We already wrote about the possibility L.A. Noire remasters and the VR version , now it’s all but confirmed by Rockstar itself.
In addition, the American company announces version for virtual reality: L.A. Noire The VR Case Files.
By surprise and without making too much noise, Rockstar has announced a remastered version of their classic game L.A. Noire from the last generation of video consoles that, this time, will appear in PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.
You can read the whole press release here:
“Today, we’re proud to announce new versions of the blockbuster detective thriller L.A. Noire, are scheduled to release on November 14, 2017 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Alongside these three new console versions, we’re taking our first steps into virtual reality with L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, featuring seven select cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for a virtual reality experience on the HTC VIVE.
Set against the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles, L.A. Noire is the story of decorated veteran and newly minted 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 criminal heart of post-war L.A.
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.”
It should be recalled that L.A. Noire original was launched in 2011 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with a great reception from critics and the public. In the game we played the police officer Cole Phelps, in a playable experience that mixed sequences of action with the weight, above all, of a plot of investigation in which we ourselves had to solve a series of crimes.
