Meet a New Westeros Family in the Full-Length Trailer For Telltale’s Game of Thrones

I will take what is mine with Mountain Dew & Doritos.


Since we first heard Telltale was going to extend George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire universe even further into video games, I’ve been dying to get my hands on a Bolton. I mean, a video game controller. Then a Bolton. Will I get my chance? Find out in the new trailer for Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series.

Episode 1 of 6: Iron From Ice, will be premiering tomorrow, December 2nd for PS4 and PC/Mac; on Wednesday December 3rd for Xbox One and Xbox 360, as well as PS4; Thursday December 4th for the iOS App Store. Tuesday December 9th will bring it to PS3 with Android-based devices getting access later this December.

Based on the award-winning HBO television drama series, 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.

Some cast members of the television series will reprise their roles in the game. While players will control five members of House Forrester in their story, the series will have them interacting with fan favorite characters throughout the season, including Tyrion Lannister performed by Peter Dinklage, Cersei Lannister performed by Lena Headey, Margaery Tyrell performed by Natalie Dormer, and Ramsay Snow performed by Iwan Rheon. Additional cast members will appear in later episodes.

The game series is based on the world, characters and events seen in HBO’s TV show, which in turn is based on George R. R. Martin’s books (A Song of Ice and Fire). The events in the game series begin towards the end of Season Three of the series, and end right before the beginning of Season Five. Players will visit familiar locations such as King’s Landing and The Wall, as well as unfamiliar locations such as Ironrath, the home of House Forrester.

Telltale says the first episode will take around two hours and fifteen minutes to play through and suggest doing it all in one go. The cost is $4.99 for the single episode or you can get a Season Pass package for all six episodes for $29.99.

Find out more on the Telltale website but for now, say hello to the members of House Forrester.

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.
