LA Noire Announced for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, VR Edition Revealed

Rockstar has announced that there will be 4 new versions of the detective thriller L.A. Noire which will come out in November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. While rumors supported that the game would be getting PSVR features, it turns out that the game is getting VR features through HTC Vive. It has been enhanced to include Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles.

Although that technology isn't new anymore, the gameplay style of L.A. Noire remains relatively fresh, making it a flawless title for Rockstar Games to remaster for new consoles. There will also be contextual touch screen controls.

The game is not only coming to PS4 and Xbox One, but also to the Nintendo Switch, the first Rockstar game to appear on the console for a whopping eight years.

The developer's HTC Vive title will include seven self-contained cases from the original L.A. Noire "rebuilt specifically for virtual reality".

Whether the game itself is played at a neutral location this weekend or in Miami later in the season remains to be seen. The NFL chose to move the date rather than relocate the game to a neutral field such as Pittsburgh or Philadelphia .

The PS4 and Xbox One versions will upgrade the performance of the base game with new cinematic camera angles, improved lighting and environmental detail, native 1080p resolution on base consoles and 4K visuals on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

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.

If you were hoping this news was about a sequel to L.A. Noire you're going to be disappointed. As of yet, we don't know which studio is developing the game, what it will cost, or if it'll be available on other VR platforms later.
