Mulholland Books to Publish L.A. Noire Game Tie-In Anthology

L. A. Noire: The Collected Stories

We've been following the development of the video game L.A. Noire, what some are calling the first interactive crime drama, a game that seamlessly blends crime-solving, clue-finding, car chases and shoot-outs with revolutionary new interrogation-based gameplay that will allow players to read characters' emotions in order to reveal the truth.

Now we're learning that Mulholland Books, the crime imprint of Little, Brown, is publishing an ebook tie-in called L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories, an anthology featuring stories by Megan Abbott, Lawrence Block, Joe Lansdale, Joyce Carol Oates, Francine Prose, Jonathan Santlofer, Duane Swierczynski and Andrew Vachss.

1940s Hollywood, murder, deception and mystery take center stage as readers reintroduce themselves to characters seen in L.A. Noire. Readers will come across not only familiar faces, but familiar cases from the game that take on a new spin to tell the tales of emotionally torn protagonists, depraved schemers and their ill-fated victims.

L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories is expected to be available on June 6th, 2011. Links to purchase the book are not yet available, but we'll post them as soon as they are. The game itself is scheduled for release on May 17th, 2011, exclusively for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Watch the latest trailer for the game below.
