"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground." - Cersei Lannister
Much like last month's first episode of Tales from the Borderlands, the first installment of Telltale's six part Game of Thrones series quietly launched today. The story follows members of House Forrester, a noble family that has fallen into a precarious position during the War of the Five Kings. In terms of continuity with the HBO show, the game takes place roughly around the end of Season Three and continues until the beginning of Season Five.
The press release also notes that several actors will be reprising their roles from the show for the game, including Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Natalie Dormer, and Iwan Rheon. Telltale hints that additional cast members could be appearing in later episodes.
Iron from Ice is available now for PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4. It will be releasing on Xbox One and Xbox 360 this Wednesday. This Thursday the iOS version will make its way to the App Store, while an Android version will become available sometime later this month.
