Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones, the books, the HBO TV series now the video game, all come with creative input from the originator of the lore, George R.R. Martin. The new game from Focus Home Interactive and developer Cyanide comes with that input and also with a brand new story.
Using the action role-playing format, Game of Thrones has a rich, fantasy environment but the same Iron Throne so familiar to lovers of both the books and the television. Yes, despite the new story, that mighty Iron Throne must be fought and schemed for.
The gamer takes on the role of one of two characters including: Mors, Sworn Brother of the Night’s Watch, or Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption, as they make their ways around familiar locations in Westeros. Gamers get the chance to visit The Wall and also to survive the politics down in the hotbed that is King’s Landing.
Non-playing characters take the forms of well-known faces from the lore including: Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider and Jeor Mormont, Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.
The game enables players to have full control of their character’s development. This includes selecting their character’s class, finding their fighting style and developing the crucial balance between the character's strengths and weaknesses. Once the character is formed they must fight in epic battles. In order to do all this, the gamer must must also find, buy or loot new equipment and weapons to suit their character's fighting style. They must also and gain experience to improve their various abilities.
In order to survive and achieve the throne, however, the gamer must do more than fight, as political skills and the power of a silver tongue will also help.
