The PC version of Max Payne 3 is "not a port" Rockstar has said, whilst also releasing a batch of shiny new PC specific screenshots.

The publisher says the game has been created for PC to "run beautifully straight out of the box" and will take full advantage of everything PCs have to offer.

"We're proud to say that Max Payne 3 will support Direct X 11 features including Tessellation," explains a Mas Payne 3 fact sheet released by Rockstar. "This means a higher frame rate, greater visual fidelity, precision mouse and keyboard controls, a full suite of customisable visual and control settings, and optional 3D functionality for an even greater sense of immersion."

Furthermore, Rockstar says it is aware that many PC gamers don't use cutting-edge equipment so Max Payne 3 has been created to run well on a "a vast range of hardware configurations".

Max Payne 3 will be released for PC on June 1.
