By now, if you don’t know what’s in store for Max Payne 3 when it launches next week, you must have found one of the largest rocks on the planet to live under.
But Rockstar doesn’t mind – the developer is here to bring you up to speed with the upcoming sequel, and what better way to do that, than with this shiny new official launch trailer?
For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal. No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.
After what feels like years of waiting, Max Payne 3 is finally headed for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 next week, May 15th in North America and May 18th in Europe and other regions. Check with your local retailer for pre-order opportunities, if you’re lucky there might still be a collector’s edition for you!
