Rumors actually, from Game Informer, in my opinion one of the best gamimg magazines, and if not the best, the one that has the earliest previews. This is straight from QJ's: Some rumored details supposedly taken from the Game Informer feature have also floated up out of the Internet's depths. These haven't been confirmed yet, but according to Deeko and Shacknews, here's what the feature reveals: - In addition to being bald and bearded, Max is addicted to pain killers. - That pain killer addiction will affect gameplay. - The game is set in Sao Paolo, Brazil, with battles in "urban ghetto" locales. - "Fully destructible environments" and a cover system are in. - There will also be some "day and night cycles." - Bullet Time is now "more visceral and ultra-violent." - Online multiplayer is in, but no details. - Powered by Rockstar's RAGE technology Yup, he looks ugly. And... Brazil?! WTF, I hope they can add that noire atmosphere the former games had, not that I have anything against Sao Paulo (looking at you Cockroach), let's see what they can pull next thou.
