GameStop, the worlds largest multichannel retailer of video games, and Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., are proud to announce that customers who pre-order the video game L.A. Noire at a GameStop store or at www.GameStop.com will receive access to two exclusive pieces of downloadable content. The Naked City Vice Case and The Badge Pursuit Challenge will be available to customers via a download code at time of purchase.
We are particularly excited to be partnering with Rockstar Games on L.A. Noire as it is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated video games in the first half of 2011, said Bob McKenzie, senior vice president of merchandising at GameStop. The robust nature of the exclusive content is exactly what our customers have come to expect from Rockstar Games and GameStop.
The Naked City Vice Case and The Badge Pursuit Challenge
The Naked City is a standalone case from L.A. Noires Vice Desk. In this case, 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 unlocks 20 hidden police badges around the beautifully captured recreation of 1947 Los Angeles 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 five 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. Los Angeles is a massive city, so players will have to search far and wide, covering every corner, parking lot and alleyway in search of the badges.
L.A. Noire will be available May 17, 2011 for $59.99 on Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3. For more information or to pre-order L.A. Noire, visit www.GameStop.com/lanoire.
