Preview The Naked City in LA Noire

March 3, 2011Written by Tyler Minarik

Rockstar and Team Bondi’s unique detective thriller, LA Noire, isn’t even out until late May, but the developer has already started talking about downloadable content. Pre-ordering the game at select retailers will give gamers an extra mission called “The Naked City”, which has been trailered below.

This new teaser video shows brief cuts from the upcoming murder mystery game, vaguely depicting an investigation of an apparent suicide. A girl named Julie is dead, and although it appears she has killed herself, not everyone around her is so convinced. It seems foul play may be afoot, and it is up to the player to discover the truth. If you want a crack at solving the case later this year, you’ll need to pre-order LA Noire from GAME, the UK video game retailer.

LA Noire looks as intense as ever, and an extra mission to extend the length of the game seems like a welcome pre-order bonus. Hopefully there will be another way to experience this portion of the title for those of us who can’t order from GAME, and we’ll let you know when we find it. LA Noire releases May 17 in North America and May 20 in Europe, leaving a little over two months left to secure your copy.
