Bigpoint, the developer of Battlestar Galactica Online and Drakensang Online, has announced that the name of the Game of Thrones MMO is to be Seven Kingdoms.
The game is largely based off of the HBO TV series rather than George R. R. Martin's series of novels. It's set within the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, hence its name, and gives players the chance to experience "epic moments" from the show.
The new trailer for the free-to-play browser-based role playing game premiered at San Diego Comic-Con on July 12th – 15th for the Seven Kingdoms. Bigpoint had made a statement in their press release about the game title and how it should be recognizable for fans to realize just what the game is about. "Selecting a game's title can be quite an arduous process, especially in the free-to-play space where games must be easily discoverable by players around the world," said Max Pfaff, Producer, Bigpoint. "By selecting Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms we're confident that we've chosen an identifiable name that will resonate with the global community of diehard Thrones fans"
The setting of the game takes place "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 (PvP), Siege combat and politics to control Westeros".
