L.A. Noire Original Artwork: Detective Cole Phelps

Posted on January 19 2011, 5:03pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Today, as one of our first official L.A. Noire original artwork releases, we present this signature image of intrepid Detective Cole Phelps, poised for action, service pistol at the ready, in one of the many seedy and dangerous back alleys of Los Angeles, 1947. 

You can now download any of the range of desktop formatted wallpapers, backgrounds, avatars and buddy icons in all the customary sizes from the Rockstar Downloads section - as you prepare to step into Phelps' gumshoes this spring to take down a rogue's gallery of criminals from petty thieves to corrupt officials, drug traders, vicious murderers, arsonists and more. 

Look for the continuing series of official L.A. Noire artwork releases featuring the game's hardnosed characters and gritty crime scenes throughout the coming weeks and months.

        I've been keeping the amount of news I've been reading about this game at a minimum. I want to be fully surprised. I do like this wall paper though. :)

                    Very cool.

                    The art seems to convey that Phelps will be morally conflicted between good and evil since half of his character is illuminated and the other side of his character is left in darkness.
