Rockstar Games made two crowd-pleasing moves involving Max Payne 3 this past week. The first being the revelation that the third installment will not, I repeat, will not use Games for Windows Live, and the second being the release of Max Payne 3's official debut trailer!

Rockstar Games took to Twitter this past week to ensure fans that Max Payne 3 will not use Microsoft's Games for Windows Live after a number of gamers complained about the difficulty and problems that arose from using the. service.

Also hitting the interwebz in recent days is the official debut trailer for the much-anticipated game, which shows off the brand-spanking-new storyline and features incorporated into the game, including over-the-shoulder zoom aiming and cover mechanics, and other action sequences characteristic of the gritty character. You can check out the Max Payne 3 launch trailer below.

Set eight years into the future, Max Payne is set to reprise his role as an ultra-badass. While he is no longer a member of law enforcement, Payne will head to Sa Paulo, Brazil in Max Payne 3, where he will take on the job of security enforcer for a South American real estate mogul.

"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," is how the game is described by an official Rockstar Games synopsis for Max Payne 3. "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 will officially hit store shelves on May 15th for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 game consoles. A Windows PC version of Max Payne 3 is slated to go on sale on May 29th.
