LA Noire launch trailer teases us one last time

In case you’ve forgotten, 1940s detective thriller LA Noire finally arrives in stores in less than a week – and just to make sure we all remember, Rockstar’s rolled out a new trailer ahead of the May 17 launch. Offering up a cross-section of sweepingly dramatic dialogue and impeccably dressed hard-boiled cop action, it’s a short but slick reminder of what’s waiting for us next Tuesday.

If you’ve been watching LA Noire’s other videos up to this point – which have included in-depth explanations of the gameplay and story progression as well as rapid-cut trailers like the above – the theatrical outbursts, rapid-cut action shots and close-ups of eerily realistic faces aren’t too different from what you’ve already seen. The dialogue’s new, though, and if you listen carefully, you’ll get a few not-so-cryptic hints about LA Noire’s overarching, corruption-soaked plot.

If nothing else, this is a game we’ve been waiting for for nearly five years, and it’s nice to get one last glimpse to tide us over before we can finally delve in.

    Has anyone mentioned James Ellroy in the build up to this game? I can see his influence all over this, which is a great thing.

    totally excited. it looks really great. I recall hearing that the combat was a little iffy in some of the previews, so hopefully that's improved. everything else is lookin good so far.

    Hell yes, gonna pick it up as soon as it arrives to my local retail store at Uruapan. One of the perks of living in a small town in crappy Mexico, is that you never really have to worry about pre-ordering or fearing they will run out of copies XD

    Same Clovin, but I'm gonna wait until after the exams to get it.

    Did they hire half of the cast from Mad Men

    I forgot this was coming out next week, and I've got it pre-ordered! I've got to study like hell for my exams over the next 2 weeks, so this had better not ruin my life.
