Aside from that, the Switch version will also feature all additional downloadable content (DLC).

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the “L.A. Noire” will both run at native 1080p. These console versions will be provided with several technical enhancements, such as new cinematic camera angles, improved clouds, and lighting, among others. However, the gaming consoles’ 4K resolution will offer benefits to the video game. Microsoft’s Director of Program Management for Xbox, Mike Ybarra, stated that the game will be enhanced for the upcoming Xbox One X.

HTC Vive version

Meanwhile, the HTC Vive version of the game is dubbed “L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files.” The virtual reality version offers seven self-contained cases. The VR version will also provide unprecedented interactive experience.

With HTC Vive controller’s ability to grab things, write down notes and inspect clues, Vive users would feel like they are completing the cases themselves as if they are the real life detectives.

Although Rockstar Games has yet to provide the pricing for the game’s new versions, it is expected to have a $60 price tag at launch. Nonetheless, it is safe to assume that the virtual reality version of the game will be cheaper.

The game was developed by the Australian independent third-party studio, Team Bondi. Rockstar Games originally launched the video game for the Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2011. The game tells the story of detective Cole Phelps as he investigates the real-world crime inspired cases. Among the cases that a player will investigate is the Black Dahlia murder in Los Angeles, California in 1947.

The video game company is expected to provide more details on the new versions of the game in the coming weeks.
