Another hot VR game from a famous publisher will be releasing this week. Rockstar Games has released their new immersive experience called LA Noire: The VR Case Files on HTC Vive. The game is priced at $29.99 and is available on Steam.
Rockstar Games is famous for publishing hit AAA titles such as GTA V, Red Dead Redemption, and the original LA Noire game.
Original Game Storyline
For those unfamiliar with the title, LA Noire takes place in the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles as decorated veteran and newly minted detective, Cole Phelps 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. The game was an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival for its cinematic approach to gameplay and narrative back when it was originally released on the console platform.
About LA Noire: The VR Case Files
In LA Noire: The VR Case Files, users will be placed directly in the shoes of Detective Cole Phelps as you solve brutal crimes, plots, and conspiracies inspired by real cases from 1947 in Los Angeles. During this time, L.A. was a very corrupt town with a lot of violence so users should gear up for some action.
The experience will feature 7 cases specifically rebuilt for VR. The cases will range from Traffic, Arson, Homicide, and more.
- Search for clues by grabbing, inspecting and manipulating objects
- Get behind the wheel and drive to your next crime scene
- Engage in chases, fistfights and shootouts as you track down suspects
- Build your case by making notes or drawing freehand in your detective’s notebook
- Interrogate witnesses and use your wits to separate truth from lies in a city where everyone has something to hide
You can purchase LA Noire: The VR Case Files today on Steam for $29.99. Again, the game is only available for the HTC Vive currently. Rockstar Games always does a great job with their games and we will be expecting a similar result from the upcoming VR experience.
