Following its well-received comic book adaptations, Stephen King's beloved The Dark Tower book series is expanding further to another new media form -- video games. According to a video posted on the author's site, a new project titled Discordia will debut on November 30th.

Those expecting an action title that has Roland firing away at Mutant lobsters or an RPG taking your Ka-tet across All-World will likely be disappointed, as the project looks like an online interactive game (my guess) centered around the Tet Corporation's secret war with North Central Positronics and Sombra Corporation, both companies under control by Insomnia/The Dark Tower villain Crimson King.

The game also focuses on a new character, NCP's CEO Arina Yokova, a Russian national with mob ties and the leader of the Crimson Crescent. While the posted trailer doesn't indicate whether the books' heroes -- Roland, Susannah, Eddie, and Jake (and Oy!) -- will act as playable characters in the game, their portraits appear briefly in the clip.

Whatever releases this November, it will probably be the first in a series, as suggested by the "Chapter One (For Callahan!)" note toward the end of the trailer. Callahan, for those familiar with King's books, refers to Father Callahan, the troubled priest in 'Salem's Lot who later reappears The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla.

Robin Furth, King's personal research assistant and the author of The Dark Tower: A Complete Concordance, is listed as director for the game, which is promising considering she also worked on the comic book adaptations with Peter David. Metro DMA is handling Discordia's production.
