With its release (in the U.S.) coming this Tuesday (May 15), Rockstar Games released the official launch trailer for the third installment of their “Max Payne” game franchise.

The story follows the troubled and aged anti-hero through the shadowy depths of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Working as a private security guard for real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, the now pill-addicted Max finds himself reliving the past as he is pulled back into the life he tried so hard to bury. We are once again reintroduced to the Max Payne character, but this time a darker and cynical complex is revealed through Payne’s introductory monologue.

“Max Payne 3” drops May 15th for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Order your copy now, over at Amazon.com.
