With anything Rockstar Games does, you are guaranteed one thing for sure; you get what you paid for.
The marketing campaign has been in full swing and the developer plans to keep it that way even after the release of the game.
Rockstar has launched an official soundtrack page for L.A. Noire, outlining the making of the musical score as well as listing the original and licensed tracks heard in-game.
On the same page, you can check out the L.A. Noire Verve Remixed Project EP, which sees mix masters such as Dave Site (TV on the Radio), DJ Premier (Gang Starr) and Truth and Soul (El Michels Affair) giving a new spin on classics by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Lionel Hampton.
Both the OST and Verve Remixed Project EP will release alongside the game, through digital distributors.
In the meantime, to feed your craving for old time policing, Rockstar has commissioned a series of short fiction pieces inspired by L.A. Noire.
The first to be released, entitled “See The Woman”, comes from award-winning suspense writer Lawrence Block and is available to read online at Mulholland Books.
The story will also see the light of day in PDF and e-Reader formats, and will be joined by further releases over the rest of the week.
L.A. Noire is to be released tomorrow (May 17) in the North America and May 20 in Europe.
