Get Phelps on the case; it looks like LA Noire: The VR Case Files is finally coming to PSVR.
This abridged adaptation of Rockstar and Team Bondi’s divisive detective game hit PC VR headsets in 2017. It took a choice selection of cases from the original game and directly translated them for headsets. As with most high-end PC VR games, we’ve since been waiting for confirmation of a PSVR version. This week, the European games rating board, PEGI, gave a PS4 version an 18 rating.
While not official confirmation, it does make an impending announcement likely. It’s surprising it’s taken this long but, then again, porting to the less powerful PS4 hardware can be an intense and costly process.
If true, we’d hope to see the PSVR version arriving later this year. PSVR’s had a strong 2019 thus far with releases like Blood & Truth and, from tomorrow, No Man’s Sky. That said, we don’t really know what’s coming for the rest of the year aside from Iron Man VR.
This would certainly make a worthy addition to the line-up. We gave LA Noire: The VR Case Files 8/10 in our review. “Interrogations, crime scenes, and action moments all feel great, but they’re too few and far between with only seven total cases,” David Jagneaux wrote. “But given the scope and abbreviated implementation of one of gaming’s most unique properties, LA Noire VR is an absolutely riveting adventure.”
