Videogame Max Payne 3 gets a trailer

Rockstar Games have revealed the new trailer for Max Payne 3 .

In a move that should hopefully wash away the sour taste left by the risible movie adaptation (in which Rockstar had no involvement), Max Payne 3 looks to be going back to the series’ gritty basics.

Payne’s no longer carrying a badge, and he's relocated from New York to Sao Paulo, where he’s working in the ‘protection’ business. Before long, another dame’s gotten him into a heap of trouble, and he’s shaving his head and heading out on a vengeance mission.

All the series' hallmarks are there: none-more-gravelly voiceover, immersive action, noir-y plots and plenty of firepower.

Check out the trailer here:

Max Payne 3 is coming to Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC in March 2012.
