We don't know about you, but when we were playing Gears of War a couple years ago, main thought was: "This game is pretty good, but there needs to be more words in it." Now our prayers have been answered with the news of Gears of War novelizations!
Epic Games, Inc. and Del Rey announced today that Del Rey will publish three novels set in the gritty world of the Gears of War. The first title, GEARS OF WAR: THE BATTLE OF ASPHO FIELDS, is by New York Times bestselling author Karen Traviss--veteran of many Star Wars official novels--and comes out October 28th, 2008. Click the cut for the official description of the book:
- In GEARS OF WAR: THE BATTLE OF ASPHO FIELDS, the last human stronghold on Sera braces itself for another onslaught from the Locust Horde, as ghosts come back to haunt Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago. For Marcus — decorated war hero, convicted traitor — the return of an old comrade threatens to dredge up an agonizing secret he's sworn to keep. As the beleaguered soldiers of the Coalition of Ordered Governments take a last stand to save humankind from extermination, the harrowing decisions made at Aspho Fields have to be relived and made again. Marcus and Dom can take anything the Locust Horde throws at them — but will their friendship survive the truth about Dom’s brother Carlos? It comes out October 28, 2008
