Rockstar have just revealed some new screens for L.A. Noire (The High Life of Los Angeles, 1947) and gives some more details about the game.
The post-war economic boom and full-fledged glory of Hollywood’s golden era brought a new, revitalized air of glamour and prestige to the world of Los Angeles in 1947. In L.A. Noire, this is exemplified by high-end mansions flanked by luxury vehicles, exclusive restaurants and top class shops... all catering to the idle class.
Detective Cole Phelps will soon learn firsthand though what they say about all that glitters. With power comes ruthlessness, with wealth and privilege come greed, with fame comes desperation - and below that high-gloss sheen lie the darkest of souls.
