It’s taken what feels like an eternity, but Telltale Games has finally released the first trailer for its episodic Game of Thrones series. The title will premiere later this year on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 – there’s no word on the Vita yet – and will tell the story of House Forrester. “Caught up in the events of The War of the Five Kings, they’re placed in a precarious position, where members of the household must do everything that they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom,” community lead Laura Perusco explained on the PlayStation Blog.
The success of The Walking Dead has clearly given the company access to a lot of resources for this release. For starters, it’s convinced a number of the stars from the TV show – Peter Dinklage, Lena Heady, Natalie Dormer, and more – to reprise their roles for many of the characters. Moreover, while its trademark visual style is still very much still present here, the presentation appears much more detailed than what we’ve seen in its previous outings. Finally, the story will play out from five different points of view.
“Each is a member of House Forrester; either a direct family member, or a person in service to the House,” Perusco continued. “Scattered across Westeros and Essos, each will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction. Playing as five characters not only reflects the epic scope of Game of Thrones, but is also something that you’ll need to be mindful of as you play through the season. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester.”
