First details on ‘Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series’ announced

Based on HBO’s award-winning television drama, Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series tells the story of House Forrester. Caught up in the events of The War of the Five Kings, they are placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.

The game series is based around the world, characters and events seen in HBO’s hit show, which in turn is based on the George R. R. Martin’s books. The events in the game take place towards the end of season three of the TV show, and end right before the beginning of season five.

House Forrester is a noble house from the Wolfswood in the north of Westeros. Bannermen to House Glover, they have always offered unswerving loyalty to the ruling great house of the North – the Starks. The Forresters are seated at Ironrath, an imposing stronghold surrounded by towering ironwood trees. Built over fifteen hundred years ago by Cedric Forrester and his triplet sons, Ironrath is a testament to the strength and endurance of Ironwood. The Forrester house words are ‘Iron from Ice’, which echoes their belief that – like the ironwood itself – the adverse conditions and unforgiving landscape of the North only makes them stronger.

Ironrath sits on the edge of the largest ironwood forest in Westeros, which has proven to be a strategic advantage for the House. The trees are a valuable commodity; many of the best weapons, ships, and defensive structures include the use of ironwood. House Forrester controls the majority of the ironwood forests in the Wolfswood, much to the chagrin of their bitter rivals, House Whitehill.

It is worth noting that The Forrester’s have not appeared in the TV show, they are canon to the world created by George R. R. Martin, having appeared in the book ‘A Dance with Dragons’.

You will play from five different points of view, each character you play as being a member of the House of Forrester. Players should bare in mind that actions by one member of the House can cause a ripple effect towards the rest, meaning that anything can change during the course of the game.

The first of six episodes will be available to download soon on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, with additional platforms to be announced.
