PC gamers may be getting LA Noire a few months later than console gamers, but unlike PS3 and Xbox 360 players, they are getting the "Complete Edition" of the game. On November 8th, Team Bondi's detective thriller will be available on PC, Steam and OnLive.
The PC version is being developed by Rockstar Leeds and will offer "increased resolution and graphical detail." In addition, the publisher is planning a complete keyboard remap for the controls, as well as support for NVIDIA 3D Vision.
The "Complete Edition" will include a "multi-use code" to access all downloadable content from the console versions. The "Nicholson Electroplating" arson case, the "Reefer Madness" vice case, "The Naked City" Vice case, and "A Slip of the Tongue" traffic case--previously bundled via the Rockstar Pass--will be included for free with the PC version. In addition, the previously PS3-exclusive "The Consul's Car" traffic case will also be included.
These additional missions fit in between the main missions, and offer additional insight into the characters. Essentially, PC owners will be able to play a "Director's Cut" of sorts right from the get-go.
