Max Payne 3 sloooows Mother Nature dooooown with “Bullet Time”

But then you kick her in the face with your energy bullets!

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

Rockstar Games presents the first video of a two part special showing off Max Payne 3‘s multiplayer. In this video witness the cinematic third-person shooting action come to the online aspect, with modes and specialities that will be available. The highlight of the video is the implementation of “Bullet Time,” which when activated slows everything down in close range for ridiculous slo-mo gunfight body explosions. “Gang Wars” allows groups of players to play as one of these factions from the single player. Finally, the “Payne Killer” mode. In “Payne Killer” groups of players go up against Max Payne and his partner, Raul, whoever kills him assumes the role of Max Payne to eventually face the same fate. That last one is like Tag, but way cooler.

Max Payne 3 lands on 360, PS3 and PC in May 2012. ESRB Rating is pending, but expect it to be M for MAXPAYNE! (That was lame, I’ll stop.)
