The Game of Thrones action RPG has been given a June 8 UK and Ireland release date.
Developed by French studio Cynaide and set for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, the Unreal Engine 3 powered title features a new story written in conjunction with George R.R. Martin, the author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels which inspired the HBO television series.
Playing as Mors, Sworn Brother of the Night's Watch, and Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption, the game see players visiting familiar locations in Westeros such as The Wall and King's Landing, and encountering well-known faces like Queen Cersei and Varys the Spider, as they engage in a quest for the Iron Throne.
Last month we posted an exclusive video interview with Cyanide's lead game designer Sylvain Sechi, in which he told us about the processes of developing an original story and crafting the game's strategic combat system.
