Rockstar Games have this week revealed gameplay footage of the newly enhanced previously released L.A. Noire murder mystery video game, originally launched back in 2011 for older generation console systems and PC. Rockstar will be relaunching the enhanced version of the game next month making it available on PlayStation 4, Xbox Oneand PC systems on November 14th 2017.
To recap L.A. Noire is a neo-noir detective action-adventure video game developed by Team Bondi and published by Rockstar Games and was highly praised for using Depth Analysis’s newly developed technology MotionScan, whereby the actors portraying the game’s characters were recorded by 32 surrounding cameras to capture facial expressions from every angle. Check out the new 4K Ultra HD footage below to see what you can expect from the gameplay and graphics in the latest version of the single player action adventure.
The game takes place in the city of Los Angeles, in the year 1947, with players assuming the role of Los Angeles Police Department officer, and later detective, Cole Phelps. The game starts with Phelps as a uniformed patrolman, and follows his career as he advances through the police department bureaus (desks) of Traffic, Homicide, Vice and Arson. Each desk gives players a new partner who will help Phelps in his investigation of a number of cases based on a specific type of crime. The game assigns players with cases that they must solve.
After each case, players receive a rating of 1–5 stars depending on their performance in both interrogations and searching for clues. In some cases, when searching an area for clues to the crime, players can also find newspapers. Besides reading the story, the newspapers give access to a short cinematic that either covers a part of the game’s overarching plot or a flashback to Phelps’ war memories. Near the end of the final desk, players assume control of private investigator Jack Kelso, who becomes the player character for most of the rest of the game; although different in appearance and personality, he controls identically to Phelps.
