Telltale Games has finally revealed the first full details about its upcoming series Game of Thrones.


Players will take the role of five different characters, all members of House Forrester. In true Telltale fashon, each character’s actions will affect the other four, and the fate of all off House Forrester. While it doesn’t appear in HBO’s series, House Forrester is mentioned in George R. R. Martin’s novels, particularly in the fifth book A Dance with Dragons.

Telltale’s series takes place between the end of the third season and the beginning of the fifth season of the TV show, during The War of the Five Kings. It will feature familiar places in both Westeros and Essos, such as King’s Landing and The Wall.

“House Forrester is a noble house from the Wolfswood in the north of Westeros,” reads Telltale’s full announcement. “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.

“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.”

Iron from Ice is also the title of the series’ first episode, scheduled to release “soon” on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and iOS.
