L.A. Noire – Coming Soon to a PC Near You

Rockstar Games’ smash console hit, L.A. Noire, is coming to PC in the next quarter, the publishers announced this morning. The story of LAPD officer and later detective Cole Phelps, on a mission to set right a city falling headlong into the pitfalls of its own success, has received rave reviews by virtually all the gaming authorities.

“L.A. Noire is a new type of game that makes players see through a detective’s eyes in 1940s Los Angeles,” said Sam Houser, Rockstar Games’ founder. “Its unique blend of story, action and crime solving will be perfect to play on PC.”

Think 1947.

'He who does not stop a crime when he can, encourages it.'

Hardly surprising, I say, considering Rockstar’s track record of slapping every console game onto the desktop and vice versa. The PC version has been developed by Rockstar Leeds, and will have better and more realistic graphics, along with 3D support. Also, customizations such as user-defined keyboard mappings and gamepad/joystick support will be offered.

It should be noted that, although developed by Team Bondi, L.A. Noire is a game that possesses many of the features of Rockstar’s GTA franchise. It thus fits in very well with the rest of the lineup, and there shouldn’t be any difficulty or ‘adjustment’ required of GTA gamers at all when picking up this title.

Look for the PC version this fall.
