Watch out Skyrim—another snow-covered fantasy adventure game is coming to claim your throne.
Set for release next year, Game of Thrones is a new RPG based around the first chapter of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels. Today, a new trailer has come out to get you excited for Cyanide Studio’s efforts.
It depicts rather large amounts of aggravated grimacing, dramatic pacing, and a couple short gameplay sections that consist of… running. Characters move with a stiffness that makes mecha-Godzilla look like regular Godzilla, but there’s potential here. The world looks decently realized – if a bit low-fi. It’s not the most blood-drenched, battle-worn thing I’ve ever seen, but then, Game of Thrones isn’t exactly fight, fight, fight all the time. Color me cautiously non-pessimistic. Or maybe in denial. Check out the trailer and judge for yourself.
