Continuing on with the Game of Thrones news, Bigpoint, a global leader in online games, has today announced that they will be providing a exclusive first look at their upcoming Game of Thrones browser based MMO at the Game Developers Conference this year.
Bigpoint has partnered with HBO to develop the game inspired by the network’s critically acclaimed television show, Game of Thrones, adapted from the bestselling fantasy book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R.R. Martin.

The game will be set within the fictional, medieval world of Westeros and its Seven Kingdoms, where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime. Bigpoint will discuss the game’s development with select journalists at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next week, March 7-9.
Bigpoint’s design goal is to capture the show’s compelling drama and action and create a visceral gaming experience via an unprecedented level of visual fidelity. The bloodthirsty struggle for power, corruption, and deception will persist. To ensure survival of their dynasty, players must master combat and politics.

What's also of interest is that Artplant, the development studio in charge of this deathly creation, will be using the Unity engine, one that has been growing in use via mobile phone apps and web based games.

Currently in development, the MMO will see a closed beta in Autumn 2012 with a release date yet unknown. There is only one screenshot at the moment, and it's dubbed art work, however it looks awfully realistic to be artwork.
