Rockstar Games Reveal Required PC Specification for L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files

Rockstar Games is making its VR debut today, with a somewhat demanding new rendition of L.A. Noire.

This year has seen the holiday period flooded with big name videogame publishers jumping into virtual reality (VR). While Ubisoft and Electronic Arts (EA) lightly treaded the waters last year, 2017 has seen Bethesda Game Studios arrive with a barrage of new releases and now it’s the turn of Rockstar Games, with L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files set to launch for HTC Vive today.

L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files is an adaptation of the original L.A. Noire, bringing several case files into the new medium of VR for the first time. In addition to adding a VR exclusive area to the videogame, Rockstar Games has taken the time to update numerous objects and effects to make them suitable for the new perspective offered by VR.

Last month VRFocus got hands-on with the videogame, stating in a preview of L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files: “The depth of detail in the character animation and the huge variety of gameplay opportunities is second-to-none in within VR software at present. While there are many areas in which the visual fidelity appears to be lacking – character models aside, of course – L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files is undoubtedly a VR experience of the highest caliber.”

L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files was originally intended to launch alongside the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch remakes of the original title, however a last minute delay saw the release date pushed back to today, 15th December 2017.
