Purchase The Rockstar Pass, save some dough on L.A. Noire DLC
As soon as our dear PlayStation Store returns you can purchase ‘The Rockstar Pass’ for $10. With the pass gamers are granted access to a total of eight individual pieces of downloadable content, thus netting a 50% savings versus patchwork download of each piece.
Purchase of the pass before June 14 will secure the $10 price tag, after that the price will jump to $12.
The breadth of the DLC includes all pre-order cases, collectibles, challenges and future downloadable cases as they become available.
Below is the list of downloads that one can expect to receive:
The Chicago Piano Machine Gun (Free)
The Chicago Piano, used by both law enforcement officers and criminals, was favored for its reliability, ergonomics, compact size, large 45-round cartridge, and high rate of automatic fire. This bonus weapon will be stored in the trunk of Detective Cole Phelps’ car throughout L.A. Noire, ensuring that extra firepower is always close at hand.
The Broderick Detective Suit ($0.99 PSN / Free with Rockstar Pass)
The Broderick unlockable suit boosts Cole Phelps’ fist-fighting abilities and resilience to damage. Throughout L.A. Noire, Phelps will inevitably encounter suspects or persons of interest who prove resistant to arrest. Phelps’ hand-to-hand fighting skills could be called into action in these cases and the Broderick suit, which enhances his fighting abilities, will help give Cole the edge in making that collar.
The Sharpshooter Detective Suit ($0.99 PSN / Free with Rockstar Pass)
The Sharpshooter unlockable suit enhances your aim with rifles and pistols. Always a worst case scenario for any Detective working a case, there are inevitably occasions when pursuing or confronting a suspect escalates to gunfire. In these shootout situations, the Sharpshooter suit gives Cole extra aiming precision to take criminals down.
The Badge Pursuit Challenge ($1.99 PSN / Free with Rockstar Pass)
Hidden around L.A. Noire’s beautiful recreation of 1947 Los Angeles are 20 police badges to find and collect. Find all 20 of these badges to unlock the dapper Button Man Detective suit which provides extra ammo for all weapons. Each badge also provides 5 additional XP which will help further unlock Intuition Points – special credits that can be used to give Phelps a key investigative insight when he needs it most.
The Naked City Vice Case ($3.99 PSN / Free with Rockstar Pass)
Julia Randall, a stunning young fashion model with the world at her feet, is found dead, floating in her own bathtub. To the Homicide Squad it looks like a textbook society suicide – a glamorous life come to a nasty end – but coroner Malcolm Carruthers remains unconvinced. It falls to Detectives Phelps and Earle to work the scene, and determine which of Miss Randall’s many vices finally killed her.
A Slip of the Tongue Traffic Case ($3.99 PSN / Free with Rockstar Pass)
When a suspect caught behind the wheel of a stolen car claims to have bought the vehicle fair and square, Detectives Phelps and Bekowsky are unimpressed. When he produces a pink slip and bill of sale as proof, they sit up and take notice. There follows an investigation that will throw up bumbling car thieves, double talking auto dealers, and a theft racket that stretches across Los Angeles and the state line.
