Telltale’s Game of Thrones gets its first screenshots leaked
Several screenshots which supposedly belong to developer Telltale’s upcoming Game of Thrones adaptation have recently been leaked on the almighty internet. Appearing on PS4 France, these latest screens depict a few of the series’ most famous characters, such as Tyrion Lannister, his sister – Cersei – in addition to Margaery Tyrell. Said images were apparently first revealed by an Xbox Live-centric Twitter account. Check them out below.
Game of Thrones is an upcoming episodic graphic adventure based on the A Song of Ice and Fire books and television series, with a planned release starting in late 2014 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and OS X. The game is being developed by Telltale Games in partnership with Ty Corey Franck, the personal assistant of the books’ author George R. R. Martin, who works as the “story consultant.” Game of Thrones will follow a similar episodic format to other Telltalle titles – such as The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and Tales from the Borderlands – where player choices and actions have significant effects on later story elements across the six-episode arc.
The game will take place concurrently with the television series, from the end of the third season until just prior to the start of the fifth season. The story will focus on the House Forrester, a family not yet introduced in the television series, but found within the continuity of the books, appearing in A Dance With Dragons. House Forrester is found in the north of Westeros, in a fortress called Ironrath, where they control the valuable Ironwood forest. Throughout the game, the player will control one of five members of the Forresters (either a family member or servant), with decisions made by one character affecting the others, and the ultimate fate of the house. In December 2013, Telltale announced the Game of Thrones title at the 2013 Spike VGX video game awards program.
