New, 13 comments

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, hits next month, according to the game's listing on Steam.

Reached for comment today, a Telltale official had this to say:

"We're anticipating an early December premiere for the first episode of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series. Standby @telltalegames on twitter for an announcement expected very soon."

The game takes place towards the end of season three of the HBO show and right before the beginning of season five and will explore House Forrester, a noble house from the Wolfswood in the north of Westeros. Bannermen to House Glover, they have always been loyal to the Starks.

Players will work their way through the game from five different points of view, each either as a family member of House Forrester or a person in service to the house. Each of these characters, who will be located across Westeros, will be working to try and save House Forrester from destruction during the War of the Five Kings.

While players will control five members of House Forrester in the story, the series will have them interacting with fan favorite characters throughout the season, including Tyrion Lannister performed by Peter Dinklage, Cersei Lannister performed by Lena Headey, Margaery Tyrell performed by Natalie Dormer, and Ramsay Snow performed by Iwan Rheon. Additional cast members will appear in later episodes.

Check out the first video of the game here.
