RAGE novel planned

Bethesda’s revealed that the chaps at Del Rey Books will publish a novel based on the id Software-developed FPS, RAGE.

Penned by famed author and game writer Matt Costello, the eponymous novel is currently pencilled in for release on August 30, 2011.

Bethesda notes that 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."

RAGE will hit PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 on September 15. A three-part comic mini-series from Dark Horse will launch on June 22.
