Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones episodic adventure rolls out to its various platforms starting this week. To mark the occasion, the developer has shared a launch trailer for the first episode, called Iron from Ice, which are also the house words of the series’ protagonists, House Forrester. The episode goes out on December 2 for Mac, PlayStation 4 (in America), and Windows; December 3 for PlayStation 4 (in Europe), Xbox 360, and Xbox One; December 4 for iOS; December 9 for PlayStation 3; and a later, as-yet-unannounced date in December for Android.
The trailer provides more context than we have yet seen about the Forrester’s saga. Margaery Tyrell (voiced by series actor Natalie Dormer) pleads with Cersei Lannister on behalf of the Forresters, who fear for their safety if the Boltons are given control of the north, because of bad blood between the Forresters and some of the Bolton’s bannermen. Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) also offers a bit of pithy advice. The rest of the trailer features a growing sense of doom, a bit of swordplay, and a glimpse of creepy Ramsay Bolton doing what he does best: being creepy.
Just like we started doing with Telltale’s Tales from the Borderlands series that began recently, we will be writing up recaps for each episode as it comes out, saving a review until the entire season has wrapped. See you in Westeros!
