L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition out on November 8, PC specs revealed

la-noire-screen

Rockstar Games moved pretty quickly with L.A. Noire. Usually the developer will release a console game and then wait a year or more before rolling out the PC version. Noire hit stores back in May of this year, and Rockstar already has a release date set for its PC counterpart: November 8 in the United States and November 11 in Europe.

The release is actually L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition, and it’ll be coming to Windows, as well as the Steam and OnLive digital distribution platforms. The title’s “complete” refers to the fact that this PC release will include all downloadable content packs available for consoles in addition to the main game. In all, that includes: “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case, “Reefer Madness” Vice case, “The Consul’s Car” Traffic case, “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case. The whole package will retail for $49.99, which is pretty standard for a PC game.

Rockstar also released the specs for the PC release, which anyone intending to play it on their PC using anything other than OnLive should pay close attention to. It’s actually not a tremendously demanding game from a specs standpoint, which is surprising given the technical wizardry the game puts on display. To run L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition you’ll need:

Operating System: Windows 7 / Windows Vista Service Pack 1 / Windows XP Service Pack 3 / OnLive for PC or Mac;
Processor: Intel Dual Core 2.2GHz to Quad Core 3.2GHz / AMD Dual Core 2.4Ghz to Quad Core 3.2Ghz;
RAM: 2GB to 8GB;
Hard drive space: 16GB;
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 512MB to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 1536MB / Radeon HD 3000 512MB to Radeon HD 6850 1024MB;
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 9 Compatible;
DVD Drive.
