Next week marks the long awaited return of Rockstar's hardboiled detective, Max Payne. Why not prepare for the game by watching this bloody launch trailer?

In the new trailer, a beleaguered Max Payne shares some of his life philosophy. "The way I see it, there's two types of people. Those who spend their lives trying to build a future, and those who spend their lives trying to rebuild the past." Payne falls into the latter category, but explains he's trying to move on from his tragic history. The first step? Shooting a ton of dudes in this trailer. Looks like things are off to a good start. 

Max Payne 3 will be available on May 15. Learn about Max Payne 3's multiplayer in this informative gameplay video.
