7s.jpg Via the Shacknews forums, there's word of the release of Max Payne 2 modification, 7th Serpent, after what can only be described as a number of years in development.

The pedigree of these mod, which has been in production since 2003, is pretty darned impressive - as a random example, one of the musicians, Chad Seiter, "...has done work on the TV shows ALIAS, LOST, and the movie The Incredibles."

The mod itself is "a third-person shooter modification for the Max Payne 2 game engine thrusting players into a world of corruption, secrecy and vengeance as they control Vince Petero - the main character - who has been subjected to experimental testing and is left to his own devices in order to extract the truth from those who keep it from him." The screenshots look mighty impressive for a mod, especially for such a relatively unmodded game - so go dig out your copy of Max Payne 2 and check it out, forthwith.
