Explosive new Max Payne 3 trailer shows you what Max is fighting for

Rockstar has been teasing the third Max Payne for far too long, and after multiple delays (including one a month ago), it’s nice to see any new visual proof that the game exists. Today Rockstar dropped a new trailer for the game that detailed just how much Max’s current life sucks, and how much worse it’s going to get. Watch:

That looks suitably dark and moody, even in a place as sunny and seemingly fun as South America. Also, it makes Brazil out to be the most dangerous place in the world, even more so than East St. Louis. Max Payne comes out May 15 in the US, May 18 in the UK, though the PC version comes two weeks later.

    Actually Sao Paulo is not a sunny place at all. It's pretty gloomy and grey (because of the pollution, being one of the largest cities in the world, and the inconsistent weather - sun, rain, hot and cold everyday) just like in the trailer. Of course the game will probably focus on the slum sections and more criminal-looking places to make it grittier than it is but as far as I'm aware, the trailer is pretty accurate on the Sao Paulo look and feel.

    For 'made entirely from in game footage' read 'made entirely from in game footage and in-game cutscenes'

    i live in sao paulo and actually i'm very excited to play this game, obviously the city isn't 100% that way, but it looks good and at least a little simmilar.

    Awesome, and it keeps pumping me up for a game I'm already excited for ^^ ...Only thing that worries me about that plot-line, is that it feels like they could pull the old tired cliché that the husband of the kidnapped woman was involved, or even masterminded the whole thing. If that's really what happens, I'm gonna facepalm, hard.

    I loved the first one on PC so long ago. Played the 2nd one until the last(maybe?) level and my file got corrupted and would slow down to 1FPS for some reason. Never finished it but this is definitely on my radar if it's as tight a story as the other two.

    That actually looks like a Max Payne game. Some of the earlier looks didn't. Also, I fully support any trailer for a game that doesn't have dubstep.
