With Max Payne 3 right around corner and the original Max Payne now on mobile devices – for $2.99, by the way – some are perhaps left to wonder what’s next. Well, how about Max Payne comics? Rockstar announced today a 3-part comic book series, written by Rockstar’s Sam Houser and Remedy’s Sam Lake and featuring art from Fernando Blanco, that will shed light on Max’s early years, the time in and around Max Payne and Max Payne 2, and even set up the events of the third game.
The series has always taken heavy influences from graphic novels, with its comic book styled panels, so Max shouldn’t have any trouble fitting in. The comic will be released digitally and in limited print editions. Rockstar says it will be available to read for free on the Max Payne 3 official site and other digital comic channels in the coming weeks.
It’s impressive, really, the types of games we’re seeing on mobile devices. Ones we’d previously not thought possible to cram onto tiny, mobile screens.
Even in today’s world of great mobile experiences like Infinity Blade II, it’s still pretty mind-blowing to know that Grand Theft Auto III can be played on an IPhone or IPad.
And these impressive, larger games keep coming, sometimes in the form of ports.
Today Rockstar Games announced Max Payne Mobile, which will arrive on IOS devices on April 12, with the Android version coming later on April 26. The game is said to be “the full classic Max Payne experience” and will include updated HD graphics, new textures, integration with Rockstar’s Social Club and customizable controls. A price for Max Payne Mobile was not announced, but we’re guessing it will priced similar to the mobile version of Grand Theft Auto III at $9.99, which dropped to $4.99 shortly after release.
