L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition Now Available for PC

L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition is available today across North America today via retail stores and digital distributors, including Steam, Amazon, Direct2Drive and OnLive (look for it Friday in Europe and Australia).

In addition to the original full game, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition for PC includes a multi-use code to access all the previously released downloadable content from the original console versions, including the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case, the “Reefer Madness” Vice case, “The Consul’s Car” Traffic case, “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case.

Developed by Rockstar Leeds, the PC version of L.A. Noire runs on a wide range of PCs and features increased resolution and graphical detail along with keyboard remapping and gamepad functionality, plus support for NVIDIA 3D Vision for an even greater sense of interaction and immersion. For system specs and more details visit and be sure to look for an all-new Official PC Launch Trailer later today commemorating the release.



Pre-purchase L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition on Steam or OnLive for 10% off

Though L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition is set to launch on Steam and OnLive next month, plunking down the cash now will net you a price break. A pre-purchase will save you 10% off the final asking price, bringing it down to $44.99. L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition comes packed with all of the game’s DLC.

Seems like an open-and-shut case for us, though you may wish to investigate other leads — up to you, detective!


L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition Also Coming for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

If you still have yet to experience the unique blend of breathtaking action and true detective work that is L.A. Noire on your console of choice, today we’re pleased to announce that L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, in addition to being made available for PC, is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this November.

Similar to its PC counterpart, L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition on consoles will feature all of the previously released DLC including the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case, the “Reefer Madness” Vice case, “The Consul’s Car” Traffic case, “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case – as well as the Badge Pursuit Challenge and all weapons and outfits released to date.

Developed by Team Bondi in conjunction with Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire is a crime thriller set in post World War II Los Angeles. As Detective Cole Phelps, players must search for clues, interrogate suspects and chase down criminals to solve a series of cases inspired by real world incidents. As he rises through the ranks of the LAPD, Phelps comes face-to-face with the corrupt heart of Los Angeles: from fallen starlets to double-dealing police officers and the vast reaches of the criminal underworld – and finally, the darkness of his own personal demons.

Look for it on store shelves in North America on November 15th and in Europe & Australia on November 18th


Team Bondi officially closing its doors

It’s official folks — the studio behind one of the biggest games of 2011 has officially begun the process of dying. You usually hear of a studio closing after they release a flop, but it would seem that not even L.A. Noire could stop this Australian developer going down.

Documents were filed with the Australian Securities And Investments Commission, notifying that a liquidator has been appointed and that the studio’s administration resigned. Another document has been filed, titled, “Special Resolution to Wind Up Company.”

Team Bondi came under fire earlier this year due to accusations of excessive crunch time and poor working conditions. It also allegedly excluded certain developers from L.A. Noire’s credits, refusing to acknowledge anybody who got fed up and quit before the game was finished.

L.A. Noire hits PC in November

Team Bondi may have hit the skids, but the Australian developer’s debut title has yet to finish up its patrol. Rockstar Games today announced that the PC debut of L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition has been set for November 8 in North America, with a European launch following on November 11.

Justifying the package’s subtitle, the PC edition of L.A. Noire packs in a code to grab all previously released downloadable content from the console versions. The game is being ported over by Rockstar Leeds and supports both keyboard remapping and gamepads. The PC edition will also support Nvidia 3D Vision, something not found on the console editions of the game.

L.A. Noire follows Cole Phelps, a detective entangled in a violent web of vice, corruption, and crime in 1947 Los Angeles. Players jump into the seedy underworld of the metropolis and are tasked with solving a series of murders and other criminal offenses, ranging from arson and drug trafficking to racketeering.


L.A. Noire ‘Complete Edition’ and PC Version Coming in November

Evidence of Rockstar Games reissuing crime thriller L.A. Noire later this year in the form of a “Complete Edition” has reportedly been spotted by Eurogamer Czech. That apparent re-release and the PC version of Team Bondi’s game are supposedly slated for November.

Eurogamer cites its Czech counterpart in its report on the arrival of L.A. Noire Complete Edition, which would presumably bundle the post-release downloadable content with the core experience.

After Rockstar’s re-release of Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition and the forthcoming Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition, a re-release for L.A. Noire just before the busy holiday shopping season would make a lot of sense. Nothing official yet, but we shall soon see.
