A Game of Thrones – Genesis is a new strategy game developed for PC by Cyanide and based on George R.R. Martin’s best-seller series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire. The official website for this upcoming title has just launched, filled with a rich array of original artwork and game details.
A Game of Thrones – Genesis immerses you into the heart of the battles and intrigues between the Houses that shaped the Kingdom of Westeros. From Nymeria’s arrival in the Kingdom of Dorne to the awakening of the “Others” beyond the Wall, you’ll live the origins of the A Song of Ice and Fire saga through more than 1000 years of history. Take part in Westeros’ founding events and largest battles such as Aegon the Conqueror’s invasion on the continent or the War of the Usurper.
In this strategy game, victory does not necessarily result from brute force. You can choose to use a military approach and besiege your opponents, strangle them in an economical war, or even use dirty tricks and diplomacy to politically crush them. Treachery and deception are everywhere, so watch your back and prepare for battle!
The single player campaign has been written under the supervision of author George R.R. Martin, and also supports multiplayer for up to 8 players to confront each others to claim the Iron Throne in intense conflicts where alliances, betrayals, cheap shots, and pitched battles will determine the victor.
A Game of Thrones – Genesis will be released on PC in summer 2011.
