Winter is coming, and so is a new video game based on "Game of Thrones." Not at the same time, though. At Spike TV's VGX 2013 award show, Telltale Games has announced that it's going to release a game based on HBO's wildly popular "Game of Thrones" TV series in 2014, thereby officially confirming a rumor from a couple of weeks back. Check out the game's teaser trailer, which is actually more like an announcement trailer, below: If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Telltale is the studio behind the acclaimed Walking Dead: The Game and the just-released The Wolf Among Us, both of which are also based on material with a huge following. And it's going to give the upcoming Game of Thrones game an episodic adventure treatment similar to what it has applied to those two games.
We're just really getting into it right now and thinking about the right characters, and who has the most at stake, and who has the most to do, and who has the biggest impact on the world ... 'Cause, you know, we're so much about consequence, and "Game of Thrones" is so much about big consequence.As mentioned, Telltale's Game of Thrones game is scheduled to be launched in 2014. As with Walking Dead: The Game and The Wolf Among Us, it's expected to be released on iOS as well as other popular gaming platforms.
