Igromania.ru has kicked up a preview of Cyanide's upcoming A Game of Thrones RPG. It doesn't contain a whole lot of new information, but it's interesting to note that they compare it to Dragon Age and The Witcher 2 throughout the article. From the Google translation:

Will and combos, and unique skills for each character. For example, Morse can be used in battle and his dog with his own means to penetrate into remote places, for example, to eavesdrop on an important conversation. And Alester "has some power over the elements of fire." At the same time, according to the authors, the magic in the game, as in the book, almost not. Well, the more interesting to see how the French will cope with this contradiction.
