Focus Home Interactive will publish “A Game of Thrones: Genesis”, Cyanide’s new strategy game

Posted on 07/19/2010


In 2009 Cyanide signed an agreement with George R. R. Martin to develop both an RTS and RPG based on his best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series. Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide confirm that there will be a RTS adapted from George R.R. Martin’s famous series of best-sellers novels and it will be called A Game of Thrones : Genesis. It will plunge players  into the heart of the battles and intrigues between the Families that shaped the Kingdom of Westeros. The innovative game mechanics provide players with numerous paths to success: they will be able to opt for a military, economic or diplomatic approach? Trickery, treachery and deceit are widespread and players will constantly have to watch their back if they want to avoid a bitter defeat!

The players can peacefully or forcefully annex surrounding territories, besiege enemy castles, send spies to infiltrate behind enemy lines, assassinate trouble-making officers or capture them to ask for a ransom… There will be no middle ground! In the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. For the moment no release date has been announced.
