LA Noire map images release

According to reports, Team Bondi have created a map measuring eight square miles of Los Angeles. The map is said to be "a perfectly created Los Angeles of 1947", and images showing the size of the map have surfaced online. The entirety of Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV was said to be around six square miles, so this should give a rough idea of the increased size of Los Angeles in LA Noire. Information on this has appeared thanks to VGArabia, and the images can be viewed below. The images originated on a Playstation 3 version of the game. Quite where the copy of the game originated from is unclear.

If only it would come out on PC...

I think I read on a gaming site that a Rockstar rep said it was likely to come to PC eventually. Supposedly Red Dead is coming to PC soon.

Yeah, it looks good and Rockstar normally have a high standard in their games but no PC version is a mistake imo.

What I hope, is that it will be a story, where you are supposed to stick to a story. The likes of Mafia 2, the game where I didn't get lost, knew what I was doing. I know this is very different from Mafia2, but am hoping it is more away from GTA games... As those are just becoming boring after a little while

No. It's a detective game. And despite the enormous map, it isn't a typical free mode game. It's a linear story so while you can travel around during a mission, you can't choose what 'job' you do next.

Oh maaaan! That's what I enjoy most!

Is this a new GTA game?

No. (Isn't that obvious? The lack of the "GTA" moniker in the game title should be a clue.) This is a new title from Rockstar Games (and Team Bondi), who publish the GTA series as well as other video games.

Well from what I've read it's not strictly linear. The cases will play out differently depending on how well or poorly you progress.

Sad that they aren't including a map with the game

really? That's odd. Rockstar usually put a poster map in with there games.
