For fans who are hungry for all things L.A. Noire, Rockstar Games has implemented a service for the game that will afford players a new way to pre-order DLC. The service is aptly called, Rockstar Pass.
The Rockstar Pass sort of acts like a season pass for all L.A. Noire related DLC. Once you purchase it, you will immediately have access to all released and upcoming DLC. Individuals who opt to buy the Pass now, before June 14, can get it for 800 MS/$10.00, saving people a huge chunk of money if they had opted to buy DLC individually.
The price will jump up slightly from June 14 on to 960 MS/$12.00. You’ll still be saving some money, but everyone likes having extra MS points just in case.
Check out the trailer for a more visual representation of what you’ll be getting with Rockstar Pass.
The trailer doesn’t show all the DLC that comes with the Rockstar Pass, so below you can find a small summary of each one.
Chicago Piano Machine Gun
A submachine gun that fires .45 caliber bullets that will always be stowed in the trunk of Cole Phelps’ car for that extra edge in a fire fight.
The Broderick Detective Suit
This suit will increase Phelps’ fist-fighting capabilities and increase his damage resiliency. Guns always kill, but it takes a real man to beat someone to death.
The Sharpshooter Detective Suit
Counterpart to the Broderick suit, the Sharpshooter increases Phelps’ accuracy with pistols and rifles. That guy who made the comment about real men beating someone to death was shot by the man in the Sharpshooter suit.
The Badge Pursuit Challenge
This feature will add another item collection challenge in the form of 20 badges hidden around Los Angeles. Collection of all adds experience points for using Intuition and a Button Man suit, allowing Phelps to carry extra ammunition for all weapons.
The Naked City Vice Case
Yes, the once-thought suicide turned murder case of Julie Randal that spawned a film also finds its way into L.A. Noire and it’s up to Phelps to crack it.
A Slip Of The Tongue
A traffic case that doesn’t quite add up. The owner of a crashed vehicle says the car is his, but it is reported stolen. When he shows the pink slip and bill of sale, Phelps and his partner discover there’s much more than meets the eye.
Those last two cases were available from GameStop and Wal-Mart, respectively. However, if you didn’t get a chance to pre-order the game when the bonuses were available, now is your chance to get not just the cases but the rest of the current DLC as well.
You can check out the trailers for A Slip Of The Tongue and The Naked City now to see what you’re going to be getting into. There will also be two new DLC cases this summer that will also be included in your purchase of the Rockstar Pass. The Nicholson Electroplating arson case, coming June 21. The second case will be one everyone might be familiar with at this point: The Reefer Madness vice case, which will be arriving July 12.
Yes, you will finally be able to investigate 1940s marijuana usage, and it’s probably going to be a doozy.
Rockstar is showing a lot of support for their latest game and if this is any indication of how they will be handling future community support, they are on the right track.
L.A. Noire is available now for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
