The news for Rockstar's latest shooter is heating up!
One of the small downsides to the inevitable blog hiatus that stars next week for me is missing out on the chance to bring you loyal followers reviews of some of the biggest entertainment releases around just days after release. When I do return, though, Max Payne 3 will be one of the first titles I'll deal with, specifically because Rockstar's new third-person shooter is looking to be one of the best games of 2012. We've found out some exciting news about the game's 360 version, too: it will be shipping on two discs, the first containing the first half of what promises to be a massive single-player campaign and the full multiplayer modes and the second disc the final missions of the storyline. It's rare that we need two discs to fit in all of the campaign content unless a game is huge (Mass Effect 3, The Witcher 2 and L.A. Noire being the most notable recent examples), so that is definitely very exciting news for us as gamers. The PS3 version will ship on one Blu-Ray disc, but we at least know we have a big undertaking in store here as per usual for Rockstar Studios. Max Payne 3 ships on May 16th, and you'll be able to see my full review shortly after On-Screen returns on May 25th!
