Get ready for an HD Remake of LA Noire as it returns on all current generation machines. That’s right, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and VR.
Rockstar has announced that their gritty crime thriller, LA Noire, is coming to all current generation platforms. That’s right, we said all, which means the game will release on PS4, Xbox One, VR via HTC Vive, and even the Nintendo Switch! This will mark the first game from the developer to be on all platforms of the same generation.
The Switch edition will have the full original game, including all of the previously released DLC, as well as some Switch specific adjustments. Some of those include optional motion controls, HD rumble and wide over the shoulder camera angles. For those playing in handheld mode, new contextual touch-screen controls have also been added for this edition.
What about the VR version? LA Noire: The VR Case Files for the HTC Vive headset will be a separate mode that has seven cases that have been redesigned specifically for the virtual reality experience. Meaning that while it might not be the full game, players will have the chance to enjoy the best VR can offer us in the adventure of LA Noire.
But what about the PS4 and the Xbox One you ask? Oh, don’t you worry there, those will get plenty of hefty boosts to take advantage of the added power as well.
PS4 and the Xbox One players get the full game and all the DLC as well, with the main differences being in graphics and performance. The game will have a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity, including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high-resolution textures and more. The game now runs at native 1080p on PS4 and Xbox One, and in 4K on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
LA Noire will release on PS4, Xbox One, HTC Vive, and Nintendo Switch November 14th. It is currently available for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The new version will release at $40 on the PS4 and Xbox One, and sadly has been affected by the “Switch Tax” and will retail at $10 higher than the others at $50. No word yet on the HTC version, so be sure to check back for more as the story develops.
