A link on target has possibly leaked a Bethesda Game of Thrones game.
A Bethesda Game of Thrones game? Lol...so let me get this straight. They said they had no news to share on Elder Scrolls VI because they wanted to invest and make new games YET the one they do (if this is true) is basically Elder Scrolls with a license attached ...right.
I actually saw a leak months ago that said Bethesda are making a game of thrones game Also in the leak was a scifi space exploration RPG called Starfield
Can't wait to see what empty shell of a gaming experience they barf out with this license. Copy pasted quests, poor animations with a 12 year old game engine.
@thekhurg I love Bethesda games, always have as do most people. That's why they almost always top the charts. If true it will be day 1 for me.
@thekurg a long time back they said they were working on a new engine for their future games, keep your hopes up! ^^
@krysis that doesn't take away from the fact that Bethesda's two biggest selling games Fallout and ES are broken glitch fests. Their worlds may be amazing but gameplay and technical issues on the level of them is inexcusable considering the size and experience of the teams making the games. Yet these two franchises continuously get a free pass from the media and people buy it regardless.
So Bethesda is going to make a fantasy RPG GoT game that has little to no magic, sword fighting, dragon battles and plenty of incest? Not sure about this...
It's interesting cause awhile ago I had heard(it might have been on a Did you Know Gaming Episode not sure) that Bethesda was offered the chance to make a Game of Thrones game awhile back like before the show I think and they turned it down despite being fans of the books because they wanted to focus on the Elder Scrolls. It would be somewhat odd to all of a sudden change that stance and make a game now if this ends up being true. I would honestly be a bit disappointed simply because I was hoping the Sci Fi game they are supposed to be working on was next and I was very interested in what they could do with their formula in space or sci fi settings.
I just don't get why they would waste their time on another fantasy RPG game set in a similar setting when they could be giving us new things. Sci-Fi...Modern...Viking etc
Will it have bewbs?
Asking the true questions here
Probably, but they'll be from Bethesda's art design team, so probably won't look that good.
i know the engine isn't capable but when rage came out the first thing i thought was if fallout is ever made on rage(ID5) engine that would be amazing. It's time for bethesda to upgrade to a brand new engine please we have had enough of this 12 years old engine. With all the bugs and glitches along with performance/graphical issues it's time to have a brand new engine build from ground up for bethesda open world games
I think CD Project Red would do a better job of it.
Interesting A new IP ish game
Hope so, really want a good Game of Thrones game
telltales GoT is great... their work shouldn't be called "games" though
Hopefully its show based with all seasons
I'd rather a unique stpry where you can choose to take the throne either by force, politics or stealthily. I watch the show for the show I don't wanna play it. Imagine starting as a small lord of a house and then conquering westoros only to have the dead or the east come at you. Game has so much potential if on right.
Oh cool, so Skyrim 2 then?
Game of thrones is different than Skyrim. Sure, the show got dragon just like the game. But major differences is the story and the race. I don't want to bring too much detail bet, so I will make it simple. Game of Thorns don't have argonian.
So a down played skyrim then, they have different ethnicities, not races. They have white walkers (skyrim calls them druegers), medival settings of armor and weapons (elder scrolls 4: oblivion), dragon language like khalesi (skyrim calls them dragon shouts or thu'ums for short), am i missing anything? Ships? Skyrim and oblivion had it but they didnt go as far as to use them other than fast travel. Got has no magic except fire but you have to join a cult for that ability, thats it really. Oh and the many faces (dark brother hood). The only thing got has truly incomparison to elder scrolls is horse armor
@Sam FIsher why a downplayed skyrim? It's a different world magic isnt as prevelent anymore in current GoT time same with dragons, in the past there used to be a lot more of it. And not because there is not dragons flying everywhere or magic everywhere means it downplayed. What if they made the setting way before GoT where the andals and the children of the forest still live in big numbers. I know bethesda is good at creating their own world, but im pretty sure they can make a game equivalant in quality to skyrim from GoT franchise.
Michiel Good point never thought of it to that point
I think CDProjektred would make a better Westeros than Bethesda.
I kindda agree with that. But we'll see. I'm excited for this either way because I'm a huge GOT fan.
Probably, but the combat would still suck.
Still beats the Elder Scrolls' combat if you ask me. The melee aspect at least.
How the fighting in got, is normal guys wayling swords around, its not spartacus if thats what you mentioning, so bethsda melee is perfect for it if you ask me
I wonder how HBO is going to react when they see all the launch glitches and errors. As much as I like the developer, it's expected to have a sh*tshow on launch day.
Its cool hbo gets their shows leaked, so no surprise they choose a glitch company
Glitches and errors would fit right in with D&D's writing
Oh my god, that would be the best thing ever°!
Unless Bethesda freaking fix their engine and get rid of the fetch quest.
Fetch quest is got, people just travel. What did john snow do to get cersi attention, fetch quest
HO*Y SH*T!!!! SH*T just got real. Excited for a GoT game. But I wish it will be made by CD Project RED.
Like everyone i saw, i'd enjoy a GoT from CD Projekt !! I can bet it would be really a fantastic experience ! Still, from Bethesda, knowing their freedom, i can imagine something like playing with a character u make, choose either go to the Night's Watch, or someone from a Family, Stark, Lannister etc and make ur fate from there
It's like Skyrim with...uh...
Bewbs...so many bewbs
Could be cool. Fans have been asking for a proper thrones rpg for year so it makes sense. Hopefully they use a new engine but I wouldn't hold my breath. Either way I'd be happy to buy this game
LOL another Skyrim with a different name But i can't complain I love Skyrim so i would buy it.
They should choose an interesting IP. Like Lord of the Rings.
shots fired... And there's already another studio making LotR games (Shadow of War)
I rather have a Battle for Middle-Earth 3 <3
Cool, we get to have a Game of Thrones game littered with bugs.
this would be awesome
That is a nice surprise. I think Bethesda could pull it off.
DONT FUG WITH ME. DONT FUG WITH ME! IS THIS TRUE?
Winter is coming guys :)
After the last episode screw GOT 😂
Wouldnt this just be Elder Scrolls with Game Of Thrones ? Would it start with Jon Snow in prison ?
Replace the emperor with Robert Baratheon and the sewer rats with another animal. There you have it.
Not sure how I feel about this. Wouldn't it just be Elder Scrolls with Game of Thrones characters? I love GoT but I also want a new Elder Scrolls game.
Much would have preferred one from CD Projekt Red, but I'll take Bethesda, they're a great dev too. That, and I've a tender spot for anything GoT related! Really hope (if true) the timeline isn't from the one we all know from the books / TV. I would love a new experience set in the past, or near future from the conclusion.
Hopefully it's based off of the books, not the TV show, otherwise it'd be a teleport simulator with little story
Has the potential to be truly great. Please though Bethesda, a new engine.
Bethesda could stand to step it up, for sure. Especially in animations and voice acting.
god please help this be true. i would love to make my own legacy in westeros
I really hope they aren't wasting their time on GoT if this is to be their next big game...
Oh my finally, sign me up for that and take my God damn money now. An online mmorpg game of throne yes please all the way.
I bet it's mobile or VR. Some mini game not an elder scrolls scale game.
Bethesda is becoming a very casual, la la la, ordinary game company in light speed. Make TES 6, god damn it!!!!!
Stopped after season 5 i will just get the show when it is over .
I'd much rather it was a CD Project Red game, in the style of the witcher 3...
I only started (and binged all of) the show last month. I would love to be able to explore Westeros, even if it's a bit buggy. My one hope is that combat would be actually good. Not like Skyrim.
