Rockstar has released a story trailer for Max Payne 3, which reveals the “web of intrigue” building around our jaded hero, starting with the kidnapping of Rodrigo Branco’s wife, Fabiana who was under Max’s protection. As he fights to uncover the truth behind the kidnapping, Max is pulled deeper into a vortex of violence and deception with little hope of escape as street gangs, paramilitary forces and elite police units fight for power and influence over the streets of São Paulo, Brazil. Watch for yourself below. Max Payne 3 is out March 15 in the US and May 18 in the UK for PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version arrives in stores May 29 in the US and June 1 in the UK.
