L.A. Noire heading to PS4, Xbox One and Switch on 14 November

Talk about dropping some news out of the blue. L.A. Noire was quite a big hit on the PS3 and Xbox 360, and now an improved version will be heading to the PS4 and Xbox One. Also, for the first time since GTA: Chinatown Wars we’ll be seeing a Rockstar game appearing on a Nintendo format, as it’ll be landing on the Switch and even the HTC Vive on 14 November.

Here are the details:

Set against the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles, L.A. Noire is the story of decorated veteran and newly minted detective Cole Phelps as he 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.


L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from L.A. Noire rebuilt specifically for virtual reality, blending breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience.


L.A. Noire for the Nintendo Switch features the complete original game and all additional downloadable content, with specific enhancements including 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 for portable detective work.


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. Plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, these versions capture the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before.

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I’ll play it, no matter the format.

    Did we really need a L.A. Noire on nexgen? I mean it was a great game and worthy to play through once, but that’s about it. Far better games form Rockstar that have bigger replay value than this..

    • Yeah, not sure why we’re getting the PS4/XBO versions. They’ll probably make money off people who never played it. The Switch version I get.

    Wow I would actually be keen on some sandbox on Switch…this will be very cool on the go

  • Wesley

    Dammit, would love to play this again, but lets be real here… i wont…
    I guess its for the people that missed out, and if thats the case, i would say go for it!

    I would have much preferred a sequel though.

    I just have 1 question though…. IS THIS WHY WE ARE WAITING SO LONG FOR RDR2!?!?!

    • I don’t think so. This is merely something to fill some extra $$$ that they originally planned for RDR2, while we wait for that to launch. This project, I think, happened very quickly and was done by a team that has nothing to do with the progress of RDR2.

    Holy moly, can’t wait to play this in VR. Rockstars first title in VR.
