As has been suspected for some time, Rockstar has confirmed that the long-in-development La Noire is no longer a PS3 exclusive and will in fact be released on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 as well.
After a prolonged period of silence on the game, developer Team Bondi has at last shed some light on the title via US consumer mag Game Informer.
Amongst the details, as posted by AGB, is the fact that the game promises a ‘revolutionary’ facial motion capture technology that supposedly delivers hugely realistic performances from the in-game characters.
There will be a dialogue choice system similar to that found in Mass Effect that will be particularly useful in scenes where players must interrogate suspects.
Crime scenes are depicted in a very lifelike style meaning players will have to be eagle-eyed to spot clues. Any details about objects that are examined will be automatically recorded in a notebook, the contents of which can then be used to challenge testimonies.
There’s no firm release date for the game as of yet, though a 2010 release looks increasingly likely.
