Max Payne 3 Launch Trailer, Plus New Details on Arcade Game Modes
The official launch trailer for Max Payne 3 has arrived, preparing you for the game’s release in a week’s time. Set against the classic musical themes from the previous titles, witness Max’s descent into the seedy underbelly of São Paulo, a far cry from the sky scrapers and snow of New York.
For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal. No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out – Amazon
Rockstar have also revealed a number of extra game modes that are available to play in the single player mode, Score Attack and New York Minute. Both of these modes tie into the new Clubs feature of Rockstar’s Social club, rewarding players with XP and exclusive multiplayer avatars.
Score Attack offers up a fast and frantic experience which rewards players for accurate shooting and quick movement, a mode which will be familiar to fans of The Club (Bizarre Creations, 2008), where as the New York Minute mode (returning from the previous titles) puts Max against the clock as you gain additional time for each enemy that you kill. For more details on these modes, check out Rockstar’s website.
It’s certainly going to be interesting to see how Rockstar have taken up the reigns of the series from Remedy, though all signs are pointing towards this latest title being a worthy sequel, expect our review at the release of the title.
Max Payne 3 arrives May 15th in North America, May 18th in Europe for the Xbox 360 and PS3, with a PC release following on May 29th in North America and June 1st in Europe.
