Houser: Max Payne 3′s Multiplayer “Will Have Elements of Story”
Mass Effect 3‘s multiplayer has elements of story, but that’s because it’s co-op. Now, we don’t know what form Max Payne 3‘s multiplayer will take, so it’s probably premature to speculate as to what it means for it to have elements of story. Anyway, here’s what Dan Houser said to Variety.
We wanted to put some elements of single player into the multiplayer so the multiplayer will have a lot more detail and have elements of story in it and have a sort of an immersive quality. We think that’s something that is underexplored in multiplayer.
In spirit I think I agree with you, Dan, but I still don’t know what you’re talking about, so I don’t really KNOW if I agree with you or not. I’m sure whatever the hell you’re talking about will be interesting, though.
