First L.A. Noire trailer coming this Thursday

Rockstarhas announcedthat it will release a new L.A. Noire trailer this Thursday. Though footagehas been previously released (opens in new tab), Rockstar is calling this the "first" trailer, which we hope means that it will include gameplay. Oh, wait... you do remember what L.A. Noire is, right?

Team Bondi's upcoming detective game has been teased for a long time (since 2004, even), but information has been sparse. Earlier this year, GameInformerposted exclusive screens (opens in new tab)andscored a 10-page mag feature (opens in new tab)which described the game's "groundbreaking facial-animation system" and "astonishing reconstruction of 1947 Los Angeles."

According to the latest fromRockstar, the game is a "twisted tale of murder, corruption and jazz" and is the "public debut of groundbreaking new performance scanning technology that will change the face of digital entertainment."

Rockstar has sort of changed the face of digital entertainment before, so bombastic as the statement may be, we're intrigued.

Look for the trailer at http://www.rockstargames.com/lanoire (opens in new tab) at noon EST on Thursday, November 11.
