Boom. That’s a megaton boom, baby. All for a trailer.

The game’s being made by Rockstar’s Vancouver studio, with help coming across from studios in New England, Toronto and London.

The video details how Max got his new job in Sao Paolo, as well as answering the question of how he went bald.

This is a ruddy great trailer that you can get below. Get watching, gringo.

Max Payne 3 launches next March for PS3, 360 and PC.

  6. SplatteredHouse

    @3: How many years would you guess have passed for Max, since MP2?
    I thought that was a really good trailer. I didn’t know what to expect when they showed his new look before, but this just might work, and I’m interested to see how it’s going to play :)

  10. noherczeg

    @6 I just said that this trailer didn’t bring back almost any feels to me from let’s say the first one. I do know that this is only a trailer, but they should have put in something for the oldschool fans too. I can’t even see there any bullettime effects etc..

    So this can be good in the end, but from only this material I can only guess, that the feel to it won’t match the predecessor’s thats all.

    #10 4 years ago
  11. HeavyD-Love

    ^ Huh? I suggest all you naysayers watch the trailer again, you’ll notice the following.

    1. They had the classic Max Payne voiceover.
    2. They had the classic Max Payne music.
    3. They showed Max Payne in his traditional look with black suit, hair, then shaving it off, it’s 10 years later, it makes sense.
    4. They showed FOUR (yes count em FOUR) firing shots going in slo mo hinting at bullet time.

    What more do you want for a first trailer?

    I think they did a great job. Yes it’s different, but they’re keeping true to the original WHILE ALSO pushing forward in a new direction. Respect.

    I don’t feel Max Payne noir in that trailer.

    Although i’m sure if it’s made by Rockstar North it should be a very good game.

    Or should i say a good sequel to Max Payne 2.

    #13 4 years ago
  14. triggerhappy

    @ Erthazus: Nah theres definitely no noir in there. But this game is now officially on my radar. A few weeks ago I had this down as Meh Payne. I was wrong.

    In the last couple of years Rockstar have saved a couple of games (RDR and LAN) from being average and given them the extra time to be polished up into 90% Metacritic averages. Even though the studios can still go bust afterwards it makes a pleasant change from Disney/Codemasters etc.

    So I reckon this will at least be well presented…

    #17 4 years ago
  18. Erthazus

    Yep. definetily, no charm at all.

    It looks like Kane and Lynch 3 or rockstar’s typical game with reskinned characters. One of the huge hooks for the first 2 games were the graphic novel / Film Noir stylish storytelling and it’s atmosphere.

    Everything is missing here. Just a typical your everyday 3rd person shooter won’t do the trick.

    Of course, thank god that it’s not a DMC situation, but disturbing because it’s still a rockstar North’s game and Rockstar = Quality

    #25 4 years ago
  26. Dralen

    It didn’t feel like Max Payne to me either, yeah it had the music and the original vo cast, but it doesn’t have the noir feel anymore. But hey, I’m sure it will be a great game.

    #26 4 years ago
  27. TerraZet

    The only problem is the story AND story telling will be complete shit. Lets take a look at the first two stories by Sam Lake.

    Max Payne 1: A detective with nothing to lose looks for his wife and child’s murderer while getting caught up in a world of organized crime. Ends with him avenging his best friend and family.

    Max Payne 2: Back on the force, Max dives back into past over a woman in the first game. The game ends with him getting over his families death and finally at peace with himself.

    I dont see how you can stretch that story into another game. The second game ended with closure and the original development team moved on.

    #27 4 years ago
  28. absolutezero

    To me it just looked like any other Rockstar game, like theres some written rule that every game has to have a guy behind a desk surrounded by goons.

    Maybe its Euphoria but they all just tend to blend in with one another after awhile.

    #28 4 years ago
  29. _LarZen_

    Looks good but they should just call it something else…this aint Max Payne as I remember.

  30. YoungZer0

    I see, a lot of you people don’t seem to be familiar with Neo Noir flicks like City of God. Oh well, gotta be leather coats, New York City and low colour saturation to be Noir for you folks, right?

    @13: Not made by R* North. Main Developer is Rockstar Vancouver. Then comes Toronto, London and New England.

    @27: Ouch. So you don’t see how a new place can also bring a new story? Did you thought this comment through?

    #30 4 years ago
  31. absolutezero

    Its barely a new story though, in fact its just Man on Fire.

    Actually why not just make a Man on Fire game? Oh because they already had the IP and could just shit out a white Denzel swigging from a bottle of KONG.

    #31 4 years ago
  32. Moonwalker1982

    What happened with Remedy by the way? Why aren’t they involved anymore? I haven’t followed the happenings, so that’s why i’m wondering.

  34. Moonwalker1982

    Ah man what a shame. They should have kept it,but then…Alan Wake probably would’ve never seen the light of day. A game i have yet to finish, i just don’t take the time for it.

