In their quest to leave their mark on every facet of nerd culture, Telltale Games is about to release their six-part episodic series set in Westeros. True to George R.R. Martin's storytelling, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series will have you play as five different characters to shape the overall story of the game. All five characters will be related to House Forrester, a northern family that's stoutly loyal to house Stark.
Telltales' game will be based on the world built in HBO's version of the story, and the events of the game will take place near the end of season three, and end before season five starts. Some of the actors from the TV show will be reprising their roles for the game. In Episode 1: "Iron from Ice" we'll see: Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Lena Heady as Cersei Baratheon, Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell, and Iwan Rheon as Ramsay Snow, with more to come further on in the series.
Telltale's Game of Thrones' official release date and prices haven't been released yet, but it will be available for download on PC, Mac, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and iOS, with more platforms to come in the future.
