L.A. Noire - a violent crime thriller that blends breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience - is now available at retail stores everywhere in North America for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and will be hitting throughout Europe, Australia and Asia Pacific this Friday, May 20th (coming to Japan in July).

Developed by Team Bondi in conjunction with Rockstar Games and set amid the post-war boom of Hollywood's Golden Age, L.A. Noire puts you in the shoes of decorated World War II veteran turned LAPD detective Cole Phelps as he attempts to unravel the truth behind a string of arson attacks, racketeering conspiracies and brutal murders, battling the L.A. underworld and even members of his own department to uncover a secret that could shake the city to its rotten core. Search for clues, chase down suspects and interrogate witnesses as you struggle to find the truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.

Featuring MotionScan, a groundbreaking new animation technology that captures every nuance of an actor's facial performance in astonishing detail, L.A. Noire delivers the most lifelike characters ever seen in a videogame and creates a whole new type of gameplay using the art of interrogation.

L.A. Noire's Rockstar Games Social Club features are also now live and available - Social Club members can redeem their exclusive outfit, begin tracking cases and challenges and much more at
