Game of Thrones RPG Trailer, Details Finally Out
We’ve heard lots of rumors, but very little concrete information about the Game of Thrones RPG until today. Cyanide studios released some choice tidbits of information along with a new trailer showing the game in action.
Game of Thrones, the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 RPG due out early 2012, is being built by Cyanide Studio using Epic's Unreal Engine 3, publisher Focus Home Interactive has revealed.
It's based on the series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin - the inspiration behind the HBO TV series. The game's story is written "under the supervision" of R.R. Martin.
You play as Mors, sworn brother of the Night's Watch, and Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption. The pair adventure in familiar parts of Westeros, such as the Wall and King's Landing. You get to meet Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider and Jeor Mormont, the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Expect 30 hours of gameplay.
At the beginning of the game you choose the class of your characters and determine their fighting style. As with all good RPGs there's equipment to loot, weapons to find and experience to gain. You can slow down time during combat.
It was hardly the trailer we were hoping for, but it’ll do for now. It’s over two minutes long, but includes next to no gameplay footage. And the footage that does come from in-game play is just a character running in a perfectly straight line in a few different settings. For a game that’s due out in “early 2012” that’s a bit concerning.
