Bigpoint revealed the official name of its upcoming free-to-play browser based MMORPG as Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms. 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. Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms will be set within the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, giving players the chance to experience epic moments from the television series.

In context of the lore, the Seven Kingdoms were originally independent countries which rose up over thousands of years until the Targaryens ruled over them as one nation of Westeros. Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms begins after the deaths of King Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark. The Starks of the north declare war on the south and Baratheon’s two brothers both make claims to the throne. Players are challenged to form alliances through Player vs. Player, Siege combat and politics to control Westeros.

Fans attending San Diego Comic-Con (July 12-15) will also have the opportunity to get a first look at the exclusive new Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms trailer by Bigpoint which can be viewed at booth 2615 (Dark Horse). The teaser captures the essence of gameplay and visual fidelity that players will get to experience when the game is launched.

Bigpoint is collaborating with Norwegian development studio, Artplant, on the development of the forthcoming Unity-based project. Bigpoint and Artplant have previously partnered on the production of Battlestar Galactica Online, a free to play space combat MMO that recently celebrated its first birthday and 10 million registered pilot milestone.

Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms beta testing is slated to begin later this year. Fans are encouraged to visit: http://www.GameofThronesMMO.com/

    Game of Thrones series are the best, but browser game meh. They could do a proper mmo, cause there is great story, awesome characters, but no they making some crapy browser based thing and hope to get easy money from the title whit out spending to much of theyr own ( sorry for raging ).

    Iam a huge fan of Game of Thrones, but this is going to be a FAIL.
    1st:Bigpoint=Cash, cash and cash, if you dont have cash, you fail.
    2nd:Browser based: C’mon!I know browser based games have decent engines, but they are UNSTABLE!Downloads every time, lag and major bugs.Why you guys dont make a client based game?

    Oh Its About Time For The New Free To Play Weekly hahah

    love the series, and love the books, but this is ridiculous. this is going to be a game that will not last due to there are already too many hack & slash mmo’s already out there. this game will never live up to the status of the books nor the hbo series. too bad somebody actually thought that this would be a good idea, sounds like they need to find a different job. this game should not be made, it will only go down in history of mmo’s like swtor has.

    Bigpoint? another fail game -_-

  11. zenomex on July 4, 2012

    Browser game? great. that means all brazilians, pinoys, and 10 year-olds that can’t afford a gaming rig will be able to ”troll” their way through this game. Another game based on a movie that will completely ruin the franchise.

    • Feld on July 4, 2012

      Sup bro.
      I’m brazilian. And I can afford and awesome game rig. There’s no game out that I couldn’t play on HQ graphics ’till this day. And EVERY gamer I know here also can.
      Of course there are many people like you who think that everyone in Brazil is poor as f** and can’t afford an ejoyable life. But you’re wrong. Although THERE ARE many, many poor people in Brazil (every country does), the quality of life is great to many of the population.
      A whole country is not made of a fake impression.

      AND, I agree that there are many, many, MANY noobs, trolls, stupid, childish brazilian gamers. And sometimes I’m even ashamed of saying I’m brazilian when I’m playing some MMO.

      But no, it’s not everyone.

        I don’t want to be mean buuut… What is your argument exactly? He said Brazilians are poor and statistics show that the masses there are in reality poor, he said there are many brazil nubs and in reality there really are loads of brazilian twats (like in Russia) that troll alot!
        Also …. Lag factor? Seriously? I am from EU and i play on NA servers without a problem!

        So… Yea… Really?

    • brandnewdaddy on July 5, 2012

      Wow I laughed when I read this comment, I used to be just like you, all bias against brazilians because of their lag factor. TBH the main reason when someone lags because they are from Brazil are due to about 55% of the population run on a ISP that is so far from their house that the ping basis make it difficult for anyone in any other country to play with them. example, your in the US so people from Brazil, Australia, France Germany and even Thailand will lag because of how few ISP there are for the population on the ISP server.

      So before you feel the need to rant and rave about Brazilians and pinoys, do your homework.

      oh an there are more people who play in the US that actually do not have systems to run anything just like any other country.

      • zenomex on July 7, 2012

        what homework? i never said anything about lag, noob. fps and lag is a completely diff game. idc if they lag, its only funnier seeing them blink their way through the map.

  12. StyL3sX on July 4, 2012

    Hehe in Serial have a nice story πŸ˜› ..
    i wish game will be awesome:) πŸ˜€

  13. Rinor on July 4, 2012

    okay i dont hate browser games n all but i mean seriously i think game of thrones would of been muchhhhhhh better on a proper game its just such a HUGE world (beyond the series) and putting it into a browser doesnt do it justice in my opinion maybe im wrong but seriously… big point are just spitting out games and im worried that they arent gunna make any good ones cus they are so scattered

  14. Evankhell on July 4, 2012

    Man if they manage it good enough this can be friggin great succes, just hope its not another standard game (i dont have nothing against them i just dont like them) and make it big πŸ™‚

    • Emil on July 4, 2012

      They won’t …. Just like Drakensang online… I hope this shee is not browsed-based but i will try it out for sure πŸ™‚

      • Evankhell on July 4, 2012

        Is the drakensang online irony or is it serious, not saying that its a bad game, just never played πŸ˜€ is it good?

        • lilfighter on July 5, 2012

          Graphics and shit are good, but I dont know…It just doesn`t feel the way it should, it looks very interesting but it gives me that feeling that the game is not important and no one actually plays it.

          • Evankhell on July 5, 2012

            i played some of bigpoint games and today i played drakensang, is the same feeling i had in battlestar galactica, dont know why i dont get into it. right now im playing poe CBT and i spend 3 hours in a row but i cant stand that much time playing battlestar nor drankensang πŸ™‚ hope game of thrones makes me stay much longer than the other 2 πŸ™‚

          • Emil on July 5, 2012

            well alot of people play Drakensang including me (from time to time now, don’t have enough of it to spare more for that game) and all in all it is good, BUT it could have developed into an even better game if they didn’t force you to pay for health potions (which i don’t really use). I just hope that they don’t do the same with this game and i hope they will make a downloadable client like for Drakensang (yes they have a downloadable game client!)

          • skuddies on July 5, 2012
