It's called Seven Kingdoms, and takes place after the deaths of

King Robert Baratheon and Hand of the King, Eddard Stark

And the developers plan to release a trailer... this month, at Comic-Con.

I'll only be happy if I can play as White Walkers or those dirtbag sea-people.

MMO fatigue, or do you wanna play this? I can only hope it's more in the style of something like Mount and Blade. Man, that gets my dick stiff.

Can't wait for people to complain about even more pointless things than this being an MMO.

It's a F2P browser-based MMO. Predicting it will be awful is about as mindless and idiotic as predicting that the sun will rise tomorrow.

Oh dear lord. Starting to feel like GoT is getting a little overexposed nowadays. Soon we'll start seeing GoT tie-ins with McDonald's Happy Meals....

If it's a standard static MMO I couldn't care less, but the world has so much awesome potential if they allow for politics and castle take-overs and assassinating King Joffrey (presumably?) and crazy stuff like that, I would definitely be interested.

I was just about to do that! 


Another commercial cheap-shot MMO hoping to make money off its popular name? This is getting ridiculous.

I fully admit to TRYING to read the first book... I just don't get it. It is barely descriptive of what is going on and you have to have a character sheet or a glossary for this kind of story which has so many random names... Is the show any good because I cannot get into the books at all.

Crusader Kings 2 mod is good enough for now!

I guess I just don't... "Get" Fantasy literature... Like Lord of the Rings. That books series is basically unreadable for me. I mean, I can read them just fine. Just that all the made up names and descriptions that can go one for HUNDREDS of pages sundered my damn soul. Trust me, I got to the middle of Two Towers and I just could not finish it...

Science fiction though. Thank goodness authors know not to write in old timey fashion and stuff! Hardcore science fiction is IMO way more accessible than fantasy.

The history of GoT/ASoIaF games is pretty abysmal (this coming from someone who kinda enjoyed the recent RPG, despite it's massive, massive flaws). This one, from the turdmancers over at Bigpoint, will likely be the worst of the bunch, which is saying something.

@Jay444111: idk what you're talking about, Game of Thrones is light reading tbh. If you want to read something so boring it's painful, pick up a copy of Last of the Mohicans.

Don't let Lannisters in your group, they're just huntards who need on everything even if it's not for them. And Baratheons always pull aggro.

I wonder when Wrath of the White Walker King will be released.

But on a side note there are elements integral to the books/show that make this series what it is that wouldn't translate well to a game. The incest/rape/character relationships create a very complex level of tension and that creates an interesting viewer experience; how that will translate to gameplay has me a bit weary. I feel like guys who worked on the Witcher would do well on this project.

@Jay444111: Eh I thought Game of Thrones was actually pretty easy to follow even with the amount of characters, it's just really well written. Maybe because I had watched the first 5 episodes of the show before starting to read the books and it was easier to match faces to the names, maybe you could try that. Or at least just watch the show, it's awesome.

The books are really interesting once you get a handle of the characters and I'm already on book four now , way ahead of where the show is and am excited to see all the things I read be brought to life in the show.

Meh... The world of ASoIaF is pretty plain. It has some castles here and there. It gets cold for long periods of time. There are animals. Zombies. There is a wall and north of it it is snowy. The lore and world is nothing compared to LotR, with elves, dwarves, mines of moria, thick woods with live trees, orcs/goblins, magic. I just don't think it will make a great MMO. I like the ASoIaF books because of the current plot. I just think the lore and world is generic crap.

My first thought too. I'm inclined to think it's not a well known company (as that would've probably been mentioned), which also leads me to the conclusion that this will probably not be an amazing game.

EDIT: qoute from eurogamer: "A new trailer for the free-to-play browser-based role-playing game from Battlestar Galactica Online and Drakensang Online developer Bigpoint will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con later this month."

Ye... not gonna hold my breath for this :P

I would have been interested in the MMO but you just mentioned a Game of Thrones in the style of Mount and Blade and now I'm too busy salivating over the potential of that. It's great because I already play M&B like a self-serving asshole who betrays and murders everyone, so making it play into and react to my anarchism would be wonderful.

I'm pretty amazed no one has released anything similar to Mount & Blade since M&B itself. Hell, if they knew how games worked at all they'd hire the Mount & Blade dudes to make a GoT game, and just throw money and man-power at them.
