SDCC 2015: GREG RUCKA TO CRAFT ‘DRAGON AGE: MAGEKILLER’ IN DECEMBER
ACCLAIMED WRITER BRINGS A NEW, ORIGINAL ‘DRAGON AGE’ STORY TO DARK HORSE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—This December, Greg Rucka enters the world of Thedas for an all-new chapter in Dark Horse Comics and BioWare’s Dragon Age comics.
Running parallel to the events of the award-winning Dragon Age: Inquisition video game from BioWare and Electronic Arts, Dragon Age: Magekiller introduces two new characters to Dragon Age lore: Tessa and Marius are mercenary partners, eliminating those who use blood magic to hurt others, but when a powerful patron employs them, they realize this next job may be their last…
“I think the effort that Bioware has consistently put into every on of their roleplaying games—we can talk about Mass Effect, we can talk about Dragon Age, we can talk about Jade Empire, you can go down the list—is really stunning,” Rucka told Polygon. “I know with Dragon Age in particular, we’re talking about a fantasy setting that is probably one of the most fully and beautifully realized examples of world building that we’ve seen.”
Illustrated by Carmen Carnero (Cyclops) with covers by Sachin Teng, Dragon Age: Magekiller is the beginning of a new adventure in the world of Thedas and an essential addition to the Dragon Age canon. For more information, check out Polygon’s exclusive interview with Greg Rucka.
