Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series arrives on iOS, reminds us that winter is coming
Valar Morghulis, iOS gamers! You now have the chance to experience Game of Thrones' world of Westeros from a quite different perspective - apart from reading the eponymous books and watching HBO's acclaimed show, you can now immerse in a mobile game centered around George R. R. Martin's works and developed by one of the notable game developers of late, Telltale Games. Their newest title, Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series, has just hit the App Store and is available for all iOS devices that run iOS 7 or newer.
Similar The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead (Telltale's other noteworthy titles), Game of Thrones is an interactive graphic adventure that consists of six episodes and allows you to play as five different characters. Currently, only the first one - Iron From Ice - is available; the others will be released shortly after. All of these are members of House Forrester - a "noble house" from the north, which is loyal to House Stark of Winterfell. The seat of House Forrester is Ironrath, a hardly-accessible fortress deep in the northern woods. Each of your actions and the choices you make in the game will affect the future and will shape the plot around your timely decisions.
You'll be able to visit some notable Westerosi locations - King's Landing and The Wall in the North, among others. You'll also meet and interact with several of the main protagonists of the famed series - Tyrion "the Imp" Lannister (the character we're all rooting for), his power-hungry sister, Cersei, their brother Jaime the Kingslayer, Margaery Tyrell, and others.
Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series and its first episode, Iron From Ice, will set you back $4.99. Similar to the previous Telltale Games' titles, each upcoming installment will cost $4.99 as well, yet have in mind that you can purchase a season pass and get all of the six episodes for a reduced price. The season pass is currently 15% off. Unfortunately, there's no word on when it will hit Android, mind you.
