Eragon the game First Look



Based on the debut novel by Christopher Paolini, Eragon is a fantasy adventure set in the land of Alagaesia, which was protected by powerful dragon riders for thousands of years until one of them (theres always one) turns to the dark side and convinces others to join him, proclaiming himself king in the process.

It's up to you, a young farmboy who discovers a dragons egg, to dethrone him. Yes you guessed right it's also a movie, directed by Steven Fangmeier (one of the top 100 people to know in Hollywood it seems, which will be handy if I ever descide to backpack) and starring amongst others Jeremy Irons and Sienna Guillory.

Both game and movie are set for a December release.
