Not only that, but a modified version of the crime game will be available on that date in virtual reality on HTC Vive in a package called LA Noire: The VR Case Files.

LA Noire for PS4 and Xbox One comes with the full version of the original game and all DLC, along with expected updates such as better graphics. This includes "enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures, and more." The game will output at native 1080p for PS4 and Xbox One, and in 4K on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
