LA Noire, the investigative crime drama adventure from Team Bondi, is returning later this year for current-generation consoles.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will include the original content and all previously released expansion packs. It will also boast visual improvements with “enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures, and more.” The gameplay will be at native 1080p on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and at 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.
As for the Nintendo Switch version, it will likewise include the full original game as well as all previously released expansion packs. However, the gesture-based controls will be specific to the hybrid console. There will also be “contextual touch-screen controls” for when playing in portable mode. In addition, players can expect new camera angles and HD rumble.
Lastly, there is LA Noire: The VR Case Files. It is the first virtual reality game from the publisher and will feature seven cases from the original game, “rebuilt specifically for virtual reality.” Fans can expect an “unprecedented interactive experience” that offers a new perspective into the action-packed detective work.
LA Noire is scheduled to release on November 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. LA Noire: The VR Case Files will follow the same date for HTC Vive. More details have been promised to arrive in the coming weeks.
LA Noire originally launched for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in May 2011, before arriving on PC in November of the same year. It was hailed for its facial expressions, which were crucial in determining whether suspects were lying during interrogations or not. The gameplay was slow but rewarding.
