"The Ice Dragon," the sixth and final episode of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, will be released Nov. 17, Telltale Games announced today.

The episode will be available digitally that day on Android, iOS, Mac, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. According to Telltale, this will be the first time in the studio's history that a finale will be released simultaneously on all platforms worldwide.

On Nov. 17, Telltale will also release the entire season of Game of Thrones in a disc-based collection for $29.99. That package will be available globally on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and in Europe, it will also launch on PC.

"The epic conclusion to the season is the most ambitious and diversely presented episode we've ever produced," said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games, in a press release today.

Episode Six will arrive more than 11 months after the season premiere, "Iron From Ice," which debuted in early December 2014. Over that span, Telltale has also released entries in two other episodic series, Tales from the Borderlands and Minecraft: Story Mode. Telltale's seasons usually last for five episodes; Game of Thrones is the first one to run for six episodes in the studio's post-Walking Dead era.

Telltale also announced today that "Iron From Ice" is now available for free on consoles and mobile devices: Android, iOS, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Telltale's Game of Thrones is based on the HBO television series of the same name, and multiple actors from the show reprise their roles in the game. For more on Telltale's project, you can watch the video above, in which three of the actors — Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) and Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Snow) — discuss what makes the game special.
