Keep your detective hat on because Team Bondi and Rockstar Games are going to be placing quite a few new cases on your desk this summer. You’ve been doing a great job, impressing the heads upstairs, who would like to keep you around for a longer tour of duty.
Rockstar Games have officially revealed their plan to release downloadable content for L.A. Noire through late July, including four new cases for Detective Cole Phelps to tackle. The previously announced Best Buy promotional case, Nicholson Electroplating, is on the list. All of the downloadable cases can be purchased individually for a total of twenty dollars, but Rockstar is going to be offering a pass, which allows gamers to pay a set fee of ten dollars for access to every piece of offered DLC. Its price will go up to twelve dollars after that date.
The first two cases (A Slip of the Tongue and The Naked City,) which were both bundled in as retailer pre-order bonuses, are now available. That is if you own the XBOX 360 version of the game. Trying to access the PlayStation Store through the game will cause it to crash, due to the fact that the service is not yet up. Hopefully that will change soon.
