Rockstar has unveiled L.A. Noire
, a period piece developed by Team Bondi, a new Australian studio founded by Brendan McNamara (The Getaway
). Set in 1940's L.A. (before the freeways), L.A. Noire
explores a series of gruesome murders through the eyes of, we assume, a detective.
We've eyed a 37-second teaser, which sweeps through an eventless urban street scene, while a horn whines a sleepy jazz tune. We suspect, like The Getaway
will be less open-ended than GTA
and will rely on cinematic elements
to keep gamers interested. While billed as a "next-generation" title, Rockstar has not specified platforms.
