Game of Thrones: Genesis screenshots stick us with the pointy end

A new season of HBO's Game of Thrones isn't scheduled to air until 2012. That leaves anxious fans with two options: read the A Song of Ice and Fire book series upon which the TV series is based, or stare longingly at these new screenshots from the upcoming PC video game adaption.

In development by Cyanide (Blood Bowl), Game of Thrones: Genesis will take potential kingslayers through 1,000 years of Westeros' history, recounting the origin of the 'Others', historic wars and the backstory behind some of the series' most prominent families. The adaptation will include a single player campaign developed in consultation with the books' author George R.R. Martin, as well as a multiplayer campaign that will allow up to 8 players to wield both weapons and cunning backstabbery in their bid to take over the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones: Genesis is due for PCs on September 9th. Check out the E3 trailerofficial website, or the screens below to scratch your itch for blood, sex and half-men until then:

Still not satisfied? The fifth book in the series, A Dance with Dragons, is also now available.

    Meh, I love RTS games and I love the show but this game just looks sub par to me.

    I'm reading A Clash of Kings right now because I cannot wait until the spring to see what happens. So, I'll probably check this out as well. Joffrey's face must wear a pike!!
