Fans of the Elder Scrolls series are in luck: Random House, Inc. has made the first few pages of the upcoming Elder Scrolls novel, The Infernal City available online. Written by Greg Keyes, author of the sci-fi series Age of Unreason as well as several Star Wars and Babylon 5 novels, this new book will give those hungry for Elder Scrolls V (myself included) something to gnaw on for a while.

As a fan of the Elder Scrolls series, and a self-claimed Morrowind purist, the announcement of this book made me simultaneously excited and apprehensive. With the games themselves being very literary (the in-game texts have pages numbering in the thousands), an actual book seemed like a logical step, but this also brings up issues of lore accuracy and general fantasy novel cheese.

From what’s in the preview, The Infernal City seems to assume a certain level of knowledge about The Elder Scrolls universe, which is a good sign after the hand-holdy feeling of Oblivion.

This tiny taste of The Infernal City has done a little to ease my pre-publishing dread, but it’s something. The book comes out November 24.

Have you finished Point Lookout yet? Well, you’d better get on it, because Fallout 3‘s latest downloadable adventure, Mothership Zeta is almost here.

The DLC is supposedly the last in the series of 5, and we’re sad to see it go. But don’t worry, there’s still a lot more alien-blasting and anal probing to go around.

If the new trailer is anything to go on, Mothership Zeta promises a bunch of  new weapons – including a freeze ray, which, in my opinion, is of the highest quality of rays.

See the full trailer after the break.
