Rockstar provides Direct X 11 support for LA Noire

Gamers playing LA Noire on the PC now have Direct X 11 support.

Game developer Rockstar has provided extra support for gamers playing its ground-braking LA Noire title on PC.

It has been confirmed that Direct X 11 support is now available for the title, which means that players will experience improved performance on systems using both Windows Vista and Windows 7 combined with the DX11 graphics cards.

To make the game further user-friendly for PC owners, there has been an option added to allow the player to switch between Direct X 9 and 11 renderers.

Additional checks will also be performed by the software to ensure that the selected video resolution used by the system is compatible with LA Noire.

It is good news for those playing the game on PC, but most are still holding out for news of a sequel. Rockstar has confirmed there will be no more downloadable content, but a second instalment is not out of the question in the future.

First of all, however, the developer has to get Grand Theft Auto 5 out of the way. A trailer for the latest instalment of the hugely popular franchise was released months ago but little else has come out of Rockstar HQ since then.

However, parent company Take Two has recently trademarked the names GTA TV and Rockstar TV, hinting that the launch of the game may be preceded by some GTE-themed television programming.

Meanwhile, rival firm Unisoft has an innovative project of its own on the go.

The company has confirmed that it has partnered with Electronic Arts for new downloadable content to allow Final Fantasy XII-2 players to dress the game's main character, Noel, as Assassin's Creed's Ezio Auditore da Firenze.

It has now been reported that a similar deal is being agreed to bring clothes from Mass Effect 3 into the FF universe.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801298782-ADNFCR
