Rockstar’s 2011 detective drama L.A Noire will re-release on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch this November, the developer has announced. Rockstar will also release its first virtual reality title based on the same game, L.A Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive.
Created by the now-closed Bondi Studio in Australia and originally released in 2011, L.A. Noire tells the story of war veteran Cole Phelps as he solves crimes and rises the ranks of the LAPD in 1947. Players solve cases by questioning witnesses and suspects and reading their faces in order to determine if they are telling the truth, lying, or somewhere in the middle.
L.A Noire on Nintendo Switch will include the main game, all 5 released DLC packs: The Naked City, Reefer Madness, Nicholson Electroplating, The Consul’s Car and A Slip of the Tongue, along with Switch specific features such as gyroscopic, gesture-based controls and HD rumble, a new over the shoulder camera angle and touch screen controls for portable investigations on the fly.
Along with the base game and previously released DLC packs, Xbox One and PS4 versions will also be improved for the re-release with enhanced lighting, new cinematic camera angles and HD textures, L.A Noire will also support PS4 Pro and Xbox One X for the ultimate 4K experience.
Rockstar’s first venture into the world of virtual reality, L.A Noire: The VR Case Files, will feature seven cases from the original game, re-built specifically for HTC Vive.
L.A. Noire on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch and L.A Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive are slated for release on November 14th, 2017.
