Rockstar Games has revealed that Max Payne 3 will be including some more modern gameplay mechanics, such as a cover system and over-the-shoulder weapon aiming.
"We've introduced a left trigger, over the shoulder aiming feature that most games have, where you can sort of zoom in a bit closer and aim more precisely on your target at the expense of your ability to move around quickly," said art the game's director Rob Nelson.
Nelson then went on to talk about how the game will still be featuring the iconic bullet time from the original titles: "As far as the way bullet-time works now, compared to the way it worked in the old games - and what the greatest addition, enhancement is - it works pretty much the same."
Max Payne 3 is being developed for a release around March 2012 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Unlike the original Max Payne titles, it's being developed internally at Rockstar.
