Your first look at the forthcoming episodic PS3/PS4 adventure in action


This trailer is one we've been absolutely dying to share for a while now! If you’ve been keeping up with the latest, you’ll already know that Telltale's upcoming Game of Thrones series is based on the award-winning HBO television drama, and tells the story of House Forrester. Caught up in the events of The War of the Five Kings, they’re placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.

Today we can announce that some cast members of the television series will reprise their roles in the game. While you’ll get to control five members of House Forrester in your story, the series will have you interacting with characters you already know and love (or hate) throughout the season, including Tyrion Lannister performed by Peter Dinklage, Cersei Lannister performed by Lena Heady, Margaery Tyrell performed by Natalie Dormer, and Ramsay Snow performed by Iwan Rheon. Additional cast members will appear in later episodes… as for who and when? That would spoil the surprise!

House Forrester is a noble house from the Wolfswood in the north of Westeros. Bannermen to House Glover, they have always offered unswerving loyalty to the ruling great house of the North – the Starks. The Forresters are seated at Ironrath, an imposing stronghold surrounded by towering ironwood trees. Built over fifteen hundred years ago by Cedric Forrester and his triplet sons, Ironrath is a testament to the strength and endurance of Ironwood. The Forrester house words are 'Iron from Ice', which echoes their belief that – like the ironwood itself – the adverse conditions and unforgiving landscape of the North only makes them stronger.

The game will be played from five different points of view. Each is a member of House Forrester; either a direct family member, or a person in service to the House. Scattered across Westeros and Essos, each will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction.

Playing as five characters not only reflects the epic scope of Game of Thrones, but is also something that you’ll need to be mindful of as you play through the season. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester. Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you’re truly playing the Game of Thrones… where you win, or you die.

‘Iron from Ice’, the first of six episodes, will be arriving for download soon on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3… until then, thanks for reading, and let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Whats with the priicing?!? Seems to be a real disparity between platforms too, with the Xbone being £6 cheaper too. Causing quite a furore on the Sony forums.....

Hold off buying peeps. Lets force the issue with our wallets.

Well I downloaded this today and I have to say it's pretty bloody good. I have never played this type of gameplay before so can't compare to anything else. The only downfall is when choosing a response; you only have about 10 seconds to decide.
Sorry lads no boobies....yet, though loads of swearing even dropping of the C bomb.
If you're into G.O.T I reckon you'll like this.

Sony cuts price of Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands on PS4
Will refund the difference.

Sony has cut its prices for Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands on PlayStation 4 after last week's outcry.

Last week, Eurogamer reported that the Telltale games were more expensive on PlayStation 4 than they were on Xbox One.

Following that, eagle-eyed Eurogamer readers noticed the prices of both games had been reduced on the quiet.

The Game of Thrones Season 1 Season Pass is now £19.99 on PS4. It had been £24.99. The Tales from the Borderlands Season Pass is now £15.99. It had been £18.99.

Interestingly, on PS4 the price of episode one of both Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands has been reduced from £4.99 to £3.99 - price-matching them with their individual costs on Xbox One.

The pricing of the Game of Thrones season pass on Xbox One remains £15.99. On Xbox One the season pass only includes episodes 2-6, whereas on PS4 the season pass includes all six episodes, so the entire set is now one pence more expensive on PS4. That seems reasonable to us.

The Tales from the Borderlands season pass remains £11.99 on Xbox One.

Sony has told Eurogamer that all customers who purchased the title prior to the lower prices going live will have the difference credited back to their account by the end of next week.

Both Sony and Telltale are yet to comment on the original price discrepancy between the Xbox One and PS4 versions. However, publisher Ubisoft commented on a similar issue last year in an interview with Eurogamer.

Speaking of price differences of its PS4 and Xbox One launch games on the digital stores, Ubisoft told Eurogamer this was down to Sony and Microsoft offering different "pricing matrices" for games sold on their digital stores.

“Both Microsoft and Sony provide pricing matrices for games sold digitally via their respective services, similar to the way tiered wholesale pricing works on Apple's iTunes. Developers, including Ubisoft, then select a wholesale price within those tiers that best corresponds to our expectations of the games' overall value and market potential.

"However, the final retail prices are determined by the vendor. Also, because those two matrices are not identical the resulting prices on the two online services don't always align. We're aware this is potentially confusing for customers and are looking into what can be done.”

We suspect last week's issue with Telltale's games was the result of a similar difference in tiers that resulted in different wholesale prices across both platforms, which had the knock-on effect of a difference in the final prices on the PlayStation Store and the Xbox Store.
