Game of Thrones RPG on the way

Since I began immersing myself in the Kingdom of Westeros by reading "A Song of Ice and Fire" and watching "Game of Thrones" I began to imagine what it would be like to play a video game based on George R.R. Martin's epic story. Those who have been jonesing for an ASOIAF video game will not have to wait much longer. Cyanide Studios recently released a real-time strategy game based on the series, and are developing an RPG that is slated to come out in quarter one 2012. The game takes the information that we already have about The Seven Kingdoms and weaves in original characters. One of the great things about this game is that the story is being written in conjunction with the man himself, George R. R. Martin.

There's not official release date for the GoT RPG as of yet, but it's slated for "early 2012." The game will be released for PC and all next-generation consoles. Hopefully it will be as well-received as games like Dragon Age and Skyrim. Two more GoT-inspired games will be released in 2012, a browser-based MMO being developed by Bigpoint Games and a social game much like Farmville.

Will you be checking out this game? Leave a note in the comments!
