Pop-Up Edition Video of L.A. Noire Official Trailer 3: Additional Insights & Info

Posted on April 26 2011, 2:30pm | Author: R* A | Filed Under: Games

Today, we present the Pop-Up Edition of our most recently released official trailer for L.A. Noire - providing additional info and insights into the game and the world of 1947 Los Angeles that inspired the Vice crimes you'll face.

Among them:

  • You may have read about the Vice desk case, "The Set Up" - in which Phelps and his partner Roy Earle investigate the disappearance of a boxer following a fixed fight that's left a few crooked gamblers and mob types a bit miffed. Fixed boxing match scandals were a current affair back in '47 - most famously with this incident, in which both Frank Sinatra and 'Raging Bull' Jake Lamotta were alleged to be mixed up with a mob scheme.
  • Syrettes are found at the scene when Phelps and Earle investigate the apparent overdose of two junkie musicians in a squalid apartment. Syrettes were notably used for administering morphine to wounded soldiers during World War II, and in the post-war years many veterans tragically wound up addicted consumers of black-market dope to fill their fix.
  • The 1940s saw rampant accusations of LAPD corruption - something that was blown wide open by ex-LAPD Vice Squad officer Sgt. Charles Stoker's expose Thicker'n Thieves, published in 1951.

        I don't think that LA Noire will have multiplayer, I was just throwing it out, but the XP thing is still odd. Will the game have a leveling up feature that somehow conducts when you get a promotion? Only other conclusion is some sort of multiplayer.

          To answer some peoples questions, there is no desk after Arson, Arson is the last desk. And Narcotics are included in the Vice desk

            LA Noire has no multiplayer this has been stated over and over...

              Anyone else notice that on the gamestop police badge pursuit thing it says that a reward is "additional XP"? Multiplayer anyone?

                                  I'm really disapointed of one thing on this game. The fact that the only point we can see on radar are the mission points. So my question is simple rockstar answer by yes or no : Is there going to by shops ( for example costume shops ) Thanks for you upcoming answer. You ROCK !

                                    I have a question about vehicles.

                                    Do cars have been destroyed? You can destroy them?
