The L.A. Noire remaster is looking sharp in 4K



Rockstar is revisiting its 2011 detective adventure L.A. Noire with a remaster for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and even Nintendo Switch. It's maybe not our first choice of game for the company to spruce up and re-release, but that's what we’re getting on November 14.

How's it look? Great, I'd say. In terms of specific touch-ups, the official line from Rockstar is to expect "enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures, and more."

This latest trailer is a hint of what it’ll look like at 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

As a reminder, the Switch version will have "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."

My memory of L.A. Noire is reserved exclusively for Cole Phelps' funny facial expressions, the basic path his career takes over the course of the game, and not liking the ending. I couldn't begin to tell you about the individual cases, so I'm probably overdue for a replay. That said, if I'm returning to 1940s Los Angeles, I'd prefer to do so with L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive -- even if it is only seven cases, I bet this type of game lends itself well to virtual reality.
