Rockstar Studios announced earlier today that their game L.A. Noire will be playable on PCs later this year.
In an announcement that surprised many, Rockstar explains that L.A. Noire,
“…will run on a wide range of PCs and feature customization, including keyboard remapping and gamepad functionality to both optimize and customize the performance and user experience. Along with increased fidelity and improved graphical enhancements, the PC version will feature 3D support for an even greater sense of interaction and immersion within a painstakingly detailed 1940s Los Angeles.”
So while I am happy to be able to play Noire after hearing so many great reviews about the game, I am a little disappointed to not hear anything about Rockstar’s 2010 hit, Red Dead Redemption. For whatever reason, to my knowledge, Red Dead Redemption is the only modern Rockstar game that has yet to appear on PC. I would love to see how beautiful that game would run on my Hulk-like compy, seeing as how it already looked fantastic on my 5 year old Xbox 360.
