L.A. Noire PC release date, system requirements announced

Rockstar Games announced this morning that L.A. Noire will be heading to a PC near you on November 8 in North America, November 11 in Europe. The PC port will be available not only at retail, but also on Steam and OnLive.

The PC version, dubbed the “Complete Edition”, adds in NVIDIA 3D Vision support and includes enhanced resolution and graphic details, your standard keyboard mapping and gamepad support, and it includes all of the previously-released L.A. Noire DLC missions by way of a multi-use code.

Rockstar talks up how the PC version of L.A. Noire will run on a “wide range” of PCs, but if you were planning on playing it fully maxed out, the recommended system requirements are actually quite a bit steep.

Don’t just take my word for it, though – see for yourself.
