THE BUZZ: Game of Thrones, the book series (The Song of Ice and Fire) that became a hit HBO show, that turned into a game finally has a release date. Developer Cyanide has announced its role playing game will make its debut May 15 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. We know the Cyanide is looking to expand the world of Westeros beyond the novels and show, but little is known of the game’s main plot. We do know you will get to visit The Wall in the north, and become a Brother of the Nights Watch, so that already peaks our interest.
EGM’s TAKE: While Cyanide is familiar with George R.R. Martin ‘s world, having created the strategy game Game of Thrones: Genesis back in September, the premise to the game doesn’t seem to go too deeply into the characters the series is known for. Will unexpecting fans enjoy seeing Westeros from a different perspective? We’ll find out May 15.
