Gamers ready to close the file on L.A. Noire may want to think again. Today, Rockstar Games announced a host of add-on content for the post-World War II crime drama, with the first set of bonus cases arriving for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 today.

The opening salvo of DLC includes two new cases, four in-game items, and a challenge. The two new cases are titled "The Naked City" and "A Slip of the Tongue," and fall within the vice desk and traffic desk, respectively. These cases can be bought individually for $4 (320 Microsoft points).

Imagine that. More crime in L.A.

As for in-game items, gamers can pick up the Broderick detective suit and gun as well as the sharpshooter detective suit and gun today for $1 (80 MSP) each. Rockstar is also giving away the Chicago piano machine gun to all, while the Chicago Lightning detective suit is free to those who belong to the Rockstar Social Club (a free registration through Rockstar's website). Lastly, The Badge Pursuit Challenge can be had for $2 (160 MSP).

Beyond the DLC arriving today, Rockstar is prepping two more bonus cases for L.A. Noire. The "Nicholson Electroplating" arson case will arrive on June 21, while the "Reefer Madness" vice case is scheduled for July 12. These bonus cases will also cost $4 (320 MSP) each. Rockstar noted that it does not plan to release additional DLC beyond "Reefer Madness."

Though all items can be bought individually, those interested in the lot can purchase the Rockstar Pass, which grants access to all seven pieces of premium content for $10--a 50 percent savings. The $10 price tag will only hold for a limited time, Rockstar noted, before raising to $12 at an unspecified date.
