Max Payne 3 - Who is Max Payne?

After a nine year absence, Max Payne returns this week with another episode of his damned existance. To some gamers though, Max is someone they might not of heard of or played. So who is Max Payne?

Max Payne - 2001

3 years before the events of the first game, Max arrived home to his wife and baby girl to found them brutally murdered by a gang addicted to a new designer drug, Valkyr. Vowing to get to the people who created and distribute the drug. Max signs up a with the DEA and goes deep undercover.

When Max got too close to minds behind Valkyr, he was set-up and framed for the murder of his DEA colleague and best friend, Alex Balder.

So began his one man war and the majority of New York's organised crime and bent corporations.

The video below explains it better...

Max Payne 2 - 2003

Two years after the Aesir Massacre, Payne had left the DEA and was back as a Detective in the NYPD. Alfred Woden had kept his promise and kept Max out of prison.

Deputy Chief Jim Bravura, is now Max's boss and he has partnered him with the straight laced Detective Winterson. Whilst out, Max responds to a call to shots fired at one of Vladimar Lem's warehouses and soon he finds himself out manned and out gunned by a group of hit men calling themselves the Cleaners.

During the shootout, Mona Sax appears, alive and well and helps Max take out the Cleaners.

Follow the videos below to find out what happens.

So Max hasn't had the sunniest of lives, so far. So maybe its time he took some time in the sun himself...

Max Payne 3 - 2012

Not much is know for certain about the new game. Although the official site has this up for offer.

"For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal. No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out."

Max Payne 3 is out this Friday on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and following on PC in June 2012.
