Telltale released a trailer for "The Sword in the Darkness" today alongside the release date announcement, and things are looking grim for House Forrester. Their stronghold, Ironrath, is being occupied by forces from the hated House Whitehill, while a recovering Lord Rodrik Forrester tries to assert himself; eldest daughter Mira is dealing with political intrigue in King's Landing; exiled son Asher is trying to make it out of Essos; and Gared Tuttle, formerly the squire to the deceased Lord Gregor Forrester, is thinking about deserting the Night's Watch.

Oh, and Drogon, one of Daenerys Targaryen's three dragons, is thrown into the mix too.
