January 28, 2011, By Christian Cawley

Set for release on May 15th on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is L.A. Noire, the latest immersive title from Rockstar Games. If you’ve had enough of stealing cars, riding horses or beating up school kids, it’s time to travel back in time to 1940s Los Angeles and take the lead role in a detective thriller…

Rockstar go Art Deco with LA Noire

The official site for this astonishing-looking console-only game is now live, offering interesting profiles about some of the main characters, trailers and some excellent in-game art.

Setup like a 1940s film noir detective movie (hence the name) the game features superb period detail, right down to the plaid trousers and mahogany desks, freshly build art deco structures and pistols. This looks set to be a game like no other, although there is little word yet on just how linear or open the game will turn out to be.

Rockstar have previous form for producing games featuring vast, open worlds, but with a game with a plot that follows a series of potentially linked murders there is bound to be a definite linear element. It might not be GTA: Double Indemnity but it might just be Red Dead Redemption: The Maltese Falcon.
