Fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series will soon have another way to kill some time as they wait for the fifth book to be published.
A Game of Thrones: Genesis is a real-time strategy game for PCs with single player and multiplayer campaigns that let you pick a faction and battle for the Irone Throne of Westeros. Others from the frozen North, dragons from the east, and powerful fleets moving across the Western seas meet and clash as you use diplomacy, connivance, and economic might to build the best army in the Seven Kingdoms. If anything, it offers a way for fans to play out years of end-game scenario speculation, if not offering them what they want the most—further adventures with their favorite characters.
As with A Dance of Dragons, there’s no hard release date, but it’s scheduled for Summer 2011. Visit Cynide’s website to sign up for the latest news.
