If you've been hankering to get your hands on Rockstar's latest game, you've now got a date to scrawl on your calendar - May 20th. That's when L.A. Noire finally hits shelves across the country, after releasing elsewhere on the 17th.
They've also released a new trailer to mark the release date notificiation, which dials up our anticipation even further:
If you've not heard about L.A. Noire, from Rockstar (the people behind Grand Theft Auto), it promises to be ground breaking in many ways. With incredible facial animation, this period detective drama challenges the player to interview suspects and make determinations on their guilt based on their reactions. Rather than simply follow a tired old gameplay mechanic, players will succeed (or otherwise) based on the strength of their intuition - much like the detectives we're used to watching on TV.
There's also loads of actiony stuff and plot-development cinematics that similarly leverage their top-shelf animation technology.
