ByDate: 07-02-2012 Views:
The upcoming MMO by Bigpoint now has a full name: Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms. The game is based on the adapted HBO television series, which in turn is based off of A Song of Ice and Fire written by George R.R. Martin.
In addition, Bigpoint also revealed that the official trailer for Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms will be debut at this year's San Diego Comic-Con set to take place July 12th-15th.
"Selecting a game's title can be quite an arduous process, especially in the free-to-play space where games must be easily discoverable by players around the world," said Max Pfaff, Producer, Bigpoint. "By selecting Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms we're confident that we've chosen an identifiable name that will resonate with the global community of diehard Thrones fans."
In context of the lore, the Seven Kingdoms were originally independent countries which rose up over thousands of years until the Targaryens ruled over them as one nation of Westeros. Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms begins after the deaths of King Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark. The Starks of the north declare war on the south and Baratheon's two brothers both make claims to the throne. Players are challenged to form alliances through Player vs. Player (PvP), Siege combat and politics to control Westeros.
Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms is expected to begin beta testing later this year. You can visit: http://www.GameofThronesMMO.com/ for more information.
