Raymond Chandler fans rejoice! The first trailer for L.A. Noire has finally been released by Rockstar. See it here, now:
L.A. Noire is an open-world mystery game set in late 1940s Los Angeles. It will see a simultaneous release on the PS3 and the 360, but no details for the PC have been announced. The game, developed by Team Bondi, was set to come out for the consoles back in 2008. However, due to numerous delays, L.A. Noire will be released early-to-mid 2011. Luckily, the wait should be worth it, as it has given the team the time to pack in over 20 hours of voice acting, real-time lighting effects and amazing graphical enhancements in order to immerse the player in a realistic Los Angeles of days past. It also features the voice of Aaron Staton, of Mad Men fame, as Cole Phelps, the game’s protagonist.
Check back in the (hopefully near) future for further updates.
