L.A. Noire: Rockstar Adds Extra Support with Direct X 11
Rockstar Games is providing more support for gamers who own and play the PC version of L.A. Noire, which has become the best example so far of facial motion capture in video games. Direct X 11 support has been confirmed for the title. This additional support will lead to better game enjoyment as systems that either use Windows 7 or Windows Vista will go through significant enhancement when DX11 graphics cards are used.
PC owners may be able to choose and switch between two renderers, the Direct X 9 and Direct X 11. The software will also perform checks that will ensure that the video resolution chosen by the system will be compatible with the video game. Undoubtedly, this additional support is good news to PC gamers. However, others are waiting for some other news – the confirmation of a sequel. Rockstar Games has made it clear that no more DLC will be coming to L.A. Noire. A future installment has not been set aside as an idea, however. The developer is still focused on the upcoming launch of Grand Theft Auto 5 to talk about an L.A. Noire sequel right now. The GTA 5 trailer has been released a few months ago but fans do not really have much to go on yet. In other GTA news, parent company Take Two has just trademarked ‘GTA TV’ and ‘Rockstar TV’. So, it looks like there will be a television program that will be focused on talking about the GTA franchise or even Rockstar Games as a whole.
Rival Ubisoft, meanwhile, is also focused on its own unique project. It is partnering with Electronic Arts to deliver new DLC to Final Fantasy 13-2 players that will enable protagonist Noel to don the clothes of Ezio Auditore da Firenze from Assassin’s Creed. Mass Effect 3 clothes may also be making it into the Final Fantasy world.
