The gang at Rockstar have been very kind to us lately, dropping tons of L.A. Noire footage. Hitting stores on May 17th for the PS3 and XBOX 360, the game’s latest trailer shows off how your character, detective Cole Phelps will rise through the ranks. You’ll be able to move through various departments and as you solve cases your detective skills will increase. You’ll start as a traffic detective and work your way up to homicide, vice and arson. The trailer also shows off how your partner will help you get around the city and show you the ropes.
In terms of plot and aesthetic, the game will draw heavily from the film noir genre, sharing similar themes and visuals. And on the technical side, it boasts cutting edge global illumination technology as well as state of the art motion capture technology. The game continues to impress and with only about a month until release, make sure you get your pre-orders in because this one will be flying off the shelves.
