Presenting Pre-Order Exclusive Unlockable Bonus Content when You Pre-Order L.A. Noire: Cases, Challenges, Suits & More

Posted on February 24 2011, 5:30pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Today we're pleased to announce the exclusive content bonuses for L.A. Noire available via retail partners across the US, UK and Canada including special unlockable crime cases, challenges, detective outfits with unique gameplay abilities and more.

Pre-Order with GameStop to get 'The Naked City' Vice Case & Badge Pursuit Challenge
(Also available via Game in the UK, and GameStop in Canada)

‘The Naked City’ Vice Case
In this bonus case from L.A. Noire’s Vice Desk, detective Cole Phelps investigates the supposed suicide of a stunning fashion model. Can you help Cole unravel the truth in a city blighted by drugs, corruption and greed, where the death of a beautiful woman is never as straightforward as it seems?

The Badge Pursuit Challenge
Hidden around L.A. Noire’s beautiful recreation of 1947 Los Angeles are 20 police badges to find and collect. If you can find all 20 of these badges, the dapper Button Man suit will be unlocked 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 you need it most.


Pre-Order with Amazon to get 'The Broderick' Detective Suit
(Also available via Amazon in the UK, and Amazon in Canada)

This unlockable detective suit boosts your fist-fighting capabilities and resilience to damage. Throughout L.A. Noire while working cases, you’ll encounter quite a few suspects and persons of interest who prove to be resistant to arrest. Your hand-to-hand fighting skills will be called into action on these cases – the Broderick suit with its enhanced fighting abilities may be that edge in helping make that collar.


Pre-Order or purchase at launch (while supplies last) with Wal-Mart to get the ‘A Slip of the Tongue’ Traffic Case
(Also available via Play in the UK, and Wal-Mart in Canada)

“A Slip of the Tongue” is a bonus case from the Traffic Desk in which a seemingly run of the mill car theft ends up sparking an explosive investigation into the largest auto fraud racket the city has ever seen.  With the stolen cars piling up and questionable characters at every turn, can you help Cole Phelps crack the biggest case so far in his career?


Pre-Order or purchase at launch (while supplies last) with Best Buy to get 'The Sharpshooter' Detective Suit
(Also available via Zavvi in the UK, and Best Buy in Canada)

The Sharpshooter unlockable detective suit enhances your aim with rifles and pistols. Always a worst case scenario for any detective working a case, there are of course those occasions for Cole Phelps when pursuing a suspect escalates to gunfire. In these tense shootouts, the Sharpshooter suit provides that extra aiming precision to take the criminal down.

Everyone in North America who pre-orders their copy through the Rockstar Warehouse will receive an official L.A. Noire tee-shirt.
Everyone who pre-orders with Target will receive a $5 Gift Card, and get a free Rockstar Games t-shirt if purchasing the game in-store during launch week. All incentive offers are limited in quantity and available while supplies last.

Check out the updated pre-order page at the L.A. Noire official site for links, details and more info – including information on other partners and programs internationally.

    I just bought the game and was wondering if the traffic desk case "The Consul's Car" is going to be available for XBOX 360?

      Well now the Playstation store is back up I have been able to get my dlc. Play did send me 2 codes in one e-mail but the way it was sent made it look like a single code.
      There is a 12 digit code to get the case, had to use the redeem code feature on the store as the game still crashes trying it from there. Then there is a 16 digit code you use on the rockstar site for the soundtrack.

          @BlueHelix-Yeah for the Slip of the tongue and the soundtrack.
          Neither codes work for the 360

              are these going to be released anytime soon for those who did not pre-order the game?

                I would still like to know if I should have been given 2 codes, I recieved one from Play after e-mailing them, that one worked on the soundtrack download but until sony puts the store back up I have no idea if the same code is for the DLC. If it isn't I need to badger some more.

                  Just a Question... I´ve discovered some bugs and issues in the Game. Is there anyone at R* who cares about some customer tips, like a technical support or something... By the Way awesome Game terrific Storyline and marvelous Characters and the acting was phenomenal. Thinking of combining RDR LA-Noire and GTA4... I cant wait for GTA5!

                      @DeadpoolUK you got 2 codes from Did they send those in a single e-mail? If you bought the PS3 version I believe the store needs to be back up to get the DLC.

                        Ok so i am confused! I ordered it from and got the slip of the tongue and the soundtrack. I got an email from play with the codes but the soundtrack code doesn't work. And where do i get the dlc?

                          Maybe I'm missing it but how do I download the detective suit (The Sharpshooter). I have a code but don't know where to enter the code?

                            Glad I saw the post below, I couldn't figure out how to get the soundtrack. I also pre-ordered from in the UK but had to contact them to get a code. Is the same code used for both the dlc case AND the soundtrack? I can't check while playstation store is still down.

                                    R*, how long do the redeem codes for the vairous DLC last before they expire.? I ask since I would prefer to purchase tyhe game for PS3, but we still have no clue as to when the Playstation Network will be back up to redeem anything.

                                          I know that you ain't gonna answer everything but this is a small question.
                                          Are there motorcycles in the game?
