a new trailer for their eagerly anticipated next game, L.A. Noire. Based in late 1940's Los Angeles, it follows a cop as he battles corruption in the ranks, while solving a string of brutal crimes. The showstopper for this game is probably the facial capture technique the company has used, in order to catch every subtle nuance of the actors' faces as they deliver their lines. You can see a bit of it in the trailer, and the linked "making of" vignette above, and it really is quite startling. Whether this is a good or bad type of startling, we'll soon see. So it's L.A. Confidential, only I can walk around and shoot people? I'm so there.
L.A. Noire is released on May 17, two days before my birthday. Hint hint.
