Max Payne Brings the Pain in New Trailer

by on February 16, 2012

Max Payne 3Apologies for what is undoubtedly quite a terrible pun in the title there, but I couldn’t resist. It was just too tempting not to.

Below-par word play aside, Rockstar have released a brand new trailer for Max Payne 3 which delves a little bit into the story that surrounds the copious amounts of gun play. The game will follow Max as he attempts to rescue the wife of his employer, Brazillian business man Rodrigo Branco, who has been kidnapped. Max will be given plently of opportunity to dive slowly through the air whilst dealing with street gangs, paramilitary forces, and elite police officers.

You can check out the full trailer below. Is it just me, or does the trailer have a slight Die Hard vibe about it? Especially the way in which Max (least I think it’s Max) says “Just another day at the office”.

Max Payne 3 is due for release on May 18th for PS3 and Xbox 360, and June 1st for PC.
