VIDEO GAME NEWS: Game of Thrones - Cynaide, Koch

Hail Mighty Readers and those of the Calloused Thumbs,
Our friends at Koch Media and Cynaide have let us know about the forthcoming Game of Thrones Game available for all Consoles and PC's. Here's what they've had to say:

"Offering a brand new story developed with creative input from Martin himself, Game of Thrones is a stunning action role-playing game that throws fans into a rich, fantasy environment as they engage in a heart-pounding quest for the famous Iron Throne.

Playing as either Mors, Sworn Brother of the Night’s Watch, or Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption, players can expect to visit familiar locations from Westeros, such as The Wall and the famous King’s Landing, while well-known faces you’ll encounter include Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider and Jeor Mormont, Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.

In Game of Thrones, players have full control of their character’s development; choose your character’s class, find your fighting style, develop a balance between your strengths and weaknesses, and take part in epic battles. Find, buy or loot new equipment and weapons to fit your fighting style, and gain experience to improve your abilities. Likewise, political skills can be every bit as lethal as a sharpened sword, so never underestimate the power of a silver tongue when it comes to solving a critical situation!

● An epic Action/RPG offering an original story based on the best-selling novels, “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin
● Lush, fantasy visuals powered by Unreal Engine 3.
● Visit familiar places and meet well-known characters, faithfully reproduced from the TV series
● Play the game from the viewpoint of two different charismatic characters, each with their own background and skills
● Progress the way you choose: get involved in epic fights, or try to solve explosive situations through dialogue!"

Game of Thrones will be released this Summer so stay tuned for updates.

I guess, with the success of the books and the series, the video game was inevitable. Let's hope it doesn't suck, and does the depth of the setting justice.

I've reading A Game of Thrones now and if I were into games I'd be all over this one. Very awesome for the author that there is such an intense interest in his series!
