L.A. Noire’s debut in-game trailer

Rockstar’s released the first new trailer for L.A. Noire since its initial announcement trailer from back in 2006.

The one-minute long trailer puts high emphasis on the game’s dark and violent mood. The detective thriller is set in Los Angeles in the post-war years of the 1940s, also known as LA’s most corrupt period of time. That fact is clearly displayed in the trailer.

Pay attention to the detail on each character’s face as they converse; their emotions are clearly displayed with each word they speak. Players will need to utilize this unique feature by analyzing their suspects’ faces and determine on their own what the story is in order to find out the truth.

And now, the trailer, below.
