Straight from the relatively small game publisher Cyanide Studios, who had put out a Game of Thrones strategy game earlier this game, and also were the minds behind the popular “fantasy” football game, Blood Bowl, comes the first George R.R. Martin and HBO-sanctioned Game of Thrones video game to date.
The game looks to stem from a few other popular games in the genre such as Skyrim, Dragon Age, and Assassin’s Creed with the aesthetic and feel of the environment, with some of our favorite characters from A Song of Fire and Ice making cameo appearances throughout the game.
With major distribution on XBox 360 and the PS3, the game is set to hit shelves early next year, just in time for the second season of the show to air on HBO. Take a look at tons of the game’s characters and events in the trailer after the jump, and prepare for the oncoming winter.
