LA Noire Finally Gets PC Release Date, Features

Maximum PC Staff

Good news, aspiring gumshoes, dicks, and other old timey phrases that have seriously not aged well: LA Noire has cast an eerily realistic smile in our favorite platform's direction. Come November 8 , you'll finally be able to take on a virtual life of thrilling detective work – and mid-1900s social issues! You'll also be able to turn random meaningless garbage over reeeeeally slowly .

So, what are we getting in exchange for our saintly patience/teeth-grinding jealousy? Well, er, a few things, anyway. Foremost, PC players receive all previously released DLC right out of the box – including the Nicholson Electroplating Arson case, the Reefer Madness Vice case, The Consul’s Car Traffic case, The Naked City Vice case, and A Slip of the Tongue Traffic case. Also, just in case: Case, case, case. Now the word's all... weird to you, right? You're welcome.

Beyond that, though, Rockstar's trumpeting – as actual features – the game's ability to “run on a wide range of PCs and feature increased resolution and graphical detail along with keyboard remapping and gamepad functionality, as well as support for NVIDIA 3D Vision.”

Oh well, it could certainly be a whole hell of a lot worse. And hey, flawed though it may be, we can't complain too much about getting the chance to play another great game – even if said game is basically a point-and-click adventure gussied up with dashing '40s fashion and meticulous jowl animations. Yes, it's a PC game at heart, but such is the world we live in.
