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.
