Max Payne 3 Launch Trailer and Info
Tomorrow marks the release of Rockstar's highly anticipated Max Payne 3, so get ready for the action with the above launch trailer! If that doesn't get you in the mood for Max Payne, then maybe some info on Max's arcade modes will! Straight from the horse's mouth, here's what Rockstar has to say on the "Score Attack" and "New York Minute" gameplay modes:
Max Payne 3's Arcade Modes bring intense bonus shootout challenges to the single-player game experience - featuring "Score Attack" and the return of the classic "New York Minute" mode from the first two Max Payne games in explosive form. In addition to the thrill of besting your own top scores (and the scores of all your Friends and Crew members at the new Social Club), high scores also reward you with exclusive multiplayer avatars and XP benefits.
So after you've earned a Platinum ranking for your historic Score Attack and New York Minute runs from level to level, you will not only earn a boatload of XP, but also unlock coveted character avatars for Multiplayer Deathmatch like Fabiana Branco, Passos and more.
After you've completed any single-player level, you'll be able to replay it in Score Attack mode, where you gun for the highest score possible - acquiring points for each shot that hits its mark and each adversary you vanquish.
NEW YORK MINUTE
This fan-favorite bonus mode from Max Payne and Max Payne 2 returns as a frantic battle that puts one minute on the clock and awards you with additional time for each enemy that you kill.

So even though there's going to be a ton of multiplayer content, it doesn't sound like Rockstar has skimped on the single player either. If multiplayer is more your thing, then you may want to check out the new and improved Rockstar Social Club! Brought about during the release of GTA IV and now newly redesigned with even more features, the Social Club now boasts the ability to integrate with social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, as well as direct messaging capabilities via the all-new Friends system, News updates, and, specially made for Max Payne 3, the addition of Social Club CREWS where players can register, create and rally Max Payne 3 multiplayer crews! Don't forget to sign up with the XbA Crew before you snag your copy! Max Payne 3 is out tomorrow, May 15th, and if you're still on the fence about it, be sure to look for my review toward the end of next week.
