L.A. Noire DLC Offers Players New Cases To Play. New Ways To Pay.

A handful of downloadable content is coming to detective game L.A. Noire. The DLC includes standalone cases, in-game items and challenges.

“With its blend of real crime influences and noir atmosphere, L.A. Noire contains boundless potential for new stories and new cases,” said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games, in an official release. “The four new cases are strong standalone stories that sit perfectly alongside the main game.”

Starting today, “The Naked City” DLC case (320 Microsoft Points), “A Slip of The Tongue” DLC case (320 Microsoft Points), Broderick Detective Suit and Gun (80 Microsoft Points), Sharpshooter Detective Suit and Gun (80 Microsoft Points), The Badge Pursuit Challenge (160 Microsoft Points), and Chicago Piano Machine Gun (free community unlock) are available.

On June 21, “Nicholson Electroplating Disaster” DLC case will be released, and “Reefer Madness” DLC case follows on July 12. Both are priced at 320 Microsoft Points.

Also starting today, you can buy the L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass, getting access to all offered DLC. A limited time offer, it costs $US10 (PlayStation Network) or 800 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE), which is half price what all the DLC costs individually. The DLC can be downloaded once it becomes available.


  • I’m actually tempted to hop on Xbox Live and grab that L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass so when I get around to buying L.A. Noire I have all the DLC for it too.

  • Ok so I’ll buy the half price one for sure but I’m scratching my head at the point of the different guns… the ones in the game were powerful enough, it’s not like RDR or GTA where the guns made a massive difference to playing style? Pistols were very powerful, shotguns were lethal as hell, machineguns were basically the uber gun… I dunno. More cases will be nice though.

    I hope Cole’s the star of these and not Jack… it was a bit annoying that he’s the character you finish the game as. Didn’t like him.

  • Picked up the R* pass. 800 points for all the pre-order DLC and the two yet-to-be-released DLC is awesome at that price.

  • Finished this game over the weekend and loved it, I just wanted to keep playing. Can’t wait for more.

    I just hope the Australian prices aren’t too inflated. 😛
