Cyanide Studio has announced that they'll be creating two more games set in the gritty Confrontation tabletop universe, to which they now own the license. Aarklash: Legacy will be a squad-based strategy game, while Dogs Of War Online plans to go down the free to play route.
Considering that their first attempt at a Confrontation videogame was deeply mediocre in every conceivable way, the developers behind the Game Of Thrones RPG and numerous cycling sims will need to up the ante.Click here to read more...
For fans of the books and TV show this deal should be irresistible because it gives you the chance to walk around Westeros as either a veteran ranger of the Night's Watch or a priest of R'hllor. Unfortunately, the game's a little bit average so you'd probably be better off watching an episode of the TV show. Simply Games are parting with PC copies of the game for £16.85, which should make you a saving of £3 on the next best offers out there.
As excited as I am about Cyanide's Game of Thrones RPG, which I'm sure you all already know is based on A Song of Fire and Ice by George R. R. Martin, chances are I'll be sat in the cinema enjoying Ridley Scott's Prometheus when it's released on June 1st. The game follows Mors Westford, a long serving ranger of the Night's Watch, and Alester Sarwyck, a priest of R'hllor, on their adventures around Westeros. The jury's still out as to whether this one's going to be any good and the trailer doesn't really give much away, but I'm sure fans of the books and TV series'll be out in force to pick up copies of the game.Click here to check out the trailer!
Cyanide have been busy beavering away on a tie to George R. R. Martin's fantastical opus and their RTS, yes it's an RTS, launches today for PC.
'Faithful to the world imagined by George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones - Genesis emphasizes the backstabbing and political intrigues which are common in Westeros and the fight for the Iron Throne,' say publisher Focus Home Interactive. 'Command the assassination of an opponent's Great Lord, set up secret alliances, send a spy to take the place of the opponent's unit, or harass his trade routes to weaken his economy. Treasons, espionage, kidnapping and ransoms... treachery is everywhere, so always watch your back!'
It's also apparently completely possible to win the game without engaging anyone in any kind of warfare whatsoever or even raising an army. Such are the advantages of having a halfling with +10 wit we suppose.Check out the official trailer after the jump...
