It is news no one expected, but a remaster of Rockstar Game’s six year old L.A. Noire will launch on November 14th 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and, via a unique stand-alone version, the HTC Vive.
Check out Rockstar’s official announcement:
L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from L.A. Noire rebuilt specifically for virtual reality, blending breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience.
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.
I was a huge fan of L.A. Noire, but I don’t feel it gained enough exposure at the time, which was a shame. I’m so thankful that the studio has been toiling away on this in time for a November release. Does this mark the beginning of more Rockstar titles heading to the Switch and HTC Vive? We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
