Korean gaming giant Netmarble held its annual “Netmarble Together with Press” or “NTP” event yesterday in South Korea, and as usual tons of Pay-To-Earn, blockchain, metaverse and whatnot news were mentioned. But we will just focus on the new “real” games announced, starting with a collaboration with HBO, Game of Thrones. Yes, Netmarble is making an open world RPG based on Game of Thrones, and specifically just for mobile devices using Unreal Engine 5.
The team handling this project is Netmarble Neo, which previously developed Lineage 2: Revolution and The King of Fighters Allstar. According to Netmarble Neo, the team has “melted the deep experience of single-player and the magnificent experience of large-scale multiplayer into one game.” There are also new stories in the game not seen in the HBO TV series, including character conflicts. Battles with the White Walkers are also confirmed! Stay tuned for more updates.
