Publisher Atlus has unveiled a pre-order bonus in the shape of an art book for Cyanide's upcoming Game of Thrones RPG. Select retailers offer the hardcover book of artworks.
Supplies are limited so they advise fans get in pre-orders mighty quick. It's 64 colour-pages of "sketches, renders, photos, and screenshots" from developer Cyanide. It's out mid-May.
There's also a behind-the-scenes commentary from the devs in the art book, a portrait of the team signed by A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin himself.
"'Game of Thrones: Visuals from the RPG' represents one of the most elaborate, expensive bonuses we have ever offered," said Atlus' Tim Pivnicny, VP of sales and marketing.
"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 Fire series 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."
Game of Thrones releases for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC May 15th. The 'Game of Thrones: Visuals from the RPG' art book will be available from Amazon (US and Canada), GameStop, EB Games, and the HBO Shop.
