Telltale’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Has Officially Released + Review

Granted, the game has been out for at least a week now but I really wanted to play the game before delving into anything further about it. With that being said, if you haven’t already, check out the official launch trailer below:

A day after this trailer was released, the game was also released. The first episode is $5 or you can buy the entire ‘season pass’ for about $30. I went ahead and bought the season pass for my computer for about $25 through the official Telltale website. The season pass really just means that you have went ahead and bought all six episodes so when the new episode comes out, you can go ahead and download it. Quite simple.

Now, let’s get into it, shall we? From the trailer we caught more glimpses of some of our familiar characters from the show in all of their glory. But, we have also been inclined to meet some of our new characters that we will grow attached to as the story progresses. I’m not kidding either, after one episode, I’m immensely attached to a few of the characters.

This game really does have it all, in my opinion. Every decision you make immensely impacts how other characters respond to you and the story as a whole. Granted, from watching the show, we all may think it would be easy to full answer questions and invoke punishment on people who wrong us but, believe me, it’s a lot more difficult than it seems. In the first episode, you wonder if you punished people the right way and you worry about whether or not your answers will get you kicked out of King’s Landing if you don’t please Cersei. It really is a pulse-pounding game and it leaves you wanting more.

Telltale says the game can be completed in about 2 hours, tops. So, relatively, it is not a long game. I would say this is about right. I was rather upset when it ended because not only did I want to play more but it left on a cliffhanger ending…typical Game of Thrones style, if you ask me.

Telltale also says that each episode should be available every 4-6 weeks so I have a while before the next episode but this gives you, if you haven’t already played, more than enough time to get yourself the game and play. It really is worth it!

Telltale’s ‘Game of Thrones: Episode 1-Iron from Ice’ is simple, easy to play, and has a great story that has so much potential! So, get yourselves the game! I promise, you will NOT regret it! 🙂


Other ‘Game of Thrones’ Actors to Lend their Voices for Telltale’s Game Series

With the likes of Peter Dinklage, Natalie Dormer, Lena Headey, and Iwan Rheon who have already joined for the first episode of the series, it seems that a few more have also joined to be a part of the phenomenon.

According to TIME:

EW has confirmed that Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke will be joining the ranks of their fellow cast members and appearing as Jon and Dany in future episodes of the video game series. Telltale hasn’t revealed exactly when these characters will show up, but expect Harrington and Clarke to lend their voices sometime during the game’s next five episodes.

Well, I love this! More characters we are familiar with will be joining! In the first episode, we have Tyrion, Cersei, Margaery, and Ramsay and before the end of the series, it now seems we will also have Jon and Dany! This is great! Wonder who else we may get before the end of the series….any ideas?

Telltale Releases ‘Game of Thrones’ Teaser

Now, this looks amazing! I cannot wait! Also, Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), and Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton) will be adding the voices for the characters. These are the only four confirmed at this time, however.

Telltale has also released a description of Ser Royland Degore who is Ironrath’s Master-at-Arms.

The Verge reveals:

Royland Degore joined Lord Forrester’s army after his family was wiped out by Ironborn during Balon Greyjoy’s rebellion. Degore had a natural grasp of military tactics and strategy and came to play a crucial role in the siege of Pyke that ended the war. In the months that followed, King Robert awarded Royland  a knighthood and Lord Forrester asked him to serve as Ironrath’s Master-at-Arms. Ser Royland still holds the position and is known for his military expertise…as well as his legendary temper.

Ser Royland is one of the five different characters you can control in the upcoming game. Now, these characters will also be surrounded by a number of familiar faces as well. There is still no set release date but ‘Iron from Ice’ will be launched on a number of platforms including PC, Mac, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and iOS.

Plot Revealed for Telltale’s ‘Game of Thrones’

With the anticipation for season 5, fans now have a game to bide their time until the April premiere. It has been noted that fans will be playing characters from House Forrester, which is a lesser known Northern house with allegiance to the Starks….or lack thereof now :/

However, with this being said, Telltale has released a tad bit more information regarding the game and what kinds of characters you will be playing.

CNET explains:

Players will assume the role of five different members of House Forrester, including both family members and people in service to the house.

The events in Telltale’s ‘Game of Thrones’ begin near the end of season 3 of the HBO series, and end right before the beginning of season 5. Players will find themselves in various familiar locations such as King’s Landing and The Wall, as well as unknown locations like Ironrath, the home of House Forrester.

Okay, so it’s not a lot of information but it’s enough to keep us guessing on everything we will be doing in the game. I think this sounds fascinating and I cannot wait. Telltale still has not released a date for the game yet, all they are saying is ‘soon’. Okay, fine, I’ll deal with that…for now. However, knowing that I will be traveling to King’s Landing makes me so happy! It will be amazing to experience the corruption of the city during gameplay…maybe even a little terrifying.

The first episode out of six will be available soon on PC, Mac, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and iOS, with additional platforms to be announced later….most likely android market. However, no details on pricing has been given at this point but if you expect to play all six episodes, CNET expects consumers to pay about $25-$30. Not too bad considering most games go for $50-$60 upon release.

So, who’s excited?! I’m excited! I’ll definitely pre-order….anyone else?

Telltale Games Releases New Information!


Telltale Games has officially released some new information! First, there will be a total of six episodes and they have started releasing little by little information on the first. Let’s break it down, shall we?

According to Watchers on the Wall:

The first episode is entitled ‘Iron from Ice’ and IGN reported that the game series is centered on a single house which we now know is House Forrester.


Further, they concluded:

House Forrester located in the North in the Wolfswood is sworn to House Glover of Deepwood Motte. The House is apparently canon appearing in ‘A Dance with Dragons’.

Telltale has also released that there will be five playable characters. It’s still unknown whether that means just the first episode or all six as a total. Also, they want to play on the aspect of decision making and the consequences of your choices in the game. Basically, whichever choice you make will effect the other members of your House. How exciting?!

Well, now this interesting, isn’t it? Telltale still has not announced a release date yet but the game is still expected to arrive by the end of the year so that only leaves a matter of time.

So, who’s excited? I’m interested to learn about another house but it would have also been kind of cool to portray a House that is already relevant on the show and change canon around a bit….what do you guys think? I don’t know, maybe that’s just me.
