In the upcoming enhanced version of L.A. Noire, Rockstar has removed the “Truth/Doubt/Lie” system that players would use while interrogating potential perpetrators. Instead, a new system has been implemented that doesn’t make Detecive Cole Phelps seem like a crazed person.
For those unaware, one of the features of the original L.A. Noire was the ability to interrogate people for crimes. While doing so, players would essentially be playing a game of “Truth/Doubt/Lie,” in which you’d have to react to what they were saying in one of those three ways. However, when players would choose “doubt,” Phelps would transform into a crazed person, and instead of interrogating people would instead almost accuse them of things.
Now, for the upcoming remastered version, Rockstar seems to have changed those options entirely, instead offering players the ability to choose from “Good Cop/Bad Cop/Accuse.” As you can see in the new trailer (above), these options play out a lot more accurately depending on the choice, and will leave no room of doubt for what you want to pick.
While the trailer above only showcases the Switch version, Rockstar has confirmed to Kotaku that the change will apply to all three versions of L.A. Noire Remastered. Per a company spokesperson, “The change was made so that the options more accurately reflect Phelps’ behavior when a player selects each choice,” which does make some sense.
The remastered version of L.A. Noire is slated to launch on November 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
