Rockstar Games have announced a new re-mastered version of detective thriller L.A. Noire, which is coming to the Xbox One and PS4 on November 14th.
Set against the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940s Los Angeles, L.A. Noire is the story of decorated war 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 closer to the dark criminal heart of post-war L.A.
The Xbox One X and PS4 Pro versions come with new bonus content and enhancements including updated weather, smog and lighting effects for a more realistic Los Angeles. Plus, real-time reflections on vehicle surfaces and new chrome and dirt effects to create a wider range of vehicles. It will also play in 4k on both Xbox One X and PS4 Pro.
A Nintendo Switch version will also be released alongside the remasters and will include the original game and its downloadable content, and will feature gyroscopic, gesture-based controls and HD rumble, as well as “new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work,” Rockstar said.
Rockstar will also release its first virtual reality title based on the game, L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, for HTC Vive which will include seven self-contained cases from the original L.A. Noire “rebuilt specifically for virtual reality.”
