L.A. Noire

The long awaited first look at in-game footage from Rockstar's L.A. Noire is finally available in a new trailer. This game features what is likely to be the most advanced and convincing facial motion capture to date. It's not there simply to make the game look better, but it will play an important part in the gameplay as well where you are a 1940s detective who has to interrogate people and suspects and watch their facial expressions to gauge whether they are lying or telling the truth. You can learn more about the MotionScan system used for this game here. The trailer can be viewed below.
