Rhianna Pratchett back to write Overlord II

Codemasters has today announced that Rhianna Pratchett, writer and "narrative designer" for Overlord, Mirror's Edge and Heavenly Sword, will be returning to write the rest of the Overlord series. This includes Overlord II, which was announced for the PS3 in August. This will no doubt please those who enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek yet dark narrative that was present in Overlord or fans of Heavenly Sword's excellent story.

In fact, Overlord's story was so well received that Pratchett has been nominated for a Writers' Guild Award as a result. The awards will be held at BAFTA in London on November 23rd and we wish Rhianna the best of luck, even if we do believe that an award for Heavenly Sword would be more well deserved than for Overlord. Regardless, those of us who are looking forward to Mirror's Edge can rest easy knowing that the story is coming from such a pure writing pedigree.
