L.A. Noire preorder bonuses announced!

LA Noire

Rockstar has today announced the details regarding the pre-order bonuses for their new title, L.A. Noire.
The developers behind the Grand Theft Auto series and Red Dead Redemption are returning to uphold their title of best sandbox developer with L.A. Noire which sets out to be a unique crime thriller set in Hollywood’s golden age.

The preorder exclusive content for L.A. Noire includes “crime cases, challenges, detective outfits with unique gameplay abilities and more.”

Preordering from GAME (or Gamestop in the US/Canada) will get players “The Naked City” vice case and “Badge Pursuit” challenge:

The naked city

“‘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.”

Players preordering from Amazon will receive “The Broderick” detective suit for use in-game:

The Broderick

“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.”

If you’d rather preorder from play.com (or Walmart for the US and Canada) you’ll receive a bonus case from the traffic desk called “A slip of the tongue” :

A slip of the tongue

““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?”

Preorder buyers from Zavvi (or Best Buy in the US and Canada) will earn “The Sharpshooter” detective suit for use in game:

The Sharpshooter

“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.”

Players in North America ordering from the Rockstar Warehouse will get an official, high quality, all cotton L.A. Noire t-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.

The release date for L.A. Noire is May 17th in North America and May 20th for Europe.
