L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files
The fun of L.A. Noire continues as the L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files are now out for PSVR users to dive into
It has been a long wait, but those holding out for the L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files to finally come to the PSVR can head out and pick it up. Well, they could have already as Rockstar Games released it for the system late last week, but it is still good to have a nice reminder. It is also good to have another VR experience we can undertake on the PS4 after playing through L.A. Noire in general again. It was remastered for the console and all with some fun new bells and whistles. Nonetheless, you can now look to get the VR experience for it all right now if you so choose and want to throw down the cash.
To further entice us all to pick up L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, there are three new minigames in the mix of it all as well as all of the case files we get to experience. There is some boxing, speed car racing, and a shooting gallery all mixed in for when the investigation and interrogation gameplay wears down on you. It can and might happen. You never know. I mean, it did for me in the core run of L.A. Noire and I would have liked to have a few other distractions in the mix. I guess I just needed to hold out until now to truly be able to get all of that.
L.A. Noire — The VR Case Files
L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files — which includes seven self-contained cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for virtual reality — is now available for PlayStation VR.
Step into the painstakingly recreated world of 1940’s Los Angeles through the eyes of Detective Cole Phelps as you solve cases from across all five desks of the original L.A. Noire, including: Upon Reflection, Armed and Dangerous, Buyer Beware, The Consul’s Car, The Silk Stocking Murder, Reefer Madness, and A Different Kind of War – each picked for their suitability to the virtual reality experience.
In addition to cases to solve, L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for PlayStation VR allows Detective Cole Phelps to let off some steam with three fun new minigames designed to take full advantage of the game’s unique VR mechanics:
- Boxing: Step into the ring as Cole Phelps and take on 12 different opponents
- Speedcar Racing: Race classic 1940’s “Speedcar” vehicles against AI opponents on three new dirt tracks
- Shooting Galleries: Keep your eye in with target practice in four different shooting galleries, each with their own challenges, targets and weapons
L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for PlayStation VR also delivers an enhanced technical experience specifically built for the PlayStation system including greater draw distance and upgraded visual fidelity; new sitting and standing modes (including a new “Crouch” button for easier object inspection); enhanced navigation, locomotion and weapon tuning.
