Cyanide have been busy beavering away on a tie to George R. R. Martin's fantastical opus and their RTS, yes it's an RTS, launches today for PC.
'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,' say publisher Focus Home Interactive. '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, so always watch your back!'
It's also apparently completely possible to win the game without engaging anyone in any kind of warfare whatsoever or even raising an army. Such are the advantages of having a halfling with +10 wit we suppose.
