| Rockstar Games is pleased to announce a partnership with Team Bondi Pty Ltd to publish the ground-breaking next generation crime thriller L.A. Noire. Developed by Team Bondi, a new Australian based studio founded by Brendan McNamara, of The Getaway, L.A Noire is an interactive detective story set in the classic noir period of the late 1940's.|
L.A. Noire blends action, detection and complex storytelling and draws players into an open-ended challenge to solve a series of gruesome murders. Set in a perfectly recreated Los Angeles before freeways, with a post-war backdrop of corruption, drugs and jazz, L.A. Noire will truly blend cinema and gaming.
Basic Information, from Wikipedia:
Platform(s): PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
Release date(s): August - October 2010
Let me also point out that it's to be, according, again, to the wiki page, yet another Rockstar Games Sandbox-style game.
So taking 1940s, Los Angeles, R*'s excellence into account, knock yourselves out into discussion.
I am wondering if we could expect the exceptional quality of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption, and how the physical recreation of Los Angeles can be. Anyway, I'd rather not dwell into much detail. I just hope this will be just as, if not, more amazing than what R* has already blown us away with this generation.
Cheers, and let's also hope that the alleged August to October release date is realised!
