This morning I nearly missed saying hello to Skyrim’s senior brand manager, Erin Losi, as she was eclipsed by the massive Skyrim Collector’s Edition box at her desk. The box is HUGE – a virtual planetoid that should have its own weather system.
It’s also extremely limited – so don’t forget to pre-order.
We’re still two weeks weeks from the release of Lonesome Road. To get you ready, each week we’ll be releasing a new holotape.
To set the stage, here’s Lonesome Road’s project director, Mr. Chris Avellone…
Lonesome Road brings the DLC story arc to a close – events that were first hinted at in New Vegas and Dead Money come to pass, as the last of the DLC cast of characters, Ulysses, reveals himself. For a time, we just introduced him through the perspectives of other characters, a description of another Courier who wore an Old World flag on his back, and in Old World Blues, a mysterious figure who marked his presence through graffiti and holotapes left in the Big Empty.
But those holotapes weren’t the only recordings. Ulysses carried more on his journey back to the Divide, and used them to chronicle his past and yours. As your Courier will discover in Lonesome Road, these recordings of Ulysses are buried in the wreckage and storms of the Divide. As you walk the road, you’ll have a chance to hear the history of the courier who has spent years hunting you down.
This is the first of a series of holotapes your Courier may find in the Divide. While we, as developers only knew a few things for certain about your player character’s history, Ulysses can shed more light on past events – and events to come.
The official RAGE novel, written by author and game writer Matt Costello, has now hit stores!
In RAGE, the asteroid Apophis has annihilated Earth, and only a small percentage of humanity’s best and brightest have been saved. Buried deep below the ground in life-sustaining Arks, these chosen few are tasked with one vital mission—to restore civilization to a devastated planet hundreds of years after the impact. The novel centers around Lieutenant Nick Raine, an Ark survivor that emerges into the apocalyptic world of RAGE to confront a would-be tyrant.
