Our L.A. Noire locations guide below presents some of the most important points of interest that must be visited by players while exploring Los Angeles, as Cole Phelps, the main character of the game.
The guide offers additional information about these locations, as well as their in-game addresses and other tips that will help detective Cole Phelps to solve the cases faster.
Released on May 17, 2011, L.A. Noire is one of the most expected video games of 2011.
The title was developed by Team Bondi in association with Rockstar Games, a video games studio well known among those who played other open-world action adventure games, such as GTA or Mafia.
Unlike the GTA video games, L.A. Noire is focused on reproducing the City of Los Angeles as it was almost 60 years ago, when the action in the game takes place.
Some of the locations existed in real-life, while others were created by developers.
Furthermore, players should know that in L.A Noire, the city of Los Angeles is divided in neighborhoods, such as Downtown, Hollywood, Westlake and Wilshire.
The fastest way to reach a location in L.A Noire is by driving a car, especially because the player is allowed to skip the driving scenes, thanks to the trip-skip mechanism implemented in the game.
