Presenting the annotated version of our most recently released official trailer for L.A. Noire - providing additional info and insights into the game and the world of 1,947 Los Angeles that inspired the Vice crimes you'll face.
You may have read about the Vice desk case, "The Set Up" - in which Phelps and his partner Roy Earle investigate the disappearance of a boxer following a fixed fight that's left a few crooked gamblers and mob types a bit miffed. Fixed boxing match scandals were a current affair back in '47 - most famously with this incident, in which both Frank Sinatra and 'Raging Bull' Jake Lamotta were alleged to be mixed up with a mob scheme.
Syrettes are found at the scene when Phelps and Earle investigate the apparent overdose of two junkie musicians in a squalid apartment. Syrettes were notably used for administering morphine to wounded soldiers during World War II, and in the post-war years many veterans tragically wound up addicted consumers of black-market dope to fill their fix.
The 1,940s saw rampant accusations of LAPD corruption - something that was blown wide open by ex-LAPD Vice Squad officer Sgt. Charles Stoker's expose Thicker'n Thieves, published in 1,951.
