Rockstar Bringing L.A. Noire to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch On November 14

Published

on

Well, this is unexpected. Six years after its original release in 2011, Rockstar Games have announced that their murder mystery adventure L.A. Noire will be heading to PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch, making it the first Rockstar game to release on a Nintendo system since Bully back in 2008. A brand new VR version was also announced.

The Switch version will feature the entire game and all its DLC, in addition to Switch specific adjustments including motion control features. The Xbox One and PS4 versions will also include all DLC and will feature superior visuals and lighting effects from the original release. The VR version, on the other hand, will not include the full game, but will instead contain seven individual cases, all of which have been rebuilt in VR.

Originally made for a budget of $50 million, L.A. Noire was developed by the Australian-based Team Bondi and tells the story of LAPD detective Cole Phelps as he hunts serial killers and investigates a multitude of other gruesome and horrendous and crimes across the City of Angels. The facial capture technology used was considered groundbreaking at the time, and still looks pretty damn impressive today.

All new versions of L.A. Noire will release on November 14.

4 NEW VERSIONS OF L.A. NOIRE COMING NOVEMBER 14
Today, we’re proud to announce new versions of the blockbuster detective thriller L.A. Noire, are scheduled to release on November 14, 2017 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Alongside these three new console versions, we’re taking our first steps into virtual reality with L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, featuring seven select cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for a virtual reality experience on the HTC VIVE.

Set against the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles, L.A. Noire is the story of decorated veteran and newly minted detective Cole Phelps as he investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. Each successfully solved case brings Phelps greater success, but also brings him closer to the dark criminal heart of post-war L.A.

L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from L.A. Noire rebuilt specifically for virtual reality, blending breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience.

L.A. Noire for the Nintendo Switch features the complete original game and all additional downloadable content, with specific enhancements including a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.

L.A. Noire for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One delivers the complete original game and all additional downloadable content with a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures and more. Plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, these versions capture the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before.

Robert Pattinson Joins The Lighthouse From the Director of The Witch

Published

on

Robert Eggers made us all turn our heads with his directing debut The Witch a few years back, and so we are eagerly awaiting his new film The Lighthouse from RT Features and A24.

“I am extremely happy to be working with RT, A24, and Parts & Labor again,” Eggers says. “Along with New Regency, they are providing me and my collaborators with the support and freedom to make this film the way it needs to be made. It’s a privilege.”

Last week we learned that Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of Eggers’ new film and today we have word via Deadline that Robert Pattinson will be joining in on the spooky fun as well.

RT Features’ Teixeira called Pattinson “one of the most talented actors working today. We are excited to work with him and Eggers, a singular filmmaker whose unique vision we support. Our collaboration on The Witch was flawless, and we look forward to reuniting along with our partners at A24, Parts & Labor and New Regency.”

The film is being described as “a fantasy horror story set in the world of old sea-faring myths” and is all set to go into production in the spring.

A24 said in a statement that they are “beyond excited to be partnering again with Rob Eggers, a true visionary and one of the great filmmakers of his generation. This new script blew us away — it creates a totally unique and ambitious universe and manages to somehow feel scary, suspenseful, wondrous and beautiful all at the same time. We can’t wait to work with Rob and his team and our partners at RT Features, Parts & Labor and New Regency to help bring this story to life.”

A24 acquired worldwide rights and will distribute the film in the U.S. New Regency (The Revenant) has joined the project as a co-financier.

“I love that we’re getting the band back together again,” Parts & Labor’s Jay Van Hoy says. “This time with old friend and new star player Youree Henley. Like The Witch, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

We’ll let you know as soon as we hear more on Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse, but until then let us know what you think thus far below!

The film is directed by Robert Eggers (The Witch) from a script by Eggers and Max Eggers. Rodrigo Teixeira and Lourenço Sant’ Anna are producing alongside Jay Van Hoy and Youree Henley and the film stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe.

The Lighthouse begins shooting this spring.
