Tor Books—the largest publisher of science fiction in the world—and BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts, are excited to announce the third novel in the award-winning Dragon Age fantasy RPG franchise. David Gaider, lead writer at BioWare and author of two previous Dragon Age novels, will pen Dragon Age: Asunder for late 2011 publication.
The team at BioWare, responsible for such beloved classics as Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Mass Effect, set a new Fantasy RPG storytelling standard with the Dragon Age franchise, which has won over 35 awards between the release of Dragon Age: Origins in 2009 and Dragon Age II in March 2011.
David Gaider’s previous two Dragon Age novels, Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne (March 2009) and Dragon Age: The Calling (October 2009) were well-received by fans and did much to establish the dark, heroic nature and epic scale of the Dragon Age universe. Dragon Age: Asunder builds directly on the story from the second game, expanding and illuminating new corners of the world Thedas.
A mystical killer stalks the halls of the White Spire, the heart of templar power in the mighty Orlesian Empire. To prove his innocence, Rhys reluctantly embarks on a journey into the western wastelands that will not only reveal much more than he bargained for but change the fate of his fellow mages forever.
Fans of BioWare are invited to visit the official Dragon Age website, where they can preview and find additional information about Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne, Dragon Age: The Calling, and more. Keep an eye out for an interview with the author, David Gaider, himself on Bioware TV Pulse!
