Fans of the hit fantasy television show Game of Thrones can now join the dynastic struggle in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros with the release of a video game based on the series.

Computer game adaptations of television and films are generally met with a great deal of caution following the number of clangers down the years, but the role-playing game set in the A Song of Fire and Ice universe is set to buck the trend.

The plot follows a story that runs parallel to the TV show, with gamers viewing the world through the eyes of two separate characters. The first of which is Mors Westford, a ranger who has spent many a year defending the South from what lies behind the Wall in the Night's Watch, and Alester Sarwyck, a priest of R'Hllor who returns to his home in Riverspring after spending 15 years in exile when he hears of his father's death.

Game of Thrones fans will be familiar with the politics and diplomacy translated straight from the book that the TV show and game are based on, George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.

The stories of Westford and Sarwyck are completely original and canonised by Martin himself to fit in effortlessly with the Game of Thrones lore.

Developed using the Unreal Engine 3, Game of Thrones looks just the part, with beautiful textures, environments, animations and lighting effects so it truly feels like you are there within the city walls of King's Landing or the snowy wastes of the North.

Much like traditional role playing games, you can choose your character's class and style of combat to get the right balance to ensure you can play the game exactly to your style. You can then fight through the game to level up the character and find new weapons, armour, gear and skills.

Game of Thrones has been praised for its very strong story that features exciting and unpredictable twists, with players really getting to the depths of both the heroes and villains.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801382986-ADNFCR
