The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of L.A. Noire received great receptions, however PC gamers have not yet had a chance to get some hands-on times with Rockstar’s crime-based game, well we now know when the PC reelase will come and what technical specifications your PC will need – interestingly the PC version of the game is called L.A. Noire Complete Edition.
Let’s start with the release date, it will arrive in North America on November 8th for around $49.99, if you live in Europe you will have to wait until November 11th and you will have to pay €49.99 / £39.99. We can also confirm that L.A. Noire is coming to OnLive.
In terms of technical specifications you will need to be running Windows 7, Windows Vista (SP1) or Windows XP (SP3) with an Intel Dual Core 2.2GHz / AMD Dual Core 2.4Ghz or better CPU, at least 2GB of RAM, 16GB of free hard drive space, a DirectX 9 compatible sound card, a DVD drive and a beefy video card. We are told that anything from NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 512MB to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 1536MB is supported, alternatively you could run it with a Radeon HD 3000 512MB GPU, up to the Radeon HD 6850 1024MB.
Obviously future graphics cards will be supported and the better your graphics card the better visuals you can expect to see – currently it is unclear what will max out its visuals, so we will have to keep you posted if and when we hear more information on this. One thing which we can confirm is the fact that there is NVIDIA 3D Vision support.
The Complete Edition name is quite apt, this is because it comes with access codes for all of the game’s DLC, this means you won’t have to fork out extra for the “Nicholson Electroplating”, “Reefer Madness”, “The Consul’s Car”, “The Naked City” or “A Slip of the Tongue” DLC – we’re not sure about other sidequests which PS3 and 360 gamers have seen.
