Let me start off by saying, this game is going to probably be one of the best narrative based games we have seen to date for a couple of reasons. First, it’s “Game of Thrones”, and perhaps that alone is enough for many of us to jump on board. If you haven’t read the books or at least seen the show, you’re missing out on an amazing universe full of political intrigue, lust, power, war, heroes, villains and a rich fantasy environment that these characters call home. This is George R.R.

We should be in for a big treat!

Based on the success of most every other title Blizzard has created, including the recently introduced and wildly popular card game “Hearthstone”, fans should be ready for another breakout hit.
