ATLUS has released a new combat walkthrough video for “Game of Thrones,” the upcoming RPG based on the internationally bestselling book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin and the critically acclaimed HBO television series, Game of Thrones. Featuring an overview of core combat mechanics, tactical possibilities, and battle-relevant character customization options, the new video also provides fans with their first substantial look at how the upcoming RPG will look and feel in action. Moreover, the walkthrough takes care to present the game’s unique Active Pause battle mechanic, in which players can slow the pace of combat in order to properly plan their next few moves but cannot stop the action outright, maintaining the tension and urgency one would expect from fights in the Game of Thrones universe. When I first heard about this game I wasn’t sure about it, but the more I see of it the more I think that it will at least be decent if not really good. So far it looks to be an above average title with surprisingly good graphics and some of the kills in this trailer are just brutal. Check the video for yourself and let us know what you think about it in the comments.
