Great news for PC gamers who didn’t get to play LA Noire when it was released earlier this year for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Rockstar Games has officially announced that the highly-acclaimed crime solving, film noir heavily-inspired game has a release date for the PC, and it is just over a month away. LA Noire: The Complete Edition will launch on Windows PC, Steam, and OnLive in North America on November 8th 2011.
As the name of the game suggests, LA Noire: The Complete Edition for PC will include the original game and will come with a multi-use code for users to obtain all the previously released downloadable content that is out for console versions of the game. This includes the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case, the “Reefer Madness” Vice case, “The Consul’s Car” Traffic case, “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case.
No word on pricing of the game, but it’s definitely going to be cheaper than buying a brand new console just to play this game (don’t tell me that thought hasn’t crossed your mind before). The PC version of the game is said to run on a wide range of PCs and will feature increased resolution and graphical detail, along with keyboard remapping and gamepad functionality. It will also support NVIDIA 3D Vision if that’s how you like playing your games. The system requirements for the game have also been released:
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

I’m stoked for the PC version of the game and can’t wait for it to drop. Anybody else feel the same way?
