Telltale always pays its debts.
The developer revealed today that the second episode of its Game of Thrones video game is due out in early February. The first part of its six-episode arc debuted in December, and fans can return to the story of House Forrester starting Feb. 3 on PlayStation consoles and PC. Xbox systems will get it on Feb. 4. Android and iOS, meanwhile, will get it on Feb. 5. This episode will pick up where the first left out, and it will also reveal the consequences of the choices you made. Read our review for Episode One to see why we’re excited for the story to continue.
The studio released the following trailer, which imitates the “next time on Game of Thrones” that fans of the show will recognize:
Game of Thrones is a tie-in to the HBO series of the same name, which is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire books by George R. R. Martin. Unlike the show and books, however, the game follows the story of a side family and not the Starks or Lannisters.
This enables Telltale to explore other parts of the world while existing in the same universe as the show. It is also a can’t-miss experience for anyone who considers themselves a fan of the show.
The six episodes of Telltale’s Game of Thrones should take it right up to the debut episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones season five, which is scheduled to premiere April 8.
We’ll have a review of Episode Two of Game of Thrones as soon as possible.
