    LA Noire Remastered

    Rockstar Games Announces 4 New Versions of L.A. Noire coming November 14, 2017

    NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 7, 2017-- Rockstar Games®, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO), is proud to announce new versions of the blockbuster detective thriller, L.A. Noire, are scheduled to release on November 14, 2017 for the Nintendo Switch™ system, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment systems and for Xbox One games and entertainment systems.

    Alongside these three new console versions comes LA Noire: The VR Case Files, featuring seven select cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for a virtual reality experience on the HTC VIVE™ system.

    L.A. Noire takes place in the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles as decorated veteran and newly minted detective, Cole Phelps investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. Each successfully solved case brings Phelps greater success, but also brings him closer to the dark criminal heart of post-war L.A. The game was an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival for its cinematic approach to gameplay and narrative.

    Utilizing a unique type of facial capture technology called MotionScan, L.A. Noire breathes unprecedented life into character performances, creating brand new gameplay out of the art of interrogation.

    “We’re excited to bring L.A. Noire’s unique mix of real detective work, classic Hollywood atmosphere and thrilling action to these new platforms,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “Now with a choice of spectacular virtual reality, stunning 4K, or the freedom of portable play, these enhanced versions are a perfect opportunity for players to experience this richly detailed world in a whole new way."

    L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from LA 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. L.A. Noire plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, capturing the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before.

    They've removed face of the actress, who wasn't even in the game, from the front cover.

    They always have to butcher remasters....

    I got bored of LA Noire after doing literally the same investigation 12 times in a row.

    It was repetitive in some ways, but still worth a single playthrough, especially later when story picks up the pace.

    Wanted to like it. Visually stunning so the remaster should really pop, but just meh, didn't do much for me anyway.

    Never played this, although I am fascinated with the era and love Film Noir. Will pick this up for sure!

    I remember when this came out. I could barely tell who was lying or what. I think it was one of the first games to use motion capture if I remember correctly. I liked the game for what it was trying to be but I think the semi open world environment hurt it.

    Will be interesting to see how popular it is on the Switch and on the new consoles

    I remember trying to play this on PC -it ran like absolute dog crap even when you turned everything down to minimum 800 x 600. One of the worst optimised PC games I have ever come across.

    Runs flawlessly at 1080p/60fps using the 60fps hack for me, maxed settings. No crashes.

    Well yeah it probably would on hardware 6 years in the future -I'm talking about on the recommended specs at the time...

    I enjoyed this game but the open-world aspects were pretty phoned in. The actual investigation aspects were cool and the voice/motion capture is superb.

    Nothing wrong with a linear story-driven game which uses an open world. It delivers greater immersion when you have a living world. Mafia 1 & 2 did this to great effect.
