Following up on the OnLive news of the day, we already hinted at something regarding L.A. Noire in our previous article announcing OnLive’s service launching today. Well one of the major titles you can look forward to showing up with custom touch screen controls is Rockstar’s and Team Bondi’s hit game.
While currently, at this moment in time, the game still requires either controller or keyboard/mouse combo to play it, Rockstar will be releasing a new set of controls for L.A. Noire specifically designed for playing the game on your Android tablet or phone.
If you are unfamiliar with L.A. Noire for some reason, it is a game set in the 1940’s where you play as Cole Phepls (acted by Mad Men‘s Aaron Staton) who is out and about solving crimes, usually murders, and improving his policing career at the same time. The game itself received a lot of attention when it was released recently onto console systems due to it’s realistic way of portraying the characters right down to the smallest facial details and movements.
There will be a total of 25 Triple-A titles that will be coming with a new control scheme for OnLive on Android and L.A. Noire has been confirmed to be one of those titles. No specific date has been released as to when the new control scheme will be available. L.A. Noire is priced at $49.99 and, of course, if you have already bought it through OnLive for your PC then you won’t have to buy it again to play it on your Android device.
As more information about the other titles comes out, we will be sure to keep everyone posted.
