Roman zur Spiele-Serie erweitert das Darksiders-Universum

Random House Worlds arbeitet zudem an der Darksiders-Enzyklopädie

(PresseBox) (Krefeld, ) THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) und die Random House Publishing Group kündigen heute die Veröffentlichung eines Romans zum Darksiders®-Universum an. Das Buch wird im Mai 2012 vom Del-Rey-Verlag veröffentlicht. DARKSIDERS: THE ABOMINATION VAULT stammt aus der Feder des Autors Ari Marmell. Die Geschichte spielt einige Jahrtausende vor den Geschehnissen des ersten Darksiders-Videospiels. Random House Worlds, die Kreativ- und Entwicklungsabteilung im Lizenzbereich der Random House Publishing Group, arbeitet zudem an einer verbindlichen Enzyklopädie über das Darksiders-Universum.

In DARKSIDERS: THE ABOMINATION VAULT decken die Reiter der Apokalypse (Wesen, die das Gleichgewicht zwischen den Mächten des Himmels und denen der Hölle bewahren sollen) eine Verschwörung auf, in der uralte Waffen mit unvorstellbarer Kraft reaktiviert werden sollen. Tod versucht gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder Krieg die geheimnisvollen Drahtzieher hinter der Verschwörung aufzuspüren und auszuschalten, bevor das gesamte Universum in einen verheerenden Konflikt verwickelt wird.

Über Darksiders II:

Gerufen durch das Ende aller Tage, macht sich Tod, der gefürchtetste der legendären vier Reiter der Apokalypse, auf den Weg, um das Armageddon rückgängig zu machen. Auf seiner Reise entdeckt Tod, dass neben der Apokalypse auf der Erde noch deutlich schlimmere Dinge vor sich gehen. Ein uralter Fluch bedroht das gesamte Universum. In Darksiders II werden Sie zur Schrecken erregenden Macht, die jeder fürchtet, der aber niemand entkommen kann. Tod lebt.

About the Random House Publishing Group

The flagship imprint of Random House, Inc., the Random House Publishing Group had its origins in 1925 when Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer, two New Yorkers in their mid-twenties, acquired a line of classics and contemporary American works called The Modern Library from publisher Horace Liveright. The company assumed the name Random House two years later, in 1927, when Cerf and Klopfer decided to publish a few books on the side, "at random." Their artist friend Rockwell Kent drew his now celebrated logo of a random house, which made its debut in February l927. Among the first titles of the new imprint were limited editions illustrated by Kent of Voltaire's Candide and Melville's Moby Dick.

Del Rey Books (http://www.delreybooks.com) was founded in 1977 as an imprint of Ballantine Books, a division of the Random House Publishing Group, under the guidance of the renowned Judy-Lynn del Rey and her husband, Lester del Rey. Del Rey publishes the best of modern fantasy, science fiction, and alternate history.

Random House Worlds, part of the Random House Publishing Group, is responsible for the creation of original multi-platform intellectual properties (IP), developed and marketed within strategic corporate partnerships. The group also works with authors and partners on story creation, world-building and launch strategies for existing IP.
