Game of Thrones: Episode 1 from Telltale is the first game in a 6-part episodic adventure game series based on George R.R. Martin's bestselling high fantasy novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, released on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows on December 2, 2014. HBO's American television series adaptation will be used as visual reference for the characters and setting. Telltale's game series will feature an all-new story surrounding House Forrester, a noble family from the wolfswood in the North and loyal to Stark.
Episode One introduces players to House Forrester and its seat in Ironrath, allowing them to experience events of the War of the Five Kings unfolding from five of its members. Like other Telltale episodic games, decisions which players make as one character may have an effect on others both during the current episode and possibly in future ones. Players will interact with characters straight from the HBO adaptation of Game of Thrones including Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) portraying themselves in the game, complete with voice acting.
The game takes place concurrently with the television series, with the events taking place from the end of the third season from the events that transpired at the Red Wedding to the beginning of the fifth season due to air in 2015. It follows a house not mentioned in the television series, House Forrester, but who have been mentioned sparingly in the novels, namely in A Dance with Dragons.
