Rockstar Games has launched a behind-the-scenes video of Max Payne 3, the third-person shooter game that started its series in 2001. Max Payne is well known for using a slow-motion “bullet time” effect. The story of this game is that Max Payne has left New York to work in São Paulo, Brazil in private security. Things go wrong and Max Payne ends up having to fight through the criminal underworld.
The video below is from Rockstar’s Design and Technology series which explains how the gameplay works such as artificial intelligence, bullet-time effects, and motion capture. Max Payne 3 is expected to be released in March 2012.
