Views From Westeros In These New 'Game of Thrones' Screens

More images from the upcoming Atlus-published RPG based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Fire and Ice novels.

More images from the upcoming action RPG are making their way online courtesy of Atlus and the game's developer, Cyanide Studios. Plus, we now have more details about the story and to what extent the game will be tied to the wildly popular HBO series.

Here's the synopsis from the press kit:

Along the 30 hours of gameplay offered by Game of Thrones, play as Mors, sworn brother of the Night’s Watch, and Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption who is back to Westeros after a long exile. The Hand of King Robert Baratheon has just passed away, and these two charismatic heroes will find themselves dragged in a grand quest that will lead them through familiar and gorgeous places of Westeros, such like the Wall and its region, or the famous King’s Landing. In this grand adventure, they will meet famous faces: Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider or Jeor Mormont, the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch faithfully reproduced from the TV series.

In Game of Thrones, you will choose the class of your characters, find your fighting style, reach a good balance between your strengths and weaknesses, and get ready for epic battles! Find, buy or loot new equipment and weapons to fit your approach of the fights, and gain experience to improve your skills or learn new ones. Slow the time down during battle to analyze the situation and choose your next moves. In game of thrones, political skills can be as lethal as a sharpen sword, so never underestimate the power of a silver tongue to solve a critical situation!

Game of Thrones: The Game is coming to the PC, PS3, and 360 in early 2012. You can check out its site at its official site.
