Almost 11 years after the release of the original Max Payne, its second sequel, Max Payne 3, is now available for pre-order on Steam, almost seven weeks in advance of its official release on May 29, 2012.
The game costs $59.99 to pre-purchase, and will come with a collection of downloadable content for those who buy before launch, as has become standard with many modern major releases. A list of pre-order DLC is below, though readers should note that the pre-order DLC offer might vary depending on what country you're in.
