As the second series of Game of Thrones descends once more on to our screens, Koch Media have announced that the release date of the videogame spin-off isn’t too far behind.

Based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, Game of Thrones is set for release in early June, to be distributed by Koch Media across the UK and Ireland. With the books having already sold over 15 million novels around the world, the fantasy world is to be brought to vivid life on console and PC in an action RPG that boasts all the vengeance, allegiance, betrayal and honour fans have come to expect from the series.

Offering a brand new story developed with creative input from Martin himself, Game of Thrones throws fans into a rich, fantasy environment as they engage in a heart-pounding quest for the famous Iron Throne.

Playing as either Mors, Sworn Brother of the Night’s Watch, or Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption, players can expect to visit familiar locations from Westeros, such as The Wall and the famous King’s Landing, while well-known faces such as Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider and Jeor Mormont, Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch will crop up along the way.

Players will have full control of their character’s development; choosing their character’s class and developing a balance between strengths and weaknesses as experience is gained.

Game of Thrones is developed by French studio Cynaide and will release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in early June.
