Set during The War of the Five Kings (an event that Game of Thrones fans will be well familiar with), Telltale’s Game of Thrones sets you in the middle of the conflict as the House Forrester when they find themselves “placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.” It’s worth noting that while the House Forrester has not made an appearance on HBO’s Game of Thrones, they are a cannon group of characters, having appeared in George R.R. Martin’s book A Dance With Dragons.
The House Forrester is a noble house that resides in the north of Westeros, and holds allegiance to the North (The Stark Family). It was originally announced that you would be playing as various family members of the House Forrester, Telltale has clarified that you will be playing a mix of family members and house servants, and that “each character will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction.”
The events of Telltale’s Game of Thrones begins towards the end of season three of the Game of Thrones televisions series. The game will feature familiar locations to GoT fans such as King’s Landing and The Wall, while also featuring new locales including House Forrester’s home Ironrath.
The first episode of Telltale’s Game of Thrones is titled Iron From Ice, and will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and iOs. No release date has been set, but Telltale has promised the first episode will be released before the end of the year.
The closer it gets, the more I get excited for Telltale’s GoT. I am a huge fan of both Game of Throne’s and Telltale Game’s. This will be a real year end treat for gamers. Telltale’s masterful storytelling abilities coupled with GoT’s rich world war, politics, and moral grays is a match made in heaven. For me, winter cannot come soon enough.
