God Of War Novel Hits In Two Weeks
God of War may be the most critically revered franchise in the history of gaming, which is why it probably warrants a book...well, maybe.
The official God of War novel has been announced and you can even read the entire first chapter online. Head over to the official site for the details; the book will be available to buy on May 25, so if you like what you see in that first chapter, feel free to pick it up. Author Robert E. Vardeman will pop into the forums in a few weeks to answer some fan questions about the book, too, and you can also chat about that first chapter if you so desire. The question is whether or not the fans will respond; reading a book is a bit different than playing a game, especially when it's a game like God of War. Perhaps an RPG is more suited to the literary transition in question but hey, didn't those Halo books do well enough? Besides, for game collectors, they may need to have the GoW novel "just because." We'll also be wondering if more popular video games will become books in the future; it doesn't appear to be a logical leap but there are some intelligent gamers out there, right?
Eh, maybe I'm only interested because gamers who read have really become an interest to me as of late. Some of you know of what I speak but there will be no talking about it, yes? ;) Just stay tuned...
