Have you all downloaded and played through the new LA Noire case ‘Reefer Madness’? If so then I hope you enjoyed it, you may find it could be your final foray into 40’s Los Angeles.
A minor storm of excitement was created a couple of days ago when website Kotaku contacted Rockstar to inquire whether we would be seeing more downloadable cases in the future. Rockstar responded by saying ‘The game isn’t complete yet’. Of course this sparked much discussion of a possible release of the whole Burglary desk that was cut from the game as well as a frankly ludicrous suggestion of ‘Noire Zombies.’ Although it would admittedly look pretty cool, never was a game less suited to a Zombie invasion than one where investigation and interrogation form the bulk of the gameplay.
Regrettably however the reality is rather more disappointing. In response to excited fan mumblings on the games official website, Rockstar commented that ‘all that statement is referring to is the Consul’s Car case which we hope to be bringing to more of you soon. Stay tuned!’ The case in question was released as part of the main storyline solely for PS3 owners in North America, so although it will be new for 360 owners and gamers outside of the United States, it certainly isn’t that DLC that many were hoping for.
A ray of hope on the horizon for fans of three-piece suits and hopheads could be the PC version however. Currently being worked on, the port is promised to have improved graphics and at the very least the DLC incorporated into the title in a ‘directors cut’ edition. Whether that will prompt more downloadable cases in the future is anyone’s guess, but please no more talk of zombies. At least until tomorrow.
