Atlus Unveils Full Color, Hardcover Art Book for Game of Thrones RPG

Atlus Unveils Full Color, Hardcover Art Book for Game of Thrones RPG

Yesterday, Atlus announced that those who pre-order the upcoming Game of Thrones title from select retailers would receive a rather nice pre-order bonus. This full color hardcover art book is limited edition and in limited quantities. It is also the perfect companion piece for the RPG based on the international best-selling book series by George R. R. Martin and critically-acclaimed television series on HBO.

Featuring sixty-four full color pages, this is one of Atlus’ finest bonuses to be made available. Inside the hardcover book are renders, sketches, and screenshots taken from the game. Compelling text and commentary from the title’s developers accompany the gorgeous art. This is even a portrait of the development team signed with a special message from George R. R. Martin himself among other special behind-the-scenes material. The quality of this book is impressive, measuring at 8.5″ wide and 11″ tall. All the hard work that went into creating this really proves the love of the series and fans.

Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Atlus, Tim Pivnicny, comments:

“‘Game of Thrones: Visuals from the RPG’ represents one of the most elaborate, expensive bonuses we have ever offered. Everything about this premium art book is above and beyond the typical pre-order bonus, and all at no additional cost to the customer.  Its larger dimensions, page count, hardcover binding, and exceptional print quality are more in line with what fans would expect from a Deluxe Edition extra or a separate purchase, which is why it will only be available at select retailers and quantities will be extremely limited.  The A Song of Ice and Fireseries of books and the Game of Thrones TV series are as special to us as they are to the millions of fans around the world; we are thrilled we can offer this unique bonus to complement the first major video game release based on the franchise.”

If you haven’t done so yet, there is still time to pre-order Game of Thrones. The RPG is set to release on May 15 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. For those who want to be able to see the hardcover book in all its glory, you can receive it by pre-ordering from Amazon (US and Canada), GameStop, EB Games, and the HBO Shop.
