Focus Home Interactive has revealed that A Game of Thrones Genesis will be released in retail and on digital stores exclusively for the PC on 29th September, 2011.


Faithful to the world imagined by George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones - Genesis emphasizes the backstabbing and political intrigues which are common in Westeros and the fight for the Iron Throne. Command the assassination of an opponent's Great Lord, set up secret alliances, send a spy to take the place of the opponent's unit, or harass his trade routes to weaken his economy. Treasons, espionage, kidnapping and ransoms... treachery is everywhere.

In addition to the release date announcement, Focus Home Interactive has released a selection of new screenshots, which you can see below:

I'm actually reading the novels just now, this sounds really exciting. I am, however, a bit skeptical as to the quality of this game, having never heard of the devs before. Is there any chance we'll get a preview soon? ;)

"Cities XL", "Trackmania", "Call of Juarez" - Focus are Publishers/Distributors. The game is being developed by Cyanide (studios) who have mainly done Sports Sims ("Pro-Cycling Manager") up till 2004 ("Chaos League"). Their next project after this is "Of Orks and Men" (RPG) for 2012 release.

I have faith the game be will 'alright', not magnificent though (the TV series disappointed in many respects too).

I never read any of the books, so I thought the TV series was actually really good.
I probably wouldn't bother with the game though.

How did the TV series disappoint Herod? I found it to be amazingly faithful to the novels, especially compared to other adaptations(of novels to screens). The only nag I have about it is its low budget, which meant no big battles.
