French website Factor News has posted news of a Song of Ice and Fire RPG in the works from developer Cyanide Studios, based around A Game of Thrones – the first book.

Already hard at work on the RTS Game of Thrones: Genesis based on George R.R. Martin’s fantasy novels, the RPG contains original stories with new characters instead of focusing on the main character’s in the series.

However, the characters includes in the novels will appear in the game in some capacity.

Players will step into the shoes of a brother of the Night Watch up at the Wall, before playing as Alester Sarwyck, a Red Priest coming home after a 15 year exile.

It’s a turn-based RPG with skill trees and real-time battle.

While there’s no set release date, it is expected for consoles and PC.

Meanwhile, Genesis will be out this summer.

Thanks, Joystiq.
