George R.R. Martin's epic fantasy saga becomes a new epic fantasy RPG. Do you dare to play Game of Thrones?
Based on the best-selling series of A Song of Ice and Fire novels and featuring a new story devised by Martin himself, Game of Thrones on PC will allow fans of books, the TV series, and fantasy role-playing games to become immersed in the world of Westeros, Winterfell and more. This action RPG boasts all the vengeance, allegiance, betrayal and honour fans have come to expect from the series as players engage in a heart-pounding quest for the famous Iron Throne.
Playing as either Mors, Sworn Brother of the Night’s Watch, or Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption, you can visit familiar locations such as The Wall and the famous King’s Landing, while well-known faces you’ll encounter include Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider and Jeor Mormont, Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.
In Game of Thrones, you have full control of your character and their development; choose your class, find your fighting style, balance your strengths and weaknesses, and take part in epic battles. Find, buy or loot new equipment and weapons to fit your fighting style, and gain experience to improve your abilities. And in-keeping with the books and TV show, political skills are just as lethal as a sharpened sword - never underestimate the power of a silver tongue when it comes to solving a critical situation!

A grand storyline, intriguing characters and thrilling fighting, all set in an epic fantasy world? Sounds like the ingredients for the perfect videogame to us. Enter then the TV & book Goliath that is Game of Thrones, now available on your Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC...
Take a series of best-selling books in the epic form of A Song of Ice and Fire. Then create a hit TV show from it in the shape of HBO's Game of Thrones. So where next? Blockbuster videogames of course! And now the epic and bloody tale of seven families doing all manner of nasties to each other in the name of power is unleashed in this third-person RPG.
Fans will find themselves choosing to fill the boots of either Mors, Sworn Brother of the Night's Watch, or Alester, a redemption-seeking Red Priest. If you're scratching your head wondering when these two ever turned up in the books, there's no need; they are brand-spanking new characters whose stories run parallel with the original violent, political, sexual (and potty-mouthed) plot that we all know and love from the books and TV series - plus the video game's story was written in conjunction with author George R.R. Martin himself, so it's the real deal, folks.
Best of all, you'll find yourself coming face to face with such stalwarts as Queen Cersei and Varys the Spider, and traversing familiar locations like King's Landing and The Wall; but now you're the one swinging the sword thanks to an in-depth combat system that allows gamers to slow down the action and queue up devastating attacks. For the more Machiavellian among you, there's also a dialogue system that lets you talk your way out of trouble instead, and form alliances and betray friendships; the ramifications of which can impact on the game's story.
Technically, Game Of Thrones might not be the sharpest sword in the blacksmith's, but as an RPG that brings the books and series alive on your console or PC, it's in a world of its own. Ice and Fire fanboys unite!
