The latest Max Payne 3 Design and Technology video reveals the new visual effects and innovative cinematic techniques that Rockstar Games are bringing to the table in the long-awaited threequel.

Specifically, the video highlights the real time motion-comic panel generator that updates the graphic novel style cut scenes made famous by the original games, as well as a series of innovations that move the game seamlessly from cut scenes to gunplay, and from one chapter to the next. By placing greater emphasis on the moment-to-moment shooting action, and keeping the player locked into Max’s dark and troubled narrative, immersion is heightened and the action presented as one continuous event, devoid of loading screens and other interruptions.

Max Payne 3 will be released May 15th, 2012, and if you pre-order now you can pick up a bonus-packed special edition copy.
