L.A. Noire: See the ground-breaking technology behind the game

You've never seen game faces look so realistic

A few weeks ago we told you about the MotionScan system that's making Rockstar's detective 'em-up, L.A. Noire, look so amazing. Back then we really wanted to emphasise just how revolutionary the system is that allows these incredibly detailed faces but it would've taken thousands of words or at least three years worth of trying to draw it with crayons. Thankfully, Rockstar have just released this behind the scenes trailer for your viewing pleasure. 

So without further ado, let's take a look at how the new benchmark in gaming visuals can be achieved...

Impressive, no? Of course it is. We predict a clambering for this technology from all and sundry. We're hopeful Rockstar will use it in GTAV, which, lets be honest, would be bloody brilliant. For now though, we're more than excited at the prospect of getting hands-on with L.A. Noire and hopefully we'll have more on it soon.
