Video game fans were floored on Thursday when in a surprising announcement, Rockstar said the beloved 1940’s detective classic, L.A. Noire, was being remastered and released for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and VR in November.
The console versions — which are the complete game and original additional downloadable content — and seven of the original cases for HTC Vive, will arrive Nov. 14, according to the company.
“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,” Rockstar said.
The original game was released in 2011. It was a commercial success and critically acclaimed.
The 1940’s detective game stars Aaron Staton, best known for playing Ken Cosgrove on AMC’s Mad Men. There are a number of other Mad Men actors in the game, too.
Staton plays WWII hero turned Los Angeles police detective Cole Phelps, who works cases in Hollywood’s seedy underbelly, including a fictitious portion of the “Black Dahlia” murder.
