Today, Rockstar announced that four new versions of detective drama LA Noire are on their way. There are three new console versions coming, with the game set to launch on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on November 14.
More interesting though is the fourth version which is playable in VR. LA Noire The VR Files features seven case studies from the original game, rebuilt for VR. The game is available to play on HTC Vive. 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.
Founder of Rockstar Games Sam Houser spoke about the new releases, stating “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”
