Telltale Games, the creators behind the successful “The Walking Dead” and “The Wolf Among Us” video games, have finally revealed new information about their upcoming game title based on the HBO TV series “Game of Thrones”.
TelltaleGames.com says the six-episode game will focus on House Forrester, a house that appeared in George R. R. Martin’s fifth novel “A Dance with Dragons” but has yet to make an appearance on the TV series.
For 1,500 years the Forresters have lived in Ironrath, a stronghold at the edge of northern Westeros’ largest ironwood forest Wolfswood – a valuable resource that also makes them a target. Players will be able to control five different characters spread throughout Westeros and Essos.
Some are members of the Forresters family, others are servants but all play a role in deciding the house’s fate. As with their previous games, player’s choices will have a big impact on the story.
Events in the game will begin around the end of the show’s third season and conclude right before events that kick off the fifth season which goes to air on HBO starting April next year. The first episode, “Iron From Ice,” is aiming to launch by the end of 2014 on PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and iOS.
