Political Intrigue Not Seen In New A Game Of Thrones Screens

A Game of Thrones — Genesis seems to be a big fan of flashing us with pictures of rolling landscapes, snow and the odd knight or two.

This latest batch of five new screens is no different. The press release that accompanied the images tells us that the game will "emphasise the backstabbing and political intrigues which are common in Westeros and the fight for the Iron Throne. 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!"

Well, every where but in these images. That's OK, they're still pretty.

A Game of Thrones — Genesis will release for PC in retail and digital stores on September 29.


    That's not what 'The Wall' is supposed to look like =(

      If that's the worst mistake they make in this game I will be happy.

        Even if this game's negotiation is as deep as Civ 5's (which I doubt), it's still a far cry from the political machinations of the books.

        The fact that the Wall has towers and distinctly looks like stone bricks, rather than carved ice? Ohhh boy.

    If that's 'The Wall', the scale of the game world is very, very wrong.

      It can't be the wall. Surely they wouldn't mess it up THAT badly.

    Even though they're bringing it out after the TV series, they have only based it on the book.

    Major fail.

    I think from here on out I'm gonna just pretend this game isn't real. I need to just look away.
