The award-winning Max Payne franchise put players in the role of Max Payne, a hard-boiled New York City detective with a penchant for violence, out to avenge the death of his family. The latest instalment delivers more of the classic elements and hyper-intense action that fans have come to love, while moving the story of Max in a new direction.
"We’re starting a new chapter of Max's life with this game," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games." This is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation."
