development at FromSoftware that's coming to Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation
4. This confirms the
report that this is the title of FromSoftware's collaboration with acclaimed
fantasy author George R.R. Martin, who needed some way to fill his free time.

more mysterious and atmospheric than informative. Here's all they are revealing
