Max Payne 3 launch trailer paints a grim picture

Rockstar's latest hits stores next week

Rockstar has sent over the launch trailer for Max Payne 3 ahead of the game's release next week.


The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game launch on May 15 in North America and May 18 internationally, while the PC edition's out on May 29 in the US and June 1 everywhere else.

Here's the official blurb:

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.
