Just because L.A. Noire’s developer, Team Bondi, has been
shuffled off this mortal coil, it doesn’t mean that Rockstar Games and Take-Two
Interactive are ready to let the high-selling, popular action game die. While it’s
still going to be a bit before we hear anything about a sequel, it was
announced today that L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition would be releasing for
the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 15, 2011.
Complete Edition will come with the same content that the PC
version released with, with all of the previously released downloadable
content. This includes the Arson case "Nicholson Electroplating", the
Vice case "Reefer Madness", the Traffic case "The Consul's
Car", the Vice case "The Naked City", and the Traffic case "A
Slip of the Tongue." It will also come with the Badge Pursuit Challenge
and all of the weapons and outfits released to date. "The Consul's
Car" actually came with new copies of the PlayStation 3 version, so while it's not new to them, it's actually the only way to get the DLC if you'd rather play it on the Xbox 360.
There's no price given yet, but odds are it's going to be released at a full $59.99 on account of all of the free downloadable content. Even at that price it's a good deal, and if you held off picking up L.A. Noire this is a fantastic opportunity to grab one of the best games of the year with some bonus content. Then again, with all of the high-quality releases coming in the next few months we're not sure you'll have way too much time to spend noire-ing around the streets of LA yelling at criminals and reading faces.
