Coming November 14, Rockstar Games will be releasing 4 brand new versions of LA Noire. These versions include: The Nintendo Switch port, a port to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, an enhanced version for the PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One X, as well as an HTC Vive all new experience titles “LA Noire: The VR Case Files”.
The Nintendo Switch port will be an all inclusive experience bringing the full game and all extra content given out through downloadable content. Although it seems this version will not have any graphical enhancements, it will feature “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”. Not taking the new joycon modes, this seems to be the most lacking version of the upcoming LA Noire ports, mostly in the graphical department.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One port will have the full main story as well as all of the DLC, similar to the Switch port. One difference is that this port will have many graphical enhancements, running natively at 1080p, with “greater visual fidelity and authenticity”. In terms of looking for the most straight forward port of this game, this will be your best bet.
The PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X port will do all of the same as the port respectively given to the average console counterparts, but with native 4K and stunning visuals. If you have the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, your copy of LA Noire will be the same copy as the PS4 and Xbox One versions, with automatic adjustments given to the enhanced consoles.
The most outlandish new installment in the Rockstar Games LA Noire universe is LA Noire: The VR Case Files. Coming exclusive to the HTC Vive, this will feature 7 cases from the original LA Noire, now reworked and reimagined for virtual reality. These cases will each be all inclusive and will blend “breathtaking action with true detective work”.
LA Noire originally released in 2011, met with great critical and consumer reviews, as well as a lifetime of 5 million sales, making a sequel, or in this case, next gen port, inevitable.
