L.A. Noire Trailer Brings the In-Game Drama

Rockstar’s 2nd most secretive project after Agent is L.A. Noire, which is due in Spring 2011 for the 360 and PS3. And just in time, we finally get some in-game footage in this new trailer of the detective thriller. In case you forgot (and who could blame you) players will work to solve a series of murders. Judging from the dramatic trailer which reminds me of a movie trailer with all the one-liners designed to make you wonder what the hell is happening, the game will be heavy on the dramatic flair. The facial animations are pretty impressive, I must say, although a few are in the valley dubbed Uncanny.

Well, there you have it. What do you think? Is this on your radar? Rockstar has let this game go largely unnoticed, but I have a feeling the hype machine is about to ramp up. Are you interested?

  1. This is one of a handful of games where I would describe the voice talent as actually acting instead of just reading lines, I like it.

    The facial animation really does make a big difference.

  2. I have to say that the trailer definitely peaked my interest. But as with all new games I have to come to terms with the fact that I am a broke senior in high school with more important things, like not failing english.

  3. I swear I recognize the main character from some movie. Gaaah who is it?!?!?!

    Anyway, this looks like a cool new game. I just don’t think I’ll have enough money for another game, although I’m sure it’d be worth it.

  4. Saw this on GI earlier and was blown away. I don’t know if you guys read the GI cover on this earlier this year, but explained the process they went through to get those facial animations and it was very interesting. I’m definitely picking this up.

  5. Meh. Give me RDR for PC first. Then you can work on making your Mafia-era over-the-top-but-still-awesome game. I’m sure it will be fantastic.
