Posted on May 18, 2011, Phil Hornshaw L.A. Noire Landmarks Guide
We’re finding everything there is to find in L.A. Noire and documenting it all on our L.A. Noire Cheats Guide and our L.A. Noire Walkthrough. Like most efforts Rockstar Games is tangled up with, L.A. Noire is a big game with lots of hidden things to track down, locate, gather and unlock. Among those are a number of 1940s Los Angeles landmarks you can locate and add to your roster.
Finding all the landmarks is tough business, however, especially since L.A. Noire’s city is kinda enormous. But we’ve got you covered: we’re building a list and guide for all the landmarks in the game, so you can find them all and unlock the “Sky Map” Achievement or Trophy.
