New trailer for L.A. Noire

The closer we get to L.A. Noire‘s launch the more and more we find ourselves wanting to take to the streets to solve brutal murders and arrest well-dressed gangsters. We’d be no good at that though, so we’ll just enjoy this new trailer and keep on waiting.

No well-spoken man telling us the ins and outs of the game this time, it’s a straight up mish mash of clips. The details of some of the cases we’ll investigate with Agent Phelps are shown off as well as the promise of gun fights. Just how well L.A. Noire will balance its other elements with action is something we’ll be interested to see. All that work on atmosphere will go to ruin if we end up gunning down every two-bit thug in sight.

The game launches mid-May.