    #34 4 years ago
  35. DSB

    Looks good.

    I hope they don’t try to “diversify” from the original game. Max Payne is one-dimensional, the story should be entirely self-contained, without any sort of nuance, and it’s supposed to be driven forward by the action.

    I fear they might try to reinvent the wheel, when people are perfectly happy with the ones they had.

    Personally I wouldn’t be very interested in a Max Payne 2½. Max Payne 2 was essentially Max Payne 1½. It was still entertaining, but it was hardly inspired in any way, shape or form.

    #35 4 years ago
  36. Patrick Garratt

    That looks to me as though Max is going to shoot a lot of people. I’ll play it.

  37. Moonwalker1982

    In MP1 i could never get over his horrible face, man that stuff was so weird. So much bad shit happening to him and he was smiling in a menacing or more like..ridiculous way.

  38. TerraZet

    @30 stop thinking you’re right about everything. You’re clearly up your ass, it reeks.

    Whats going on with Max Payne 3 does not suit his character at all, neither does it suit the ‘weird, mysterious and creepy’ vibe that 1 and 2 had


    #38 4 years ago
  39. Erthazus

    “Personally I wouldn’t be very interested in a Max Payne 2½. Max Payne 2 was essentially Max Payne 1½. It was still entertaining, but it was hardly inspired in any way, shape or form.”

    Agree 100%. I really don’t want Max Payne 2½. By the looks of it, it sure is not that.
    but still, i miss noir and stylish atmosphere from the first two games and as you said… Yes, i don’t want them to reinvent the wheel.

    @38, relax, he masturbates in front of his mirror all the time. Especially if you will say that new DMC look is horrible. After that you will see a giant post full of shit because you are WRONG!

    #39 4 years ago
  40. YoungZer0

    @38: You’re making this pretty easy for me, since you clearly don’t put any thought in your comments.

    “‘weird, mysterious and creepy’”

    You must be talking about the dream sequences, nothing really weird, creepy or mysterious about the games.

    Max has no reason to stay in New York. He lost his wife, his child, his lover. One of his best friends turned out to be his worst enemy.

    He has no reason to stay in shape, no reason to go on. Going to a completely different country makes sense.

    Why don’t you humour me and tell me what you think suits and doesn’t suit the character of Max Payne?

    @39: Cry harder. :)

    #40 4 years ago
  41. Maximum Payne

    I love the music brings up the memory but I have more Gta vibe at beginning and more Stranglehold vibe when shooting started.

  42. TD_Monstrous69

    This has been off my radar for so long, and now it’s back. I agree with Edo, it does remind me a bit of Man on Fire, but I loved Man on Fire, and thought this trailer looked awesome. Now I’m definitely looking forward to it come March 2012 (though I’m callin it now, it gets pushed back into May, just because this is what usally happens with their games) [GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire, need I say more]. Admittingly, I’ve never played the Max Payne games, so I hope for some HD re-release (on consoles) of the first two before this comes out, so I can maybe get some background on the story a bit more.

    If you don’t like it, don’t buy it, shut the fuck up, and stop complaining.

    I enjoyed 1 and 2 very VERY much, and I can appreciate what they’re trying to do with the series here (my points in post #11 as to why I’m satisfied with the reveal trailer), keep some old, yet bring in some new. It’s a hard balance for sure.

    If they produced a Max Payne 3 that looked more like MP1 and MP2, then people would be complaining that it’s not a full sequel, looks too last gen, and should be a download/digital title for less money. (although a MP1/MP2 HD download bundle would be fucking tits)

  53. Cygnar

    I don’t get what all the fuss is about. It looks decent, but it doesn’t go beyond my expectations. Maybe it is so exciting just because it is Max Payne, or more generally, a Rockstar game. Am I missing something?

    The story of the earlier games was excellent for a PS2-era action game, but that wasn’t enough for me–the gameplay became a chore after the novelty of diving around in bullet time wore off. I can’t expect the third game to be just like the first two, but it’s difficult being excited when the old games were so shallow from a gameplay perspective.

    #53 4 years ago
  54. DSB

    There’s nothing mindblowing about the trailer beyond the nostalgic reacquaintance, and it does look pretty old.

    I don’t think most people had a hard time getting through the old games, and personally I’d welcome some nicely engineered action, without neccesarily trying to take a bunch of writers way beyond their competence. Of course that’s also Rockstars achilles heel. Everything has to be hoity toity social realism these days, and how they managed to sell that as somehow being entertaining or high brow is beyond me.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out to be yet another utterly uninspired lullaby. But if they do stay true to the original, then I’m buying the ticket and taking the ride.

    Back when Max Payne came out, practically all third person shooter games involved nothing but dispatching hordes of braindead enemies, with barely any setting. Remedy’s title was at the very least above those. It was also so dark it was almost funny.

    Oh and it wasn’t PS2 era, it was end of millenium PC era. PS2 got a terrible port almost a year down the line.
