L.A. Noire hits Xbox One this November – 4K on Xbox One X

Rockstar Games has announced that its renowned detective thriller, L.A. Noire, is hitting Xbox One later this year. Over six years since its original release back in 2011, the neo-noir action-adventure game is being remastered for current generation consoles, with special improvements in store for Xbox One X.

Among the enhancements of the new version, Xbox One owners will be treated to a resolution bump to native 1080p, alongside updated textures and reworked lighting. Furthermore, those picking up the Xbox One X will also be in for a treat – the game will hit store shelves shortly after the console's launch at 4K resolution.

Taking place in 1940's Los Angeles, L.A. Noire follows Cole Phelps, a detective, and member of the LAPD, on a series of cases across the district. Drawing heavy influence from films of the era in both its themes and presentation, the game provided a relatively unique premise, especially from a high-profile publisher like Rockstar. At the time, the game was also praised for its take on facial animation, which filters heavily into interrogation mechanics as a detective.

L.A. Noire for Xbox One is currently scheduled to release on November 14, bundling together both the base game and all post-launch downloadable content. Although specific pricing for the game is yet to be disclosed, it's safe to assume this will be a full-price $60 launch.

With the Xbox One X releasing only seven days prior, LA Noire for Xbox One should be a welcome sight to see for many. Are you planning to pick up the game? Let us know in the comments.
