Max Payne 3 trailer turns the heat up on Max

Rockstar Games has released a new story trailer for Max Payne 3 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, revealing further the trouble Max will find himself in. The third game in the series has been a long time coming, arriving in the UK this May, two months later than originally planned. The reason? So that Rockstar Games could make a better game. Read on to discover whether the extra effort looks like paying off.

Up to now Rockstar Games has largely kept the story under wraps. What we do know is that trouble eventually catches up with Max. He soon finds himself in Brazil working for businessman Rodrigo Blanco, whose wife has been kidnapped. 

Max Payne 3 Gang Wars multiplayer details revealed

The trailer reveals that, along the way Max has been tricked in some way or another. For us that spells all-out action, Max Payne style, as our dual-pistol-wielding protagonist takes on Brazilian street gang, in what looks like a worthwhile threequel to the series.

Max is older, balder and fatter. But take a look at the trailer and you can see that not even a bit of spare lumber can stop Max doing his thing. Max Payne 3 arrives internationally on 18th May on PS3 and Xbox 360, and on 1st June for PCs everywhere.
