Tie-in novels really aren't my thing, so I never read Rise of the Horde
, but for those of you that are interested, there's a new Warcraft novel coming out. World of Warcraft: Tides of Darkness
is written by Aaron Rosenberg, who wrote, among other things
, Starcraft: Queen of Blades
. If you couldn't guess by the title, this new book is going to be exploring the events of Warcraft 2
, which was my favorite game by far of the three. Blizzplanet has the full story
on it; it's going to be released in August 2007, and the author will be making an appearance at New York Comic Con if you want to meet him.
Regardless of whether I personally read these novels or not, I do think they're a good thing, in that they delve further into the lore than the games often have a chance to. Lore: it does a body good. What aspect of Blizzard's various universes do you think needs a novel treatment?
