L.A. Noire screenshot from the PC version

L.A. Noire had a ton of potential, as well as an equally large amount of great ideas behind it, but due to some comically bad mismanagement it ended up being just slightly above mediocre. With that in mind, I hope you can now understand just how surprising it is to hear that Rockstar Games are not only bringing L.A. Noire to modern consoles, but to VR devices as well!

The console version will feature all of the original content and DLC, as well as a variety of visual and audio enhancements, including things such as 4K support for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. More importantly, the remastered version will also be making its way to the Nintendo Switch, just in case you wanted to solve some crimes while on the bus.

As for the HTC Vive version, you can expect to see seven of the original self-contained cases from L.A. Noire, all rebuilt specifically for virtual reality. I'm afraid there aren't any more details to share, but if Rockstar could just fix some of the bizarre facial animations the VR version will easily have the potential to be genuinely amazing, even if the gameplay itself is a bit simplistic. Whatever the case may be, we at least won't have to wait for very long to find out as all of the various L.A. Noire versions will be coming on November 14th. If you're interested, you can learn a tiny bit more by heading over to the official website.
