LA Noire: new trailer released

Rockstar provides a fresh peek into its atmospheric ’50s crime drama, this time focusing on your partners at the LAPD and the game’s ranking system.

The latest in a generous series of LA Noire trailers has been launched this afternoon. This one gives some insight into the rise of Cole Phelps from uniformed cop to high-ranking detective. On the way, we meet the assortment of partners he works with at the LAPD, including his showy vice sidekick, Roy Earle, who has a touch of the LA Confidential Kevin Spacey about him.

In the game, Phelps must solve a series of brutal crimes, with players using interrogation sequences to puzzle out the details of each case. The video explains the game’s ‘Intuition Points’ system, which provides optional hints to players when they become stuck. There’s also some stuff on the side-missions that players are able to partake in between and during the major crimes, including foiling street robberies and tackling ‘Unassigned Cases’.

There’s lots of that famed period detail too, with plenty of famous Los Angeles locations zooming by during the in-game excerpts. LA Noire is out on Xbox 360 and PS3 on May 20. As ever, take a look and let us know what you think…
