With just over a month until its release, the pre-order deals are starting to pop up for Max Payne 3. Steam’s overall price is isn’t the cheapest on PC (that honour goes to The Game Collection at £24.75) but because this comes bundled with the previous two games in the series you would actually end up spending around £37 in total were you to buy them individually elsewhere. As such it ends up making this a nice deal for those who want the entire saga.
There are pre-order incentives thrown in as well, including additional multiplayer skins, a shotgun, an extra painkiller for online matches, and the ability to customise your avatar to look like Max in the first game. Previews suggest it will be a satisfying action-packed adventure, although we’re still not sure about the location change ourselves. Still, not long to go before we know for sure now.

With the third instalment of the series now expected to finally land next year, this is an opportune time to relive the earlier adventures of Max Payne. Steam are running a special offer that will give you both titles for less than the price of a pint, and in doing so will save you around £7.50 if you were going to buy both titles from elsewhere, which is a hell of a saving.
Yes, the game engines may not have aged well, but what made Max Payne a fun and atmospheric action game, and what made Max Payne 2 an even better experience than the original, is still all there with the Noir style storyline and the Hard Boiled-esque action, and at this price it’s practically a steal.
