‘Game of Thrones’ Telltale Video Game Trailer: “Iron From Ice” Confirms TV Cast
We’ve known for some time that Telltale Games would mount their take on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ complimenting their acclaimed adaptations of ‘The Walking Dead‘ comics and even ‘Back to the Future,’ and at last the first trailer for “Iron From Ice” has arrived, with a twist. Not only does Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) herself narrate, but so too will Peter Dinklage and more from the ‘Game of Thrones’ cast reprise their roles!
Telling the tale (see what we did there?) of House Forrester, the new ‘Game of Thrones’ video game trailer shows off some impressively-rendered locations and character models from the HBO series, including Tyrion Lannister, Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and even Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon). We don’t yet know when Telltale will debut the series’ first chapter “Iron from Ice,” but the official press release confirms returning TV cast, and gives us a glimpse of the story:
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.
Today we can announce that some cast members of the series will reprise their roles in the game. While players will control five members of House Forrester in their story, the series will have them interacting with fan favorite characters throughout the season, including Tyrion Lannister performed by Peter Dinklage, Cersei Lannister performed by Lena Heady, Margaery Tyrell performed by Natalie Dormer, and Ramsay Snow performed by Iwan Rheon. Additional cast members will appear in later episodes.
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.
