Take note, fantasy junkies; publisher Little Orbit plans to put out an RPG that will serve as a prequel to Brandon Sanderson’s best-selling Mistborn series, set several hundred years before the first Mistborn novel. Mistborn: Birthright will even include an original storyline penned by Sanderson himself.
This is not Sanderson’s first foray into video games; he recently finished work on Infinity Blade II and an accompanying novella called Infinity Blade: Awakening.
The upcoming RPG is due out in 2013, and will be available on the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac. The gameplay will feature a unique combat system that includes “Allomancy”, an ability familiar to fans of the series that involves using metals to enhance the physical and mental capabilities of the user.
