Rockstar Games has released another batch of screenshots for its upcoming detective game L.A. Noire.

Set for a May 17 release date in the U.S., L.A Noire is a post-war tale of murder, corruption and drugs presented in the style of Hollywood crime dramas like The Big Sleep and The Maltese Falcon

The title is also the first video game to be recognized by the Tribeca Film Festival, where it will be presented. Rockstar Games plans to give an exclusive preview during the festival, which begins later this Month in New York City.

Early previews of the title have gushed over its intricate storytelling, which has also caught the attention of film critics less likely to pay attention to video games. It's an invention of a new realm of storytelling that is part cinema, part gaming, and a whole new realm of narrative expression, interactivity, and immersion, said Tribeca Chief Creative Officer Geoff Gilmore. We are poised on the edge of a new frontier. 

In the new round of shots, players are given their first glimpse of Candy Edwards, a main character in a case titled The Set-Up.
