First Official L.A. Noire Screens

on February 16, 2010 10:35 AM

L.A. Noire is a game with a unique artistic style that attempts to replicate the film noir styles of the 1940 and 50s.  While little is known about the title, it seems to be another Rockstar game that has a massive open-world environment, much like its Grand Theft Auto franchise, among others.  However, Rockstar is only publishing this title, it’s being developed by Team Bondi, using their own game engine.  Game Informer’s last issue contained a huge article about this title, including many images that were released by Rockstar.  These are the first digitally released images, taken from their web site.

While initially announced as a PS3 exclusive, it has since been revealed that this will be a multi-platform style, being released on both the PS3 and Xbox 360.  It’s looking at this point to have a fall 2010 release.  Check out some screens from the game below and let us know what you think about the style.  Do you think this post-World War II setting with an open world will work for a game of this nature?
