The remaster isn't releasing on PC because it doesn't add anything the PC version doesn't already have. You can already play it at 4K and even unlock the framerate which the remaster surely won't allow because the facial capture was done at 30fps. It also only costs like $5 on sale and not $50-65 lolBryson wrote: ↑Sep 10th, 2017 11:11 amThe problem with these remasters is you can already play the remaster now... it''s called the PC version. I was thinking about playing this game about a week ago hoping they would release a remaster and here we are! I'm still not sure if I should play the PC version or wait for the remaster.

The other improvements say there will be new lighting and new camera angles available that were not in the original release which will be available on all platforms.The PC release will be named LA Noire: The VR Case Files and includes ‘seven select cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for a virtual reality experience on the HTC Vive system’. There’s no mention of Oculus Rift support.

That's my point! You can already play these games at higher resolutions and frame rates than many of these remasters! I usually prefer to play on the console when possible. I like to get the achievements, just makes the game feel more complete that way especially when I really like a game and LA Noire seems like a real gem from what I've seen/played. Thing is it really worth shelling out an extra $50-60 for the remastered console version when you can get it for $5 on the PC?ReeGee wrote: ↑Sep 10th, 2017 2:21 pmThe remaster isn't releasing on PC because it doesn't add anything the PC version doesn't already have.

It also mentions high-resolution textures. I wonder if those are new updated HD textures and if it will look better than the current gen PC textures?XFactor11 wrote: ↑Sep 10th, 2017 2:31 pmA PC VR version is releasing for the HTC Vive only.

One of those new camera options is an in-close over the shoulder perspective.

This game was made so long ago that I can't imagine them actually putting in that kind of effort to upgrade all the textures nevermind animations but would be cool if I was wrong. I'm guessing this turns out to be a quick cash grab for the new consoles and a short VR gimmick for PC. If they were actually putting in substantial work on the base game remaster then I think it would've been announced for PC as well
agreed but they very often have been exactly that

um, that's usually what remasters entail. Upping the res, maybe new textures. Maybe using a newer version of the engine.Buggy166 wrote: ↑Sep 11th, 2017 2:37 pmremaster means internals are also improved, or new. Like textures, animations, etc. PCs can have higher resolutions, which is great, but how well does a 720p texture look in 4K? I'll give you a hint. It looks llike a 720p texture.
Remasters are supposed to be a bit more than just "take a slider and go to 4K with it".

animations can be improved without it being a remake. A remake means the game play is touched upon. Animation curves being smoothed out or slightly adjusted to fix lipsync isnt the same thing. Mass Effect Andromeda did it for their facial anims and that wasnt anything close to a "remake", but definitely a "remaster" of that portion of the game.
