Every now and then comes a game that truly innovates in terms of mechanics or technology. Titles like Crysis and Heavy Rain push the envelope of what games can present to society by emulating actual physics and real life decisions. Rockstar Studios, the development team behind Grand Thef Auto, aims to set a new standard in their newest game called L.A. Noire.
L.A. Noire features a state-of-the-art facial mapping technology that completely simulates an actor’s facial movement. Using this, the player can then tell what the characters in the game are feeling through the emotion they facially display.
Watch the vid and prepare to be amazed. Imagine the games this technology can influence in the future… the possibilities are endless!
