250 years is a long time to wait between video game launches. So to inform fans of the Guild Wars franchise on the marriages, new races, unexpected alliances and dark forces that haunt Tyria, NCsoft and ArenaNet are releasing Ghosts of Ascalon, the first novel in the Guild Wars book series written by Matt Forbeck and Jeff Grubb. Ghosts of Ascalon takes place a year before the start of Guild Wars 2, and deals with, among other things, the tentative truce between man and charr.
While official sales begin in Europe on July 27, eager fans can learn more about the novel on the official Ghosts of Ascalon page. The page features an excerpt from the novel and information on the In-Book Map Graphic. Additionally, the website will link to Jeff Grubb’s blog post detailing the process of writing Ghosts of Ascalon. Further information, including the exact release dates for Germany, France, Italy and Russia can be located in the Ghosts of Ascalon FAQ.
