Before Rockstar Games launches Max Payne 3 on May 15, fans will get a chance to take an early crack at the game before flying down to Brazil for the Sonar São Paulo music festival. The contest is up and running now; you just need to sign up either through Rockstar Social Club or the game's official Facebook page. Contest entry is open until April 9, and you must be 18 or older to participate.
The winner will first fly to New York City, where he or she will play a "pre-release" version of Max Payne 3. The gaming will be followed by a trip down to Brazil -- much like Max's own journey in the game, only without the ridiculous body count and drug addiction -- and access to the Sonar São Paulo music festival. The trip will then conclude back at home, with a customized Xbox 360 console, a one-year Xbox Live Gold subscription and 1,600 MS Points. In addition, 10 runners-up will nab themselves a Max Payne 3 prize pack, one year of XBL Gold and 1,600 MS Points.
