L.A. Noire Missions Based On Real-Life Crimes From 1947
This past week, we heard from Rockstar that gamers can expect a much-anticipated unveiling of L.A. Noire next month. Well, maybe we can get you started a little early.
Up until now, we had always thought the most intriguing element of this new game was its 1940s atmosphere and gritty, underworld feel. However, Rockstar has been saying all along that L.A. Noire will boast some very special features that might just surprise everyone. Perhaps this is one of those features: according to GameGuru and citing a brief resume for a Team Bondi designer, it seems much of the game's missions will be based on real-life crimes that happened in Los Angeles in 1947. This particular designer's job was to do research into LA newspapers for the year in question, and pick out crimes to place into the game's database. Obviously, this means you would set out to solve the crimes that actually occurred in 1947, which is just plain awesome. We get the feeling it's sorta like GTA with a twist of hardened reality that puts L.A. Noire in a class by itself. But we still have to wait for the official unveiling before we can bring you more details, like the all-important gameplay and control mechanics...
Anyway, the more we hear about this one, the more excited we become. It's okay that we've been waiting for a long time; we've had plenty of other titles to keep our attention, right?
