Avast! Rockstar’s LA Noire Trailer.

Following on from their highly successful Western themed sand box game Red Dead Redemption, gaming giants Rockstar have proudly unveiled the first official trailer to their highly anticipated new title LA Noire. Set in the city of Los Angeles in the 1940s , drawing obvious inspiration from the likes of LA Confidential, Chinatown and other film noir from the same era, the game is centred around a young detective and his efforts to crack a series of mysterious murders. The game was announced over six years ago and fans have been in a state of anxious anticipation since then. Obviously, with all of their titles, it will be a well researched game giving players that specific feel of authenticity Rockstar are known for.

One thing we did notice was how the lead character looks uncannily like actor Aaron Staton, whose most famous role to date is that of Ken Cosgrove in the excellent 50s drama series Mad Men. What do you think?
