L.A. Noire's Achievements/Trophies Revealed


Rockstar has revealed the full list of achievements and trophies for their upcoming detective adventure, L.A. Noire. The game will include forty different achievements. That number may seem a little low, but these extras ought to take completionists some time.

The achievements serve up a good mix of "do everything" tasks and the kind of fun, gimmicky ones that make achievements enjoyable. I particularly like "Keep A Lid On," where players must complete a brawl without losing their hats. No noir detective is complete without making sure players look cool at all times, even in a tussle.

Of interest are the achievements related to body count. In "Dead Men Are Heavier," players will need to kill 100 enemies, setting an appropriate tone for the game. In most Rockstar games you'd do that in a few missions, but in L.A. Noire, you probably won't get to that one for a while.

Between the street crime cases, story missions, and silly achievements (like driving all the cars in the game), L.A. Noire looks like the type of game that will add several hours to the experience if you go for 100% completion. During my preview a few weeks ago, Rockstar said the game would fall in line with the rest of their catalog as far as playtime, and this list tells me they weren't kidding. L.A. Noire will be out May 17.
