VIDEO GAME NEWS: Game of Thrones Developer Video - Cyanide and Koch Media

Hail Mighty Readers and Followers of the Calloused Thumbs,
Our friends at Koch Media and Cyanide, have let us know about thier new development V-Blog that went live earlier today that lets you know a little more about the game.

Already Lady Eleanor is sharpening her skills and preparing to slaughter her way across the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros so that she can soak the earth with the blood of her enemies.  As to me, well I'm taking the diplomatic road (and yes, Lady Eleanor is getting to play first, hence why I've decided that diplomacy is the better road.  LOL)

Game of Thrones will be available in June and when we get a precise date we'll let you know.

The game, according to the press release will be :
"Offering a brand new story developed with creative input from George R.R, 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 Mors, Sworn Brother of the Night’s Watch, and 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!"

All the best and keep those thumbs and fingers dexterous.
