April 21, 2011, By Christian Davis

Rockstar’s L.A. Noire is going to have you struggle your way to the top in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). The latest gameplay trailer from the upcoming title goes into detail on what it takes to promote from one rank to the next.


As you rise through the ranks of the most violent time in Los Angeles’ history, you’ll solve several crimes and uncover even bigger problems from the most minute of problems. There are 5 “desks” that you’ll work you way through before becoming  a full fledged detective.

Playing as a soldier that just returned from the war, Cole Phelps, starts off as a Patrolman. Along with partner Ralph Dunn you’ll learn that the best way to make it to the top of the force is initiative. From then you’ll be promoted to a traffic Detective where things are never what they seem. After a traffic detective, you’ll move on to homicide. During these missions, you’ll encounter a case that is similar to the unsolved Black Dahlia Murders.

You’ll then advance to a vice cop which is the most glamorous of the LAPD which precedes becoming an arson investigator. L.A. Noire goes in depth with all ranks of the LAPD and this game will have you use your mind and intuition to solving some of these tough crimes.

Here’s the trailer below. Let us know what you think in the comments.
