Game of Thrones RPG in Development

Game of Thrones RPG in Development

Kotaku is reporting that Cyanide Studios, developers of the just-released Game of Thrones RTS title, has confirmed that a "Mass Effect like" RPG based on the best selling series of books by George R.R. Martin is currently being developed.

According to the interview with Yves Bordeleau, the Game of Thrones RPG "will pick up from there and move concurrently with the first season of the TV show (and the first book). True to the style of Martin's books, it will tell the story of two different characters, switching back and forth between them as their tales move alongside the events of the first book (and occasionally intersect with one another). None of the characters from the book will be playable, though the game's protagonists will cross paths with plenty of familiar faces over the course of the game."

The gameplay will be similar to that in Knights of the Old Republic and will utilize the "active pause system". The game will focus most on the story, something Bordeleau likened to KotOR and to the first Mass Effect. "Less action than Mass Effect 2", according to Bordeleau.
