New Dragon Age novel in late 2011

Dragon Age fans waiting for the third installment in the RPG series will soon have something to occupy a bit of their time with.

Tor Books has announced Dragon Age: Asunder, the third Dragon Age novel from BioWare lead writer David Gaider, the previous two being Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne and Dragon Age: The Calling, both 2009 releases.

Gaider is also the pen behind both games.

As for what to expect from Asunder: “A mystical killer stalks the halls of the White Spire, the heart of templar power in the mighty Orlesian Empire. To prove his innocence, Adrian reluctantly embarks on a journey into the western wastelands that will not only reveal much more than he bargained for but change the fate of his fellow mages forever.”

There’s no precise date for the novel just yet, but expect “late 2011.”
