Rockstar Games has released the launch trailer for Max Payne 3, which will arrive in North American stores for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 15th and in Europe on May 18th. The game is described as follows:
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.
