Despite Drew Karpyshyn recently announcing his departure from BioWare, the author of Revan continues to work on a new novel set during the era of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Up until now, not much had been known about the book. Thanks to a post on the DelRay Facebook page, some interesting tidbits have been revealed. The title of the book is Annihilation. It will feature several well-known SWTOR characters and delve deeper into the war between the Republic and the Sith Empire.
Quote from DelRayFirst, DARTH BANE and REVAN author Drew Karpyshyn is cranking away on his next novel, STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC: ANNIHILATION. Republic agent Theron Shan and his Twi’lek compadre, Teff’ith (from Dark Horse Comics’ STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC: THE LOST SUNS) must contend with a Sith Empire counter-attack against the Republic, spearheaded by the lethal apprentice of Darth Malgus. Satele Shan and Jace Malcolm co-star in what will be a fast-paced and tension-fraught tale based on the award-winning video game from BioWare and LucasArts.
Star Wars: The Old Republic: Annihilation hits store shelves on November 13. Look for coverage of the book here as we get closer to its release.
