‘Game of Thrones’ getting three new games in 2012

Game of Thrones

After a lukewarm reception for its first foray into the videogame realm, George R.R. Martin and HBO will be bringing three new “Game of Thrones” adaptations to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC next year.

First will be a roleplaying game that will hit all three platforms and is being developed by Cyanide Studio, developer of A Game of Thrones: Genesis, and produced by Catherine creator Atlus. The title will be based on an original story by Martin and provided video from HBO so it parallels the show.

The other two titles in development are a free-to-play MMO by Battlestar Galactica Online publisher Bigpoint and a social networking game.

Though Martin will be working with the games, he admitted that “I am not an expert in this field…I trust in (the developers’) expertise.”

New characters have been created by Martin for the upcoming roleplaying game, including members of the Night’s Watch and a Red priest. According to the writer/author, the game “has some interesting stuff and looks gorgeous.”

“Game of Thrones” is based off of Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel series. The show gets its name from the title of the first book and Martin’s latest in the saga, “A Dance with Dragons”, released just this past summer.
