Rockstar Reveals Special Edition of L.A. Noire for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One


Quote:
Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., is proud to announce new versions of the blockbuster detective thriller, L.A. Noire, are scheduled to release on November 14, 2017 for the Nintendo Switch system, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment systems and for Xbox One games and entertainment systems.

Alongside these three new console versions comes LA Noire: The VR Case Files, featuring seven select cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for a virtual reality experience on the HTC VIVE system.

L.A. Noire takes place in the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940's Los Angeles as decorated veteran and newly minted detective, Cole Phelps 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 criminal heart of post-war L.A. The game was an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival for its cinematic approach to gameplay and narrative.

Utilizing a unique type of facial capture technology called MotionScan, L.A. Noire breathes unprecedented life into character performances, creating brand new gameplay out of the art of interrogation.

"We're excited to bring L.A. Noire's unique mix of real detective work, classic Hollywood atmosphere and thrilling action to these new platforms," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "Now with a choice of spectacular virtual reality, stunning 4K, or the freedom of portable play, these enhanced versions are a perfect opportunity for players to experience this richly detailed world in a whole new way."

L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from LA 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. L.A. Noire plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, capturing the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before.

L.A. Noire is not yet rated by the ESRB. For more information, please visit www.rockstargames.com/lanoire.

I feel this game is going to benefit greatly from a bump up in console power from this generation. The facial animation and motion capture was really pushing the PS3/Xbox360 at the time.

Also...the VR stuff is a cool idea. Those interrogation scenes in VR could be fun.

I hope the VR game is cheaper than the normal game if you are not getting the normal game plus sequences which are available for VR play. Otherwise.... hello piracy.

Couldn't find details on whether this is free (or not) for those of us who own the original on PC. Seems like it could be cool, but I won't repurchase the game for a few VR cases.

The biggest problem with this game is you cannot skip cut scenes. If you choose the wrong line of questioning and have to replay an interrogation, you have to do it from the beginning and watch all cut scenes again in their entirety. Even if all you got wrong was the last part. I gave up the first time that happened and haven't played it again since.

I doubt this game has aged well. Played it upon release and it was okay-ish, but I don't think time has been gentle to its flaws.

Well.. they didn't.
It was an Australian studio with little ties to Rockstar - only some contract about sharing engine tech etc. AFAIK. And the Australian studio crashed and burned as the work conditions became public showing really poor leadership.

I think some from that old studio started working on something called "The whore of the orient.."?

LA Noire was really cool actually. And it seems Rockstar snagged up all the rights and code to the game. I hope we see a sequal some time in the future that will use the full talent of Rockstar.

Only thing I would be worried about is the game being filled with stereotypes and silly crazy people like all Rockstar games. It's getting tiresome I think..

Hey look, it's that weird adventure game Rockstar published on behalf of some group of Australians, half of whom were eaten by crocs while the survivors are making a game documenting my life, apparently...

There, better?

I enjoyed the game, but not enough to buy it again.
