Winter is coming: A Game of Thrones: Genesis
Unleash your swords to fight for the Iron Throne, as Cyanide released news that not only with Game of Thrones be a MMO real-time strategy game but also it will be released as a RPG! In addition to A Game of Thrones: Genesis Cyanide studio director Yves Bordeleau confirms in reports that a full scale RPG for consoles and PC’s and has a quaint game description of “Less action than Mass Effect 2, its closer to Knights of the Old Republic and the first Mass Effect. It’s all about the storyline.”
George R.R. Martin’s tales of treason, treachery and warfare are depicted in the strategy based A Game of Thrones: Genesis. Cyanide previously showcased art to be used in Game of Thrones: Genesis which is considerably better than the music fans are reporting is less than epic as the HBO’s series has. Official trailer on youtube is here, highlighting the rich landscapes and jutting castles, with a few great shots of The Wall.
Fans are anxious as Cyanide is coming out with 2 new characters instead of using the beloved book and Showtime series characters. The play runs parallel to the book events, but this is a risk some say with only running into the main characters depicted in the books. You can still run into Starks or Lannisters, but only shortly. Cyanide has not announced a published but the Game of Thrones: Genesis is set to be released in Summer 2012.
