Atlus announced that its A Game of Thrones RPG based on the popular book and HBO TV series will release May 15 on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. It's being developed by Cyanide Studio, which also developed A Game of Thrones: Genesis.

To accompany the release news, a new story trailer highlights the town of Riverspring, and the contentious leadership issues that came up after the death of Lord Sarwyck. Alester Sarwyck, one of the game's two main characters, returns to Riverspring as the town is mourning his father, and he's forced to consider claiming rule over the town. You can see more detail, along with a look at the game in action, in the trailer below.

The game's release puts it about a month after season two of the HBO show begins airing, which we can't imagine was an accident. Let's hear it for synergy, everyone.

      This is what happens when you sign away your IP without oversight. The RTS these dudes did was the shittiest game ever. This looks to be no different.

      Wow, that was truly boring. If it didn't have the GoT label on it, I would have never given it a second thought. Probably won't anyway.

      I had to watch that three times because I literally zoned out in the middle twice.
