While Rockstar has been slowly answering these questions, there's one question that have gone overlooked: what kind of mess did Max get himself in this time?
The "second official trailer" for Max Payne 3 sets up the story, which begins with the kidnapping of Rodrigo Branco's trophy wife, Fabiana, while under Max's protection. "As Max fights to uncover the truth behind the kidnapping, he is pulled deeper into a web of violence and deception with little hope of escape as street gangs, paramilitary forces and elite police units fight for power and influence over the streets of São Paulo, Brazil," Rockstar's official PR describes.
