M.A.Y Noire

A new trailer for Rockstar’s crime thriller, L.A. Noire, was revealed today and aside from looking remarkably lifelike, it ends with the game’s release date of May 17th for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in the US, 20th in Europe. Putting you in the shoes of by-the-book detective Cole Phelps, L.A. Noire is as much about solving crimes as it is about realistic human interaction and Rockstar have considerably upped their game with facial animations and voice acting – two things that they’ve always been credited for doing incredibly well. But the subtle ticks, slight twitch of the lips or furrowed brow seen in the previews of L.A. Noire, including the new one found here, would allude to it not only being head and shoulders above everything that’s come before but also a game with a release date that other publishers would want to steer clear of!

The official press release reads as follows:

“A dark crime thriller, L.A. Noire plays out across the various ‘desks’ of the LAPD, including Traffic, Homicide, Vice and Arson, each desk posing unique challenges and revealing a new side to the Los Angeles criminal underworld. Trailer 2 focuses on Cole’s experiences working these desks, including a series of potentially linked murders and the desperate pressure to find the killer or killers and bring them to justice.”

Now that sounds pretty damn good and an experience relatively new for a Rockstar game. Don’t expect to mow down pedestrians or pepper anyone you please with bullets, oh no. Treat L.A. Noire like Hotel Dusk meets Fahrenheit with a hint of GTA… Awesome!
