A Look at Cyanide’s Game of Thrones

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jan 10, 2012 in Videogames |

To be fair, I’m not sure what to think of Cyanide Studio’s upcoming Game of Thrones RPG. Seeing as A Song of Fire and Ice is a bit of a hot commodity right now, we would expect the license to land in the hands of an experienced developer. However, that didn’t happen. Instead, in what I can only imagine was a stroke of luck on their part, Cynaide Studios will be delivering several games based on the popular series, the first of which will be a third-person roleplaying adventure. Entitled simply Game of Thrones, the plot follows two survivors of Robert’s Rebellion as their decisions lead them on separate paths throughout the land, only to once again unite them against common enemies in an attempt to save the kingdom.

This trailer reveals some familiar characters and locations, many of which resemble the actors and sets as they were depicted in the recent HBO series. George R.R. Martin supposedly supervised the writing as well, so at least that much should be good. The visuals, if the trailer is any indication, could use more than a bit of polish. I’m not expecting every fantasy title to look like Skyrim, but it wouldn’t hurt to try. Then again, this could be early footage for all we know. For more information about the game in the coming months, check out the official website here.
