A Game of Throne fans will soon have upwards of 3 new how one can play George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book epic. Based on reports, the series is currently being adapted into an RPG for consoles, a free-to-play MMO for browsers, and a social networking game for release in 2012.

Cyanide Studio, developers of the recently released Game of Thrones: Genesis strategy title for the computer, may be healming the role-playing project. Martin himself is asserted to be hands-on with the sport, that may tell a brand new chapter in Westeros’s history and star, amongst others, a Red priest and a member of the Night’s Watch. The unnamed project may be published for PS3, Xbox and PC care of Atlus.

For Thronites (Throneese? Throneheads?) preferring to play their videogames with friends, Bigpoint Games, maker of Battlestar Galactica Online, is developing a no-charge browser-based MMO in accordance with the sport of Thrones world. Before anyone gets too upset in regards to the browser-based-ness of this MMO they must have a look at some videos of Battlestar Galactica Online – Bigpoint could make browsers sing. The third game will let players kill for the Iron Throne in a social networking game, however no developer or platform has yet been attached to this actual title (though it certainly seems like it’ll be tied to Facebook).

The Song of Ice and Fire series has had a devout following for years, but it’s fair to mention the sport of Thrones HBO show has helped it achieve mainstream popularity. Reflecting at the pressure this has wear him to wrap up the book series, Martin told USA Today, “[I’m] facing many more years of writing. Hopefully i’m able to stay prior to the HBO series… That creates a certain quantity of pressure, having a freight train arising behind me. Right away it’s long ago, but it’s moving faster than i’m.”

There’s no release date given for any of the games, but there’s one for the second one season of the HBO show: Game of Thrones season 2 begins April 2012, so prepare. Winter, we’ve heard, is coming.
