'Game of Thrones' RPG Coming In 2012

Now you'll get to kill off all of your favorite characters yourself! A new action-RPG based on George R.R. Martin's hit fantasy series, starting with "Game of Thrones," is hitting PC and next generation consoles in early 2012. French developers Cyanide Studios have posted a couple of screen shots to their blog.

From the look of the grabs, the video game will pull more directly from Martin's books instead of the HBO series, so unfortunately, you won't have the pleasure of seeing an Eddard Stark that looks like Sean Bean. What you will recognize is the snowy landscape and dirty looking brutes. Cyanide put out their first "Game of Thrones" game this fall, a strategy game called "Game of Thrones: Genesis."
