Game Of Thrones MMO: New Name, New Screenshots
Online game producer Bigpoint has revealed the official name of its upcoming free-to-play, massively multiplayer Game Of Thrones online role playing game – Game Of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms. The company has also revealed two new screenshots.
Bigpoint has partnered with HBO® to develop the game. Game Of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms will be set within the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, giving players the chance to experience epic moments from the television series.
Bigpoint will also premiere a new trailer for the game at the San Diego Comic-Con.
“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, siege combat and politics to control Westeros.
Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms beta testing is slated to begin later this year. Fans are encouraged to visit: http://www.GameofThronesMMO.com/ for more information and to follow the latest Twitter updates @GOTMMO.
