A mod for the shooter Max Payne 3 from Rockstar Games was recently released, aimed at people who have not yet come to terms with the change in the appearance of the protagonist of the series after the very first part.
Recall that in “Max Payne” Max Payne had the face of the creative director of the Remedy studio Sam Lake (Sam Lake), in the second part – actor Timothy Gibbs (Timothy Gibbs), and in the third – the constant “voice” of the hero James McCaffrey (James McCaffrey).
Modder AlexSavvy apparently missed the old Max Payne look so much that he decided to add it to Max Payne 3. The game already has an Easter Egg with the original look, but the enthusiast went one step further.
Modification Sam Lake Mod gives back the face of Sam Lake to Max Payne in Max Payne 3. The new “head” is fully integrated into the game while maintaining animations and materials, as well as adjustments to all storylines, hairstyles, and costumes.
Altogether AlexSavvy replaced 98 models and 66 textures. The result of his work can be estimated by looking at the screenshots below or gameplay videos YouTube channel modder. One of the videos will be attached below the gallery.
Sam Lake Mod can be downloaded from the website Nexus Mods. The author warns that the mod was created for a single player mode (face does not change in pre-rendered videos) – AlexSavvy does not recommend playing with it in multiplayer mode.
Max Payne 3 was released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in May 2012. As of March 31, 2013, over 4 million copies have been sold. The developer of the first two parts, Remedy, is currently preparing a remake of both games.
