The launch trailer for Rockstar's Max Payne 3 shows the various, uninviting scenarios which the titular protagonist will find himself in when the game launches next Tuesday, May 15th.

The launch trailer for Rockstar's Max Payne 3 shows the various, uninviting scenarios in which the titular protagonist will find himself when the game launches next Tuesday, May 15th.

The trailer sees Payne thrown into the clink, into a night club gunfight, into a rooftop gunfight, and into a spiral of self-destructive drug and alcohol abuse. In short: it's a game that's not going to be very liberal with the feel-goods. Unless you're using "feel-goods" as a euphemism for pills, because, oh man, there's going to be so many of those.

Check out the trailer below. If you feel like getting even deeper inside Max's addled mind, check out all our coverage on Rockstar's noir shooter.
