L.A. Noire, the groundbreaking new crime thriller developed in a special partnership between Rockstar Games and Team Bondi, will be available on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 on May 17th in North America and May 20th in Europe*.
Set amid the violence and corruption of post-war Los Angeles, L.A. Noire seamlessly blends crime-solving, clue-finding, car chases and shoot-outs with revolutionary new interrogation-based gameplay that will allow players to read characters’ emotions in order to reveal the truth. Players will take on the role of Cole Phelps, a decorated World War II veteran who rises through the ranks of the LAPD, solving a series of gruesome murders and other crimes that bring him face to face with the dark heart of Los Angeles during Hollywood’s Golden Age.
L.A. Noire employs ground-breaking new MotionScan performance-scanning technology, which utilizes 32 high-definition cameras to capture actors’ faces in 3D, transferring every aspect of the performance into the game, enabling players for the first time to lip-read in-game characters and to read every facial expression down to the finest detail.
*As soon as we have a confirmed NZ release date, we’ll let you know.
Update: NZ release date is the same as Eurpoe: May 20th.
