Max Payne 3 coming to Mac App Store June 20; price unknown

updated 12:39 am EDT, Wed June 19, 2013

Advanced game features multi-monitor support, 3D, more

The graphically-violent third-person shooter Max Payne 3 is coming to the Mac App Store beginning on Thursday, June 20. The game is reported to "include a number of advanced graphics options, scaleable high-resolution textures and character models, DirectX11 features, multi-monitor support and 3D," according to the announcement from Rockstar Games, and has exceptionally high Mac system requirements.

The Hong Kong action-cinema inspired series originally began in mid-2001 on Windows, with the Mac port arriving a year later. The iOS version of the original game arrived last year, and the Mac version of Max Payne 3 follows about a year after its original Windows debut. There has been no word yet on whether the Mac version will offer any additional content, but there have been seven add-on downloadable content packs accompanying the release, which comes eight years after The Fall of Max Payne, the second instalment (which was not ported to the Mac due to poor PC sales).

The game's advanced graphics -- its trailer (seen below) is taken entirely from in-game footage -- demands only very recent Mac models with substantive discreet video cards (512MB VRAM or better). The specific requirements call for a an Intel dual-core Xeon or Core series of 2.4GHz or later running OS X 10.7.5 or higher, with an Nvidia 8800GT or AMD Radeon HD 4870 or better. The game also requires systems running at least 4GB of RAM and needs 35GB of disk space.
