Rockstar Games today released the highly anticipated first trailer for L.A. Noire, coming to PlayStation®3 in 2011.
Developed by Team Bondi, a new Australian based studio founded by Brendan McNamara of The Getaway, in conjunction with Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire is a dark and violent detective thriller set against the backdrop of Los Angeles in the post-war years of the late 1940s, the most corrupt and violent period in the city's history.
Based on groundbreaking performance capture technology that goes beyond traditional methods to render every subtlety and nuance of an actor's facial expressions and emotions, L.A. Noire is the first game to truly explore what it means to be a detective, offering players the opportunity to solve crimes through a blend of classic action, clue-finding and interrogation, allowing players to analyze every subtle nuance of an actor's performance in order to get to the truth.
Set in a perfectly recreated Los Angeles before freeways, with a post-war backdrop of corruption, drugs and jazz, L.A. Noire truly blends cinema and gaming.
Check out the first trailer for the highly anticipated L.A. Noire, made entirely from in-game footage. L.A. Noire will be available on PS3™ in 2011.
L.A. Noire is yet to be rated by the Australian Classification Board. Check the classification closer to the date.
