I'm suprised it hasn't been posted here yet:



(epic soundtrack)
So yeah, it seems that Cyanide Studios is making an rpg based on the books. According to the trailer the story is new, but I can spot lots of familiar faces so it's probably set in the same time period.
Other trailers:
Spoiler

Hopefully it'll be better than the RTS. The graphics don't look great, but running around Westeros must be fun.

Game of Thrones: The Roleplaying Game puts players in control of two original characters, Mors Westfold and Alester Sarwyck. They do not appear in the novels, although GRRM has indicated to the studio that he might choose to make mentions of them, their families, or details from the game's story in later novels. The game does now have an open world like Skyrim or the old Baldur's Gate game. Instead the story is divided into point of view-based "chapters", with cliffhangers and twists ending each chapter, much like in the novels where one chapter from the perspective of one character is followed by a chapter from a completely different character. Both of them have special abiltiies and three fighting modes. Mors is a skinchanger and can slip into his dog to find secret paths or to listen in on conversations, and he can even follow a character's tracks through scent. Alester is a red priest who can set fire on his sword using wildfire, he can look into the flames to find secrets, at higher levels, can use certain fire-based magic.

The characters are fixed in terms of background and appearances, but you can customize them greatly in terms of their abilities. First, you can choose different fighting styles. Mors can be set as a "Ragnar" (allowing dual-wielding), Hedge Knight (one two-handed weapon) or Landed Knight (a weapon in the hand, a shield on the other). Alester, on the other hand, can be set up as a Water Dancer (light and agile, with a slender blade), a Sellsword (daggers and poisons), or Ranger (Bow and arrows).

I always think its funny if people say look at this game, this gonna be so cool.
And then show me a trailor that doesnt show me nothing or almost nothing of actual gameplay.

Mostly a good trailor means crappy game. And a crappy trailor means good gameplay game.

Looked kinda low quality for a game coming out in 2012? The graphics style seems to be kinda similar to that of Skyrim, but I don't really like how characters look like (aesthetically). Not really an impressive trailer in my opinion.

this was my honest reaction to that game-trailer over at the tv serie thread

Quote

the rpg is a bit unconvincing, seems like they have gone with the  commercial success of the books/serie after all, without the care of  execution. nothing about that trailer excites, it solely relies on the  already established fanbase for the title, nothing more, no effort has  been put into that trailer.

i just hope the t.v. series will try to tell each important part of the  books. also to the end of the story, stopping the serie halfway the  story will make it not a serie but a very long t.v. commercial for the  books...

but truly, can't wait to see more of game of thrones on t.v.

Cyanide is very stubborn, I have to grant this for them
It has already been proven they can't handle this IP, well, lets see how this turns out

This is the best thing I've seen all week.
If this was a real game, I'd buy it.

I think he was referring to all the games that use pre-rendered cutscenes in their trailers instead of actual gameplay, so the trailer looks like this:

...when the game itself looks like this:

Personally I think not having 'fancy' CGI trailers means the game itself looks good enough to use in a trailer. :)

I'd be careful of this game considering what they did with the RTS. I was personally the most active fella on that forum, which now is entirely dead btw, and are trying to talk to the devs on the RPG forum. All they have done so far is telling me they are different teams, everyone makes mistakes and such. Actually altogether look at the RTS for all the textbook warning signs prior to release of a bad game.

I remember what a letdown the RTS was. The first trailer for the RTS showcased something seemingly revolutionary. That wasn't the case with the final product.

Although if I was a bit more cynical, I might speculate the same thing will happen to GW2.

I can't bare to even look at anything related to this game.  I love the TV series and I can't imagine any gaming system that could take that and do it any justice, so i'm staying waaaay clear of this.
