Rockstar Unveils Plans for L.A. Noire DLC

In an extreme change of pace, early adopters can actually get something cheaper than others for once.

L.A. Noire

Rockstar today made public its intentions to bring forth 11 pieces of DLC (some have already released) for their recent hit, L.A. Noire. The content ranges in quality from “sounds awesome”, all the way on down to “horse armor grade”. Furthermore, only three of them have not been released today or previously. Here’s the list in full:


  • Chicago Lightning Detective Suit (Social Club only) – May 17
  • L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass  – May 31
  • “The Naked City” DLC case – May 31
  • “A Slip of The Tongue” DLC case – May 31
  • Broderick Detective Suit and Gun – May 31
  • Sharpshooter Detective Suit and Gun – May 31
  • The Badge Pursuit Challenge – May 31
  • Chicago Piano Machine Gun (free community unlock) – May 31
  • L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass (standard price) – June 14
  • “Nicholson Electroplating Disaster” DLC case – June 21
  • “Reefer Madness” DLC case – July 12

Anyone who plunks down cash for a Rockstar Pass will gain access to all of these downloads, at no additional charge. How much will a pass set you back, you ask? Well, if you jump on it now, you can snag one for just ten bucks on PSN or 800 MS Points on XBL. This timed offer will run until an undisclosed date, at which time the cost will get jacked up to $20 or 1600 points. Usually, gamers who buy things later get the deals — so it’s refreshing to see early adopters catch a break for once.

Those who aren’t interested in being at the height of late 40s fashion, can instead opt to simply buy the actual cases for four bucks a pop (320 points) when they release. Rockstar had this to say about the two cases coming out down the road (Nicholson and Reefer): “Inspired both by famous noir fiction and real-life crimes taken straight from the headlines, these downloadable cases will provide unique experiences for players independent of the game’s primary storyline.” Happy sleuthing, detectives.
