What’s the best indicator that a game is about to release? When a launch trailer for said title lands on our doorstep. That’s precisely what just happened for Rockstar and Team Bondi’s L.A. Noire. The crime thriller is set to launch next week, May 17, for Xbox 360 and PS3, so Rockstar is making the rounds with the game’s official launch trailer. And since I’m not a greedy bastard, I’ve embedded it below for your viewing pleasure.

If you’ve been living under a rock for a good long while now, L.A. Noire tells the story of Cole Phelps as he rises through the ranks of the LAPD, from beat cop to vice, during 1947 Los Angeles. This was one of the most violent eras in L.A. history, a period punctuated by the now-infamous Black Dahlia murders.

So, what are you waiting for? Get watching!
