After launching a free “Smuggler’s Run” update for GTA Online, Rockstar Games now announces new versions of the blockbuster detective thriller, L.A. Noire to release on four new platforms — Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and VR.

“We’re excited to bring L.A. Noire’s unique mix of real detective work, classic Hollywood atmosphere and thrilling action to these new platforms,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “Now with a choice of spectacular virtual reality, stunning 4K, or the freedom of portable play, these enhanced versions are a perfect opportunity for players to experience this richly detailed world in a whole new way.”

The VR spinoff is essentially Rockstar’s debut in virtual reality, and it’s titled LA Noire: The VR Case Files, which features seven select cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for a virtual reality experience on the HTC VIVE system.

L.A. Noire takes place in the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles as decorated veteran and newly minted detective, Cole Phelps investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes.

Availability is scheduled for Tuesday, November 14, 2017
