Listen up, gumshoe. I know you've been digging https://www.trueachievements.com/LA-Noire-xbox-360.htm. Don't deny it. Actually, go ahead and deny it; I'll call you a liar, pull out my notebook and show you the evidence to prove it. You love it, your brother loves it, your buddy loves it, you can't get enough of it! And, because of that, Rockstar has announced DLC plans to give you MORE of it.

Today, Rockstar has announced that the teased "Rockstar Pass" is now available.

Once purchased, the Rockstar Pass will give gamers access to all of the previously retailer-exclusive DLC plus two other cases; bringing the total to four unique cases, two detective suits and a collectable challenge. The retailer-exclusive DLC is detailed in our previous coverage.

If you prefer to purchase the DLC a la carte, Rockstar has you covered as each DLC piece can be purchased individually.

* "Badge Pursuit Challenge" - 160 MSP
* Sharpshooter Detective Suit - 80 MSP
* Broderick Detective Suit - 80 MSP
* "The Naked City" Vice Case - 320 MSP
* "A Slip of the Tongue" Traffic Case - 320 MSP

Rockstar has also confirmed plans for two new DLC cases. The first, the "Nicholson Electroplating" Arson Case (which we originally covered here) will be released on June 21st. The second case is titled the "Reefer Madness" Vice Case and is scheduled to be released on July 12th. Each case will cost 320 MSP if purchased separately.

All of the cases ("The Naked City" Vice Case, "A Slip of the Tongue" Traffic Case, "Nicholson Electroplating" Arson Case, and "Reefer Madness" Vice Case) contain new achievements.

If you're in the mood for something free (and who isn't!?) Rockstar is giving all gamers free access to the Chicago Piano machine gun which is described with the following:

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 Chicago Piano can be downloaded here

Finally, and best of all, is that purchasing the Rockstar Pass will get you ALL of this DLC at one low price.

Now, I know what some of you are thinking. You're thinking, "That sounds like a great deal, OBJ, but how much is this Rockstar Pass going to cost me?"

I'm glad you asked, concerned gamer! The Rockstar Pass is currently priced at ONLY 800 MSP (a 50% discount on buying the DLC a la carte)! You best act fast, though, because the price will be going up to 960 MSP on June 14th. The Rockstar Pass can be downloaded here
