max out of New York and the NYPD, instead working as a private security guard for a rich family in Brazil. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Much more about the game, including more on the story, and the game’s mulitplayer can be seen in the July issue of Game Informer available, or soon to be available, at your local Gamestop or EBgames.
