A new Max Payne video has emerged circling around the multiplayer aspect and Bullet Time when used in online multiplayer.
” Part Two focuses on Gang Wars, which uses events from the single-player game as narrative starting points for matches with a dynamically shifting storyline based on the outcomes of each round; and some of the features that allow players to form grudges and alliances, such as Vendettas and the ability to join Crews; and Max Payne 3’s range of multiplayer special abilities’ called Bursts, including Bullet Time.”
Vendettas seems to be one of the biggest “standouts” as getting shot by the same player twice will create a marker on your map. Specifically, it highlights the location of the player that killed you, giving you a chance at earning bonus XP by revenge. However, if that player kills you for a third time, not only do they steal an additional kill, but they also earn your bonus.
Burst will also be a huge aspect, and is possibly the most innovative online experience to date. As you build adrenaline you level up your burst meter. Each level within your burst meter allows you a clear advantage during game play. Double Dealing is one, causing the player you kill to drop a live grenade, seamlessly killing anyone near them. A few other specials are mentioned in the trailer below.
By now, there shouldn’t be a reason you’re still undecided in owning this title. Max Payne 3 is a promising thrill ride. Watch the trailer below to understand exactly what you’d be missing out on!
