Telltale’s ‘Game of Thrones’ video game “Iron From Ice” took us all by surprise with the announcement that HBO series stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Iwan Rheon and Natalie Dormer would lend their voices, but the fantasy video game from the makers of ‘The Walking Dead’ adaptation have even more in store. Not only will a new trailer arrive in early December, but the game itself will be available to play one day later!
Per Telltale’s latest tweets, the first ‘Game of Thrones’ video game installment “Iron From Ice” will be available for download on PC, Mac and PS4 (North America) on December 2. The following day, December 3, will see the game made available on Xbox One and 360, as well as PS4 (Europe), finally hitting iOS on December 4. Additionally, the game will also hit PS3 platforms in either territory on December 9, with Android release dates forthcoming for December.
As if all that weren’t good enough news, we’ll also get a full launch trailer hitting the web on Monday, December 1! So reads the official press release for “Iron From Ice”:
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.
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.
The game will be played 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. 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 the player needs to be mindful of. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester. Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you’re truly playing the Game of Thrones… where you win, or you die.
