Rockstar Games on Wednesday revealed the very first trailer for Max Payne 3, the company's next chapter in their popular gaming series which hasn't seen a major release since Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne debuted almost eight years ago.
Keeping with life's real timeline the game is actually set eight years after the last title and shows a different side of Payne in which his life has completely fallen apart, he's no longer a police officer and he's addicted to drugs and prescription drugs.
After leaving the police force Payne heads from New York to Sao Paulo where he works for a private detail protecting the family of Rodrigo Branco, a wealthy real-estate tycoon. When one of the family's members is kidnapped Max Payne goes on a rampage against the men who have kidnapped them.
As PCMag points out:
For veterans looking to return to the Max Payne series, Rockstar Studios seems to have made upgrades to the cover system and slow motion "Bullet-Time" mode, which slows down time. This similar style of gameplay was also utilized in Rockstar's more recent game Red Dead Redemption(known as "Dead Eye").
Here's the Max Payne 3 trailer:
Now we just need to wait for official release date and pricing details to emerge.
Are you ready to take on the world of underground crime and kidnapping with a new Max Payne title?
