Rockstar's L.A. Noire Is Heading To PS4, Xbox One, HTC Vive, and Switch This November


Rockstar Games just announced that they will be bringing their detective adventure game set in the 1940s to the current console generation this November. 

The Nintendo Switch version of L.A Noire will include the original game and its downloadable content. A few Switch-exclusive features will be added as well, such as a gyroscopic, gesture-based controls and HD rumble, a "new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work." says Rockstar Games. 

L.A Noire is also going to the HTC Vive and it will be called L.A Noire: The VR Case Files. It will include seven self-containted cases from the original game built specifically for the VR space. No informatin was given to which cases recieved the VR treatment. 

For the PS4 and Xbox One,  their L.A Noire version will also include the original game and all its downloadable content, with visual improvements such as enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures and will also support 4K resolution.

L.A Noire hit the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011, with a PC release later in the year. You play as Cole Phelps, a LAPD patrol officer that rises from the ranks by solving a series of cases. It's an open-world game that allows players to go through a series of investigations, from murder to narcotics. A unique interrogation system, cover-based shooting, and a few car chases are what you'll expect from one what I think is one of Rockstar's greatest works. 

L.A Noire will be going to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on November 14. L.A Noire: The VR Case Files will be available on the HTC Vive on the same day. 

for the sake of nostalgia, and for those that haven't played it - below is the launch trailer for L.A Noire when it was released in 2011. No video has been released together with this announcement showing off improvements in the port.
