Atlus to publish "Game of Thrones" action RPG in early 2012
Standing before the majesty and bitter isolation of the Wall or walking through the streets and alleys of King’s Landing, players will not simply pass by locations and characters integral to the series; they will explore and interact with them, meeting and learning about the people and history that defines them and their importance. Key decisions and major events will have meaningful impact on Westeros, allowing the player to witness how the game world evolves over time based on their actions or inactions. Moreover, “Game of Thrones” introduces an innovative “active slowdown tactical combat engine” in which combat mirrors the series’ thoughtful approach to war and politics: fighting slows but never stops entirely, forcing the player to make quick, pressured choices before their enemy strikes again.
Game of Thrones book series it is based on represent some of the most captivating, original medieval fantasy and drama ever created,” commented Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of Index Digital Media, “Its amalgam of bitterly antagonistic rival houses, deeply nuanced characters, intricate political machinations, and breathtaking fantasy–all set within a richly storied world–offers unparalleled realism and raw emotion. We are honored to work with HBO, Cyanide Studios, and the great George R. R. Martin in bringing an exciting action RPG set in this beloved fantasy universe to fans and gamers in early 2012.”
“This is a wonderful way for fans to engage with the brand in an exciting and interactive way,” stated James Costos, VP of HBO Global Licensing. “ATLUS and Cyanide are leaders in developing world class games with broad accessibility so the partnership was an ideal fit for us.”
“Game of Thrones” is currently scheduled to release in early 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
