Game of Thrones, the action RPG based on the popular telly series, will be released "early June" on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, distributor Koch Media has announced.

George R.R. Martin, the author whose A Song of Fire and Ice novels A Game of Thrones is based upon, had "creative input" on story, which is new, which is promising.
