Rockstar's detective thriller, L.A. Noire, is now available on Xbox One. This comes six years after the game's 2011 release, bringing a remastered version to current-generation consoles, along with special support for Xbox One X.
L.A. Noire takes place in 1940's Los Angeles, putting players in the shoes of detective Cole Philips, as he solves a number of cases throughout the city. As the name might suggest, L.A. Noire is heavily influenced by films of the period in which it is set, with themes taking on a decidedly noire feel. L.A. Noire is also notable for the tech behind its facial animations, which leverages subtle facial movements to enhance interrogation scenes.
As for what's improved, Xbox One users will see a resolution bump to native 1080p, upgraded textures, and better lighting. Anyone playing on Xbox One X will see further improvements, with full 4K resolution support. The remastered version also includes all of the post-launch DLC along with the base game.
L.A. Noire is available for Xbox One and Xbox One X now for $39.99.
