The guys over at Rockstar are known for their groundbreaking new titles. Recently, they’re known for such games as LA Noire and Red Dead Redemption. More than 10 years ago, they brought us one of my personal favorites, Max Payne. The dark, gritty detective story redefined the genre. Stuff like bullet time, which we now take for granted in action games, was first introduced in Max Payne. Max’s immersive story made him one of the genre’s first multi-dimensional characters, attracting loyal fans worldwide.
So it’s awesome to find out that Rockstar is bringing Max Payne’s original adventure in HD to mobile devices. Max Payne will have connectivity to the Rockstar Games Social Club and boast the same features as its PC counterparts – including HD graphics and high-resolution textures, taking full advantage of the latest mobile technologies, including incredibly customizable controls.
Max Payne redefined what a console action game looked like over a decade ago; now Rockstar is bringing that classic to mobile gamers. I’m looking forward to this one coming out, for sure. While no specific release date was specified, Rockstar has assured us the game will be ready before the launch of Max Payne 3 in March 2012.
