L.A. Noire Story Trailer
Cole Phelps is a brand new recruit to the LAPD. He works his way up the ranks to becoming a homicide detective in the matter of a few busts. “The more successful Phelps becomes as a detective, the more dangerous the world around him becomes,” was a quote from Brendan McNamara, head of Team Bondi which is developing L.A. Noire. “The story of LA Noire goes beyond simply catching one killer. There is a much larger story that will reveal itself as you move from desk to desk that deals with the corruption at the heart of Los Angeles in 1947.” Brendan went on to add that the story of L.A. Noire will focus quite a bit around Cole, who is a Silver Star awarded war hero from the Battle of Okinawa. His dark past begins to show through and the inner battle that Cole will be dealing with is the real story of L.A. Noire. The story trailer was made entirely up of gameplay footage, and features some of the best mo-caps we have seen in a long time.
The end of the trailer does confirm the release date that has already been announced. May 17th will be the day that you will be able to uncover the story of one of Rockstar’s most ambitious titles to date.
