Preordering LA Noire at GameStop in North America will entitle you to receive two exclusive items of downloadable content, the retailer and Rockstar have announced. You'll be able to get your mitts on an entire bonus case from LA Noire's Vice desk as well as an exclusive extra challenge with a preorder from GameStop.

"We are particularly excited to be partnering with Rockstar Games on LA 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."

Entitled 'The Naked City, the exclusive preorder case has Cole Phelps investigating the apparent suicide of a beautiful fashion model, as part of the overarching narrative in which the death of a woman is not all that it seems. Phelps will have to unravel the truth and get to the heart of the case.

The second preorder DLC item is the 'Badge Pursuit Challenge', which tasks Phelps with collecting 20 police badges hidden around the game's rendition of 1947 Los Angeles. Upon finding and grabbing all 20, you'll unlock the 'Button Man suit', which adds extra ammo for every weapon. Each badge also provides additional XP to help him rank up.

LA Noire is out on May 17th in North America and is available to preorder from GameStop for $59.99. Keep an eye out for more LA Noire on the site soon!

I'm not a fan of these pre-order bonuses. I prefer normal limited editions with all the extras there are.

They annouced the pre-order bonuses for the UK already on their website. (which I can't access at work so can't copy them out)
You get a different bonus if you buy at Play/Gamestop/Zavvi and GAME.

I would love to have both bonus cases & the 2 suits. But obviously I will have to pick only one. This is such crap and the worst part about it is that none of these "pre-order bonuses" will appear on the Xbox Live Marketplace/PSN Store later on for purchase.

None of the 3 pre-order bonuses for Red Dead Redemption ever appeared for purchase & the Solomon's Folly Hideout & Walton Gang Outfit remained a PS3 exclusive never going to the XBLM.

Been excited for this game for a long long time now, so more content just means the better to me.
