Game of Thrones MMO: GDC Sneak Peek Incoming

BigPoint has announced that attendees of this year's Game Developer's Conference will be able to get a first look at the MMO currently in development based on the Song of Fire & Ice book series by George R.R. Martin. BigPoint has partnered with HBO to bring the popular TV series to life and has chosen Norwegian development studio, Artplant, to bring the game to life.

Bigpoint has selected seasoned Norwegian development studio, Artplant, as is its development partner for this project. The title will be built atop the Unity development platform, the technology behind several of Bigpoint’s breakthrough titles, including Battlestar Galactica Online, which Artplant also helped develop. Over 80 million consumers have installed the Unity plug-in, which enables them to play extremely high-fidelity games through their web browsers.

The initial closed beta phase is scheduled to begin sometime in the Fall of 2012.

Check out the Game of Thrones MMO site for more information.
