The 2011 thriller is being rereleased on modern platforms later this year.
On November 14, 2017, Rockstar Games plans to release L.A. Noire on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch featuring enhanced visuals from the 2011 release. Alongside the remastered release, the publisher is also releasing L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, which takes seven cases from the original game rebuilt for VR on HTC Vive.
While the modern console rerelease is a more traditional remaster, what’s coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch varies slightly. The Nintendo Switch version of the game includes the base game and all DLC along with “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.” The PS4 and Xbox One rerelease of the game will feature more technical enhancements than the Switch version boasting improved lighting and clouds, new camera angles and higher resolution textures. The vanilla Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game will output at 1080p while the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions will output at 4K.
Rockstar’s announcement didn’t mention the framerate of the PS4, Xbox One and Switch versions of the game, so it’s safe to assume they’ll run at the original game’s 30fps. Running in 4K, it’s likely the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X enhanced versions will also be capped at 30fps.
L.A. Noire is coming to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on November 14, 2017. L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files will debut on HTC Vive on the same date.
