Telltale, possibly best known these days for the episodic game series for the TV show The Walking Dead, are working on one for Game of Thrones, the HBO series bases on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series. Well, you probably knew that, because, well, it’s Game of Thrones.
The teaser shows some of the characters from the series, namely Cersei and Tyrion Lannister, Margery Tyrell, and Ramsay Snow, as well as introduces you to House Forrester. In the six episode series, you’ll play as five members of House Forrester, putting you in the middle of the War of the Five Kings, taking place between Season 3 until the beginning of Season 5. Those familiar with Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire know how brutal it can be, and that every decision matters. The same is true for the game series, carried over 5 characters, each having an affect on each other, so choose wisely, or pay with your life.
So far only Crusader Kings 2, or more so, its Game of Thrones mod, has been able to accurately replicate the world George created, so I’m looking forward to see if Telltale can do it justice.
