Game Of Thrones Adventure Series Coming Next Month; Windows, Mac OS X Requirements

The Game of Thrones gaming series is coming to PCs and consoles next month. The new title by Telltale Games, the developers of the award-winning The Walking Dead game series, is listed on the Steam product page along with the pricing and PC requirements.

Telltale released the first trailer of the Game of Thrones series last week, which confirmed several details about the upcoming game.

The Game Play

The first series of the Game of Thrones will consist of six episodes. The game-play will run from the end of season three of the HBO TV show to just before the beginning of season five. The game will resemble the TV show in several instances. It allows players to visit locations familiar to the fans such as King's Landing and The Wall. To add more spice to the game, Telltale said some new elements will be taken from the books that haven't appeared on the television series yet.

Players will select their characters and control five members of the House of Forrester in the story. Players will be tasked to try and save the House during the War of the Five Kings. The five Forresters featured are 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 members will be added in later episodes, according to the publisher.
