These Game Of Thrones Screenshots Are Dark

Cyanide's upcoming Game of Thrones RPG promises to let players explore the world of Westeros, rather than just be led around it by an author and/or a TV show.

Since nobody has played the thing, or even knows that much about it, we can't vouch for how good it is. We can vouch for how it looks, though, and these screens show the game is at least trying to stick to the visual identity laid down by the current HBO adaptation (which is to be expected, since some of the characters in the game will match the appearances of their rendition in the show).

In addition to these screens, the game's developers claim there's around 30 hours of gameplay to be had, and that in your travels you'll be taking control of two men, a member of the Night's Watch and a Red Priest.

For those who have read the books (or seen the show), the game will be set right after the death of King Robert, the player caught up in the wars that quickly engulf the land.

It'll be out in 2012. You can see the last batch of screenshots here.

    Looks very, very Witcher.

      Well, Witcher 1... (I don't really care, as long as it's stable and plays well.)

      I hope this is good. So much potential here.

      You'll be playing a brother of the Night's Watch in this. AKA no Witcher-style boning.

        That wasn't actually strictly enforced, according to the book series' mention of the brothers' favorite whores.

    As long as I get to play through the battle at Blackwater Rush, I'm going to be exstatic.

    As long as it is more polished than the RTS I will be happy, that game was horrendous.
