New: Multiplayer

Rockstar introduced multiplayer into their games with GTA IV, and their approach to online shoot-outs has evolved steadily through Red Dead to become what you'll be playing in Max Payne 3. A mix of traditional game types and "gang wars", it'll allow players to pull off any and all moves from the single player missions, including bullet time and shoot dodge.

When you initiate bullet time, any players in your line of site will experience slowdown as you pump them full of lead. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to sample any multiplayer at PAX, but the third person, cover-based shooting may just lend itself perfectly to online play.
