Rockstar publishes LA Noire e-book giveaway

A novel gesture

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Rockstar is rather good at stories. Those of you who have played through LA Noire, will probably agree. Now the celebrated games publisher has moved into the realm of e-books, with a free LA Noire-themed short story anthology up for grabs.

LA Noire: The Collected Stories - a gathering of eight tales from various well-known authors - is based around the crime-riddled world of LA Noire. Many of the stories revisit characters from the game itself and provide new spins on controversial headlines from the 1940s.

While several of the stories have been previously published on Rockstar's official LA Noire webpage, three additional exclusives are included.

LA Noire: The Collected Stories

To celebrate release, Rockstar is offering LA Noire: The Collected Stories as a free download at all Amazon, iTunes and Barnes and Noble eBook stores. Be quick, though. From June 12, the download is set to cost a dollar, or 61p for those of us on this side of the Atlantic. ®
