max3 Max Payne 3 Launch Trailer

You may not know this but there are games OTHER than Diablo III.  There is one in specific that you may want to sit up and take note of – Max Payne 3.   Today we’ve got the launch trailer for the title to share.  In it we get a view back to Max Payne’s past as he reflects on just how he ended up where he is now.   If you need a catch-up, here is a nibble about the game itself:

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.

Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time® and Shootdodge effects, full integration of Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games.In addition to an expansive single-player campaign, Max Payne 3 will also be the first entry in the series to introduce a thorough and engrossing multiplayer experience. Max Payne 3 multiplayer brings the same cinematic feel, fluid gunplay and sense of movement of the single-player game into the realm of online multiplayer. Using the fiction and signature gameplay elements of the Max Payne universe, Max Payne 3 features a wide range of new and traditional multiplayer modes that play on the themes of paranoia, betrayal and heroism, all delivered with the same epic visual style of the single player game.

We’ll get hands-on with the game for our full review just in time for the Tuesday launch.   Look for Max Payne 3 on shelves for Xbox 360 and PS3 on Tuesday the 15th, with the PC version hitting on the 29th of this month.
