Rockstar Games demonstrates the multiplayer in Max Payne 3 in a new gameplay video. The Max Payne series has until now been a purely singleplayer experience, but in this third chapter, we finally get to play with other players online.

The video below is the first in a special two-part series detailing the Max Payne 3 multiplayer mode, which is played in a third-person perspective.

Rockstar Games says it will “allow players to connect with a character they can see while still retaining full fluid control during gunplay.”

Max Payne 3 will be launching in May 2012 on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
