A Game of Thrones: Genesis is PC exclusive

RTS tie-in set centuries before the books.

Forthcoming fantasy tie-in A Game of Thrones: Genesis is a PC exclusive, developer Cyanide Entertainment has announced.

According to a PC Gamer interview with designer Regis Robin, the forthcoming RTS will be set centuries before the events of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books from which it takes its cue.

Robin explained that the game will "allow the player to be part of many of the background events in the history of the Seven Kingdoms. It is broken down into chapters running from about 700 years before Aegon's Landing and going right up to events within the books.

"This might sound pretentious, but we believe that A Game of Thrones: Genesis is like no other RTS," he added. "Obviously, we've adapted some of the RTS codes, but gameplay is totally different.

"It's a bit like the books in a way. They really are like no other reading experience."

The game is scheduled for release in September, with Ubisoft handling publishing duties.
