$10 'Rockstar Pass' coming to L.A. Noire May 17
Team Bondi's detective thriller getting add-on that takes "experience to the next level"; unclear as to what it will offer.
Publishers Electronic Arts, THQ, and possibly Sony have already made their cases against used-game sales by charging secondhand gamers $10 for access to everything in their games. And now, it appears Rockstar Games is also entering the contingency next week with its 1940's detective thriller.
According to an Xbox Live release schedule issued by the publisher, next Tuesday, May 17, Rockstar Games will release an 800 Microsoft point ($10) "L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass" on Xbox Live alongside L.A. Noire.
The description of the content notes that gamers who purchase the content will be able to take the "L.A. Noire experience to the next level." Unfortunately, further information on the matter was not available. However, a Rockstar representative told GameSpot, "We'll have more information to share about [the Rockstar Pass] pretty soon."
It is unclear as to what Rockstar's Pass will offer. However, one possibility is that it will provide access to the various retailer-specific preorder content, which has been confirmed as becoming available at some point after the game is release.
L.A. Noire is due out on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 17. The title follows Detective Phelps as he becomes entangled in a violent web of vice, corruption, and crime in 1940's Los Angeles. Players jump into the seedy underworld of the metropolis and are tasked with solving a series of murders in what Rockstar describes as an "open-ended challenge."
