Telltale Sets Up Game of Thrones Story


After months of teaser images on Twitter, Telltale Games have finally opened up on what to expect from their 6 episode Game of Thrones game. Telltale’s Game of Thrones will follow the House Forrester, a family that has not appeared in the TV series, but are from the books. The Forrester family are located in the North and are loyal bannerman to the Starks and the game’s story will take place after the events of season 3 and wrap up around the start of season 5 of the television series. For watchers of the show this should tell you a lot about what to expect in the beginning.

Here is Telltale’s description 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.

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.”

Telltale’s Game of Thrones is promised to start before the end of the year with the first episode entitled “Iron from Ice” for the PS3, PS4, PC/MAC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, iOS, and Android.
