L.A. Noire Original Artwork: "What's in the Trunk?"

Posted on April 12 2011, 12:35pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Whatever it is, Detective Phelps and a rather revolted patrol officer seem to find it none too pleasant...

This week's release in the L.A. Noire Original Artwork Collection features an investigative discovery, on just one night in 1947 Los Angeles. 

Grab "What's in the Trunk?" now as a wallpaper, buddy icon or avatar from the downloads section of either the Rockstar site or the L.A. Noire site in any of the customary sizes made for desktop, mobile or Twitter background use.

      you guys are AMAZING, and If I might be so bold can you say: GAME OF THE YEAR? I mean lets face it ladies and gents, everything else that is coming out this year is old hat (i.e. Gears of War 3) we've been there and done that. Think about it, the reasons (in my opinion) that a great game like RDR won GOTY last year was not only because of its in-depth character developement and griping plot-line, but also because it was something unique; a gaming genre that with the exception of RD: Revolver (thank you Rockstar) was not done successful by any other gaming company. That being said, the reason that I can confidently state so early in the year that this game will in-fact be GOTY for 2011 is because like RDR it offers something completely new and unique to gamers, something that will afford gamers the unique oppertunity to experience a type of gameplay mechanic for which they are not acustomed to playing, one that I am sure will leave gamers BEGGING for more upon beating the game. In closing, those of you lucky enough to be working for such an AMAZING company have finally given gamers the oppertunity to dive into a world of: investative detective work mixed in with the players own personal intuitions and insights, a world for which most games either lack completely or only partially hint at, and for that we thank you.

        hey in almost ALL of the artwork I see the cops with those belts across their chests, yet in the screenshots they aren't wearing them, now I'm inclined to believe the screenshots because of common sense, but I would REALLY love to see them In game with those belts, i don't know why but they look awesome! So yeah could I have some confirmation on this please?!

                        I just can't wait anymore! But what i really want R* to announce is the special or limited edition for the game. The moment i see, it ill pre-order it. Its also good to see Australian companies like team Bondi doing some really great work. I live in Sydney and there really close to where i live. Its pretty cool.

                          @Murcie-LP640 et al - love the 'what's in the trunk???' speculation, ha

                          @Noir1948 @Marlboro-rock Yeah, please let's keep any console wars discussion outta here guys

                          Thx all

                            *Off topic*
                            I hate it when R* makes exclusives for other consoles. Like the PS3 traffic case for L.A Noire, or the extra hideout and outfit in Red Dead Redemption. I know its more of Sony's and Microsofts fault, but why can't there be any harmony. Curse you competition of the modern market!

                                Can you guys stop compare 360 and ps3? Seriously, it dosen't matter what's Good with 360 and ps3, the only thing thats matter is LA NOIRE. And if there are some diffrent bonus materials on the diffrent consols, so what?? There is nothing you two can do about it. 360 have some bonus materials and so have ps3, so just drop it and try to enjoy this awesome game...

                                    In the trunk there is Uncharted 3 which will loose against L.A NOIRE at the VGA awards 2011 !!!
                                    It is gonna be a tough task to choose between the two !!!

                                        No one said that both games can't get GOTY at the same time. If Max Payne follows other Rockstar games releases it might get pushed back again. I would like to see a August release for Max Payne, but how many times has Rockstar ever released (Published or Developed ) more than one game in the same year? None the less I have both pre-ordered and paid for waiting for release.

                                          Wow Rockstar, too bad you release two games this year (as far as I know, LA Noire and Max Payne 3) meaning you will compete with yourself over Game of the Year^^

                                          Really like the artwork, and general feel of the game, gonna pre-order this for Ps3 as soon as I figure out if I can get a special edition where I live...

                                          You probably don't need me to tell you this, but keep up the good work!
