Rockstar Games has announced 4 new releases of their popular detective thriller L.A. Noire are scheduled for release on November 14, 2017.
The four releases include a release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Alongside these three new console versions, Rockstar is venturing into virtual reality with L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, featuring seven cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for a virtual reality experience on the HTC VIVE.
For those unaware, L.A. Noire is based in 1940’s Los Angeles, and you the player, control detective Cole Phelps as he investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. Each successfully solved case brings Phelps greater success, but also brings him closer to the dark side of a post-World War II L.A.
Details from the Rockstar website list the versions as such:
L.A. Noire for the Nintendo Switch features the complete original game and all additional downloadable content, with specific enhancements including a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.
L.A. Noire for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One delivers the complete original game and all additional downloadable content with a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures and more. Plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, these versions capture the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before.
Are you ready to jump back into the open world gameplay experience of L.A. Noire? We are! And we eagerly await the re-release.
