RAGE Would Like To Immerse You In Their World

Three of my favorite things are synergizing into one awesome immersion situation: Books, video games, and the apocalypse.

“RAGE” publisher Bethesda Softworks® has teamed up with Del Ray Books and author/game writer Matt Costello to publish a novel, also titled “RAGE”, prior to the scheduled release of the game.

An excerpt from the press release:

The novel delves even deeper into this world and its characters through the pen of Matt Costello–the same person who helped write the story for the game. The world was doomed and only some of the population could be saved. That was what the scientists were saying, at least. So the best and brightest were gathered and put into stasis deep beneath the surface of the Earth–buried so that man could live.

When Lt. Nick Raine emerges from his Ark, he finds the human race has not been wiped out. And people, as resilient as they are, are scraping together a new world from the rubble of the old.  This was not what anyone in the Arks expected–a new society where might is right, mutants plague the Earth, and “friend” is a term for the person who hasn’t stabbed you in the back.

The novel, also entitled “RAGE”, will be written by author and game writer Matt Costello and will release in North America on August 30, 2011. The novel will be published simultaneously in the UK and British Commonwealth by Ebury Publishing, part of the Random House Group.

I’m excited up to eleven about this.

Check out the official Rage website while you wait.
