We can’t verify this for ourselves, but apparently the Max Payne 3 code contains – amongst other things – a list of what appears to be vehicles. Vehicles that many on dedicated GTA forums are speculating might actually belong to Rockstar’s upcoming third person title Grand Theft Auto V.
Of course, they might not, but it doesn’t take a massive leap to connect the dots.
We won’t host the file dump itself, but a quick check of those that have studied it suggests that there are nearly fifty cars listed in there, a handful of bikes, ten or so helicopter models, probably five planes (with some guesswork) and a good chunk of boats, trains and even a monorail.
From reading the forum linked below it looks like the list contains all kinds of information and technical data for each vehicle, including its name, type, wheel radius, even default dirt levels… Some of the vehicles even seem to carry weaponry, if the lists are to be believed.
The list, being in another game, almost certainly isn’t final even if it’s actually linked at all, but it does give some hope that the next GTA will have absolutely loads of vehicles. Apparently the same thing happened with Rockstar’s Bully.
In related news, our Max Payne 3 review went live yesterday. The game’s out on Friday here in the UK, and it’s rather splendid.
