PAX East News: Max Payne Mobile
It should be no surprise that Rockstar Games is focused on introducing (and re-introducing) the Max Payne franchise to gamers new and old. What is surprising – at least to me – is that part of the Payne universe is extending to mobile.
Rockstar announced earlier today that the original title Max Payne will be released on for both iOS and Android based devices on April 12th and 26th respectively. The Rockstar team promises, "the full classic Max Payne PC experience... optimized for both iOS and Android devices," so players should expect some amped up graphics – especially on HD capable devices – "user-customizable controls" and Rockstars' Social Club connectivity.
The iOS version of Max Payne Mobile works on the 3GS, 4, and 4S iPhones, the iPod Touch 4, and all versions of the iPad, including the new iPad. At the time of writing this article, a list of supported Android devices had not yet been released.
