After tantalizing fans with several short, cryptic teasers, Telltale Games and HBO have finally released the first trailer for their upcoming title Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series.
Based in the world of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books and HBO’s television series Game of Thrones; the game will tell the story of House Forrester, a lesser house in the North, and loyal bannermen of the Starks. The story takes place during The War of Five Kings, where the members of House Forrester find themselves in a precarious position, and must do what they can to prevent the destruction of their house.
Much like in George R.R. Martin’s books, players will play through the story of the Forresters from the perspective of five different characters- each connected to the Forrester house in some way. These different characters will take players to places both familiar, like King’s Landing, The Wall, and Essos, and new, like the Forrester’s home of Ironrath. Staying true to Telltale’s decision-based gameplay style, expect the decisions you make with each character to have rippling effects on the others.
As an added surprise, players can expect to run into several iconic GoT characters, like Tyrion and Cersei Lannister, Margaery Tyrell, and Ramsay Snow, all voiced by their actors on the show with additional cast members to appear in later episodes.
No official release date for the premiere episode has yet been announced, but expect more sweet, intriguey details to follow.
