    Shanghai, 1936. Whore of the Orient. Paris of the East. The most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price. Plaything of Western powers who greedily exploit the Chinese masses. Boiling pot of Chinese nationalism, with the Kuomintang ruthlessly trying to suppress Communism and the labour movement. Home to the International Police Force, a group of Western cops hopelessly trying to keep the lid on and keep the peace.

    From the development team who brought you L.A. Noire and The Getaway, along with the Academy Award winning film production team of Kennedy Miller Mitchell comes a completely new and original IP being developed for next generation games consoles and PC.

    The Getaway, famous for its photo-realistic look, strong narrative and uncompromising gameplay style, sold over 4 million units on the PlayStation 2. The release of L.A. Noire set the quality bar even higher selling over 5 million units. L.A. Noire was critically heralded as a breakthrough for interactive storytelling and was the first game ever to be invited to be shown at New York's world renowned Tribeca Film Festival. L.A. Noire has gone on to become the UK's fastest selling original IP - a title previously held by The Getaway - and a worldwide number one hit. Using award winning animation technology to capture every actor's facial performance in astonishing detail, L.A. Noire combined breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience.



    Team Bondi (the developer of L.A. Noire) just announced their new game they're working on: "Whore Of The Orient". Yup, you read that right. [MEDIA SHITSTORM INBOUND]
    It is going to be released on PC and next-gen consoles. Release date is TBA.

    Features; massages with happy ending

    lol /jk
    I seem to be one of the few people who'd really enjoyed L.A. Noire. The setting and style was well done imo

    That facial animation is really going to shine when it comes to the in-game blowjobs.

    That's quite a provocative title...

    Sounds interesting though, I'm always down with a game that's based on my heritage. :P Certainly enjoying Sleeping Dogs at the moment (I know they're different devs).

    I hope it's not a L.A. Niore type gameplay. Game gets boring after a while and there is no replay value. A GTA style gameplay would be nice. Can bad or good decisions actually make a difference to the story please?

    As stated in OP, Shanghai is called "The Whore of the Orient". Nothing to do with prostitutes and/or blow jobs. Come on people...

    WAIT WAIT WAIT

    Didn't Team Bondi bankrupt?

    Indeed: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Team_Bondi

    I wonder why they're still calling themselves "Team Bondi".

    bottom of the article

    Basically a movie studio that retained most of Team Bondi's IPs and employees (although a fair number went to work at Rockstar) is exploiting the fame Team Bondi recieved from LA Noire.

    I read that, I was just saying that they're not Team Bondi anymore and they shouldn't call themselves like that. Just cheap fame-exploitation.

    Same question as Raulpica. I was under the impression that Team Bondi collapsed a while ago. EDIT: So it looks like the game's focus on corruption and greed is very appropriate.

    Anyway, the game certainly looks interesting, but the title is a bit too wordy. Save on space and just rename it "Whorient".

    "The most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price."
    That's kinda' suggestive in itself... and it's one of the rumors about the actual city.

    The word "whore" is used for a reason, it seems.
