Why this piqued our interest.
When Rucka turns his eye to a project we can not help but take notice. If you have not yet read Lazarus you may not quite get why but as this series is not out till December it will give you plenty of time to find out why. So go buy Lazarus.
The fact this series will be meshed into the Dragon Age story is also something that has us excited.
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.
