Cyanide Studios and Atlus will release Game of Thrones in May and the video game adaptation adds an original location called Castlewood to the "A Song of Ice and Fire" saga.
Fifteen years ago, the Lord of Castlewood chose to support the House Targaryen during the victorious rebellion of Robert Baratheon, and was sentenced to die for this treason. His brother Arwood Harlton, loyal to King Robert, finally inherited Castlewood. Arwood is also known to be a great friend of House Sarwyck, and as the heir of Sarwyck family, you, Alester, will use Castlewood as a safe place to retreat if your quest turns too dangerous…
Castlewood is an original location, playing a key role in the video game while fitting into the existing “A Song Of Ice And Fire” saga. The township of Castlewood will be one of the many places the two heroes of the game – Mors, sworn brother of the Night’s Watch, and Alester, the Red Priest – will explore and fight through. From King’s Landing and Red Keep to the Wall, an Epic quest awaits our heroes, guided by revenge, loyalty, honor, and family, along a twisting plot filled with betrayal and vicious hardships.
Game of Thrones uses a battle system that mixes politics and melee combat. You can slow down time (but never completely stop a fight) to analyze the battlefield or use a political skill. Cyanide Studios explains the game will have different classes of characters with various fighting styles to choose from.
