With Max Payne 3 hitting store shelves tomorrow (or today at MyGames), we thought it would be a good idea to go back and look at the graphics engine that is powering the dark tale of revenge.
Rockstar San Diego released the RAGE Engine in 2006, with the first game powered by the new technology being Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis. The engine was evolved from the Angel Game Engine, which was acquired by the developer for iterations in the Midnight Club series and other ventures.
Since then the engine has powered Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Grand Theft Auto IV and it's subsequent expansions, Red Dead Redemption and now Max Payne 3. Take a look at the following screenshots, and see for yourself how this engine has evolved over the past six years.
Max Payne 3 will arrived on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 tomorrow, with the PC release coming next month.
