Friday Update: New Drew Karpyshyn Novel Revealed: Revan

This week’s Friday Update may not at first seem directly related to the game. But if the title of Revan doesn’t catch you, then reading a little closer reveals this:

Now the name of that novel can be revealed: Revan. As well as exploring what happened to Revan after Knights of the Old Republic, in this novel readers will learn who the Sith Emperor is in the time of the Old Republic, where they came from and how they have held onto power for so long.

It was revealed a while back that Drew Karpyshyn would be penning a new novel set in the Old Republic, but details were scarce. Drew was set to reveal the title to his book on his own blog, however it looks like SWTOR.com got the scoop!

There is an extensive Q&A with Drew that is a must read:

Q: In what ways will readers who have read Revan benefit when playing Star Wars: The Old Republic?

A: I think the novel will give them a much better understanding of the Sith Emperor and the Empire, for one thing. The Old Republic Sith Empire is very different from what people know from the movies, or even from the Great Hyperspace War comics that focus on characters like Naga Sadow and Ludo Kressh.

Considering this book ties into events of the game, there could be more hidden between the lines than we think :) This sounds like a must-read for fans of The Old Republic, as well as the KoTOR series!

Head on over for the full read!
