A handful of new screenshots from Cyanide have given us a little taste of the game's representation of King's Landing - capital of Westeros. The new shots take a peek inside a brothel, show a Lannister guard in full armour, display a little inter-house scuffle, and give us a glimpse of a woman, presumably Cersei. You can also pick out a few of the house Sigils - primarily the Lannister lion and the Stark direwolf.
Here's the blurb from Cyanide to fill in some of the story details:
"Home to the Iron Throne, and the chief port in the Seven Kingdoms, this crowded city serves as the capital of Westeros. Seven gates, in homage to the Seven gods, offer passage into this dense, walled city built by Aegon the Conquerer, although other Targaryen kings have added to it.
"With the fate of Riverspring left in tumult, Alester has traveled to King's Landing to beseech Cersei to intercede on his behalf, not only in her capacity as queen, but also as one of the heads of House Lannister the liege lords of House Sarwyck. However, King's Landing and the royal court are not quite the same as they were before Alester went into exile all those many years ago, and it appears as if it will take more than a simple request to sway Robert Baratheon's queen."
The game will be released on May 15th for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
