Game of Thrones Web MMORPG Details

Bigpoint reveals new details about their browser-based Game of Thrones MMORPG that was first revealed late last year. A preliminary website is online, and they say the game is in the works at Norwegian developer Artplant, and they say they expect it to go into closed beta testing in the fall. Here's a bit on how this will work: "Bigpoint’s design goal is to capture the show’s compelling drama and action and create a visceral gaming experience via an unprecedented level of visual fidelity. The bloodthirsty struggle for power, corruption, and deception will persist. To ensure survival of their dynasty, players must master combat and politics." They say more details will be revealed at next week's Game Developer Conference.

I'm sure this browser game will be a piece of shit, but not because its GoT (because its a browser game, lol).

If you don't think GoT can translate well to any type of video game you should try paradox's Crusader Kings 2 and tell me it isn't just begging for a GoT mod.

The political intrigue and war bits are perfect for a grand strategy game. The GoT:Genesis game was a giant turd though, but the developers were obviously incompetent and just did a rush job trying to cash in quickly on the TV shows popularity (which i'm sure is bigpoint's plan too).
