Bethesda has announced it will be releasing two novels based on its highly successful Elder Scrolls franchise later this year.

Both works are being penned by New York Times’ Greg Keyes, the first of which coming in the form of The Infernal City, due out this autumn.

Set after the events of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, the novel centres on a mysterious floating city that casts a malevolent shadow over the land of Tamriel, transforming anyone caught in its path into the undead. Enter a teenaged girl named Annaig, who teams up with the Emperor’s son, Prince Attrebus, to subvert the evil doings and restore peace to the kingdom.

Bethesda’s Pete Hines commented: We've been big fans of Greg's work for a long time, and we're thrilled he agreed to bring his talents to The Elder Scrolls," adding, We see these books as a natural extension of the franchise and think fans will love the stories and characters Greg has created."

Details on the second novel have yet to be revealed.
