In an interesting turn of events, Rockstar is bringing back Detective Cole Phelps and into the current generation of console hardware.
L.A. Noire is a detective story that’s light on action but heavy on the conversation / investigation aspects of the game. Set in L.A. during the late 1940s, the game draws heavily from film noir for both the plot and aesthetic elements. The game will be remastered for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It will also have a VR version with L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC VIVE.
Here’s a brief description on what’s in store for each hardware:
L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from L.A. Noire rebuilt specifically for virtual reality, blending breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience.
L.A. Noire for the Nintendo Switch features the complete original game and all additional downloadable content, with specific enhancements including a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.
L.A. Noire for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One delivers the complete original game and all additional downloadable content with a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures and more. Plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, these versions capture the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before.
