Visual Effects and Cinematics, the latest video in the Max Payne 3 Design and Technology Series, focuses on what makes Max Payne 3 a uniquely cinematic action game thanks to a series of presentation innovations that move the game seamlessly from cutscene to gunplay and from one chapter to the next, resulting in an immersive experience that keeps the player locked in Max's dark and twisted story.

In honor of the highly-anticipated return of Max Payne in this May's Max Payne 3 we're giving one lucky Grand Prize winner the once in a lifetime chance to follow Max's trail with the New York to São Paulo Sweepstakes - an action packed trip from the gritty streets of NYC to vibrant São Paulo, Brazil – in an experience which includes:

You and a guest will start off with two nights and three days in Max Payne's hometown of New York City, where you'll spend two nights and three days at the Thompson LES Hotel in Downtown Manhattan - a worldwide epicenter of shopping, dining, and art galleries. But more importantly, you will get to go hands on with an extended pre-release gaming session of Max Payne 3 a week before it hits shelves on May 15th.

From there, you'll fly nearly 5,000 miles south and spend four nights and five days in São Paulo, Brazil where Max Payne 3 takes place. You'll spend four nights and five days at the chic Hotel Unique, one of the city's hottest hotels where developers stayed during the making of the game. You'll also get VIP passes to spend two days rocking that weekend at SONAR SÃO PAULO, the international festival of advanced music and art headlined by artists like Bjork, Justice, and Max Payne 3 soundtrack star Emicida. Visit for the complete line-up, and all of the details about this two day event.
