The L.A. Noire Crime Desk: Vice Screenshots

by on April 26, 2011

As the date of release steadily approaches, Team Bondi have released their fourth dossier or five, displaying screenshots taken from a specific crime desk of the Los Angeles Police Department found in their new game, L.A. Noire. The screens illustrate one of the cases that can be played through in the main game, entitled “The Black Caesar”. The series of six images shows some new locations and characters that have yet to be featured in previous updates, and helps to further flesh out the visual style & attention to detail that is clearly apparent in the game.

In L.A. Noire, Vice is a desk that can replace any officer’s wide-eyed optimism – with hardened cynicism – in no time at all. LAPD Vice detectives plunge themselves down into the seedy underbelly of LA, overturning the most decrepit of stones to expose the city’s dregs, druggies, pimps, pushers, prostitutes, bootleggers, bookies, mob lords, thugs and gangsters. Working these cases will defy your worst and lowest expectations of humanity.

Among the crimes Detective Cole Phelps and his Vice partner Roy Earle will face are illicit gambling activity, the case of a missing boxer, and an investigation into the latest casualties in the dope scourge plaguing the city. In “The Black Caesar”, Phelps and Earle report to the scene of two dead junkies – jazz musicians found in a squalid apartment, surgical tubing still wrapped around their limp, track-pocked arms. What might the detectives find in the dope fiends’ lair that could lead to the source of this poisonous junk? An odd find takes them deep into the dangerous drug trade…

Check out the new images from the case below:
