Telltale Games has released a trailer for “The Sword in the Darkness,” episode three of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, which drops on Tuesday, March 24, for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Mac, and Windows. It will follow on Xbox platforms March 25 and iOS/Android on March 26. The episode’s title is a line from the Night’s Watch oath, meaning we will be spending some time up at the Wall with poor, exiled Gared.
Things have taken a turn for the worse at the Forrester’s home base of Ironrath. The dastardly Whitehills have stationed an army there under the command of the brutal and unpredictable Gryff Whitehill, a fourth-born son with a chip on his shoulder. That leaves it up to the far-flung family members to save their home. Older brother Asher is still off in Essos, now seeking a mercenary army in Meereen to help take back his home. Meanwhile in King’s Landing, Mira is drawn deeper into the deadly political maneuverings of the Lannisters and her mistress, Margaery Tyrell. Far to the north, Gared is adjusting to his new life at the Wall when he learns that he must go beyond it to seek out the mysterious North Grove he learned about earlier, which is deeply connected to the Forresters’ fate.
Episode 3 will be automatically downloaded in a free update on all platforms between March 24 and 26.
