ATLUS (Index Digital Media, Inc.), in collaboration with HBO® and Cyanide Studios, have released a new video trailer and launched the official North American website for the upcoming RPG Game of Thrones, based on the internationally bestselling book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin and critically acclaimed HBO television series, Game of Thrones®. Launching worldwide in early 2012, the game will be available for Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3, and PC.In the new trailer, which is narrated by Lord Commander Jeor Mormont of the Night’s Watch – voiced by series star James Cosmo, who also lent his likeness to the game – introduces viewers to the bitter cold and solitude of the massive barrier of ice that stretches across the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms, protecting it from the wild lands beyond. Each member of the Night’s Watch, the order of black-garbed soldiers tasked with patrolling and guarding The Wall, must swear a solemn, life-long oath to the order, one punishable by death should it be broken. The trailer offers ample evidence of the game’s dedication to authenticity and to properly capturing the grit and drama the beloved fantasy series is famous for.
