has released another installment in its design and technology series of videos for Max Payne 3
that focuses on the game's visual effects and cinematics. More importantly, we get a first glimpse into Rockstar's custom-built comic panel generator that dynamically uses in-game footage in real-time. This results in a flawless transition between the comic panel presentation of cinematics and actual gameplay. Even better, gamers won't experience any loading screens when switching from cinematic to in-game action. Other impressive features include the highly-detailed and destructible environments and unique reload animations for every weapon.
Max Payne 3
will be available on May 15 in North America and May 18 in Europe for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Windows PC version will be released later on May 29.
