L.A. Noire Remaster – Set For November 14th On Switch, PS4, and Xbox One
An age of remakes, reboots, and remasters may appear to be a tiresome sight, but it does yield that undisputed fact that gamers who missed out on classics have the ability to play them for the very first time. Among games, like Bulletstorm, Rogue Trooper Redux, and Okami, legendary game makers Rockstar are re-releasing L.A. Noire. Originally released in 2009, the open-world detective and action game is making its way to a new audience and new generation of gamers.
L.A. Noire is a story-driven action-adventure game greatly inspired by film noir and mob films of the early 1900’s. The year is 1947, and players take on the role of an up and coming police officer, Cole Phelps. A veteran of WWII, Cole Phelps is dedicated to the truth, justice, and righteousness, but is soon plundered into the greasy underworld of organized crime in 1947.
The game features a dedicated single-player mode, set against an open world. Players explore an intricately detailed 1940’s Los Angeles, exploring areas based on how the city looked at the time. As they explore, they will take on cases, both big and small. L.A. Noire is known for its authenticity and focuses on case-solving.
Players oversee the crime scene, collect, clues, and interrogate witnesses, chasing leads to a conclusion. it is up to the player to decide if suspects are lying or telling the truth. The game also features Rockstar’s hallmarks such as engaging combat and driving sequences as well.
With the remaster, the game will feature all previously released content for the game, including all DLC and updates. L.A. Noire was one of the first games to feature a Season Pass, and a treasure-trove of extra cases were released following the initial offering. L.A. Noire has also been remastered in its presentation, which also includes 4K visual projection.
L.A. Noire launches digitally and physically for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One November 14th.
