Rockstar Games has released screenshots for their upcoming detective VR title L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files.
Unlike the original title, L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files will not be the entire game ported VR. Instead, The VR Case Files will present seven of the original, self-contained cases from the game explicitly rebuilt for virtual reality, including modifications to the combat system and switching the game to a first-person perspective. On top of that, the title will also be Rockstar’s first virtual-reality game — or at least the first one they have developed.
Originally released in 2011, L.A. Noire was developed by Australian Studio Team Bondi and published by Rockstar Games for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and later ported to Windows PCs. Players control Cole Phelps, a police officer and former Marine is investigating numerous crimes in 1940s Los Angeles. During its initial release, the game was cited as an ambitious title, which utilized and pushed MotionScan technology.
In addition to The VR Case Files, Rockstar announced back in September that L.A. Noire is getting an enhanced, re-release on PlayStation 4, Switch and Xbox One, on November 14, 2017. Initially, The VR Case Files was set to launch simultaneously with the other three versions, however, Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive announced last week that the game was delayed.
Currently, L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files is set to be released sometime this December exclusively for the HTC Vive. Check out the new screenshots below:
