SEGA has today announced the launch of the official The Golden Compass website, where you'll find all the info you could ever want about the game based on a film, which in turn is based on a fantasy novel.

The website will be your port of call if you want the latest news, screens, character profiles, location details and more concerning The Golden Compass.

The game is scheduled for release this winter and will bring to life the story of Lyra Belacqua on her quest to rescue her imprisoned uncle and kidnapped best friend. Lyra is joined on her quest by her spirit daemon, Pan, as well as a giant and powerful armoured bear, Iorek, and the mysterious Golden Compass.
