Game of Thrones is one badass show and if you remember we posted a feature around it a while back listing out reasons why it should be made into an action RPG. Now that their RTS (Real Time Strategy) take on this franchise didn’t work out too well, developer Cyanide Studio along with publisher Atlus have unveiled their next project, a Game of Thrones RPG primed for a 2012 release.

The RPG will be based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, the first book of which is the Game of Thrones and will allow players to explore the Kingdom of Westeros where they’ll be able to affect the politics that shape the realm. According to Gameinformer, combat in this game features something called the “active slowdown tactical combat engine,” that slows down combat so players can make quick, tactical decisions.

Other details are scarce but we expect more to emerge as the game nears its 2012 release date.
