The next episode in the acclaimed episodic video game series Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series will be officially revealed today. The episode, titled “The Lost Lords,” will continue the tale of House Forrester, a lesser house in George R.R. Martin’s epic saga.
Via a blog post (and subsequent posting on social media), game developer Telltale Games released a teaser image for the next part in the Game of Thrones video game series. “The Lost Lords” seem to take the player out of the bleak north of Westeros and into the lands across the Narrow Sea. Other locations within the Game of Thrones world that have been realized in game are King’s Landing, The Wall, and the Twins.
Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series is made with a partnership with HBO, which gives the world the same look and feel of the hit TV show. Also, to complement the game, many of the cast members of Game of Thrones on HBO reprise their roles, including Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Natalie Dormer as Margery Tyrell, and Lena Headey as the always cunning Cersei Lannister.
Critics were very welcoming of Telltale’s iteration of Game of Thrones as the latest episodic adventure from the California-based studio was met with almost universal praise. Most of the reviewers were marveling at how well the game developers were able to keep you engaged as well as provide that satisfying “twist” at the end. True to form, Telltale also delivered a game where your choices influence those around you. In fact, your choices matter so much that it caused Leif Johnson from PCGamer to be left “gaping at the screen as the credits rolled, horrified by how royally I’d fouled up everyone’s lives.”
Within Telltale’s Game of Thrones, you play as one of many characters, with the POV (point-of-view) shifting every so often. You take the role as either a noble of House Forrester or as a character in service to the family. The game really feels like you are watching one of episodes of the show, oftentimes immersing the player in the political intrigue that has made the series so spectacular.
And if you’re a fan of the show, fear not! Winter is coming soon, as previously reported by the Inquisitr. With Telltale’s Game of Thrones taking place between the end of Season 3 to the beginning of Season 5, it’s a great way to immerse yourself in Martin’s Thrones universe. Make sure to keep an eye out for the teaser trailer, as it should hit about 10 a.m. PST/1 pm EST, according to the developer.
Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series is available for download on PC/MAC, Xbox One/360, PS4/PS3, iOS, Android, and Amazon devices. Episode One is available now for download.
