Rockstar has released part one of of a new Max Payne 3 video series which focuses on the game’s multiplayer.

The video details the “core features of Max Payne 3 multiplayer,” which focuses on integrating signature gameplay elements such as Bullet Time into the modes Gang Wars and Payne Killer.

Gang Wars is the “flagship” mode, where players participate in story-based matches using warring factions from the single-player game. New branching storylines in the mode will change dynamically, and objectives will be based on the outcome of each round.

Players will also get a chance to play as Max Payne and his partner, Raul Passos in Payne Killer, a “blend of co-operative and competitive play.” Outnumbered by enemy players, Max and Passos will need to fend off other players using signature weapons, Bullet Time and painkillers in order to stay alive.

Below the break is the first look at the multiplayer. Enjoy.

Max releases on PS3 and Xbox 360 May 15 and on PC May 29.
