L.A. Noire remaster now available with enhancements on Xbox One

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.

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.
