Rockstar has teased a new gameplay video for its violent crime thriller.

Rockstar’s website states that the video will “go in-depth on how, as returning WWII veteran Cole Phelps, you will face criminal cases across 5 department desks of the LAPD – from a patrolman to a Traffic desk detective, to investigating grisly homicides and more…”

The video is due to go live April 21 at noon Eastern time (BST -5hrs).

Alan Wake developer Remedy recently claimed its new animation suite would outperform that of L.A. Noire’s Motion Scan.

L.A. Noire releases for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 17 in the US and May 20 in Europe.
