Cyanide has confirmed that it is working on an RPG based around the Game of Thrones universe. While it was being developed before the HBO series came into existence they negotiated a deal with HBO to use some assets and character designs from the locations and characters from the TV series.

“We entered the agreement late in the game, unfortunately,” said Cyanide’s studio director Yves Bordeleau, “but we managed to have a lot of characters and locations modeled [after the series.]”

Knights of the Old Republic was cited as a major inspiration and there will be choices made that can effect the game’s story. “You pause the game to give orders, but it doesn’t really pause, it slows the time down. You can see something coming and react to it,” said Bordeleau. “Less action than Mass Effect 2, it’s closer to Knights of the Old Republic and the first Mass Effect. It’s all about the storyline.”
