Welcome to the Legion!

Today we got some new information for the point-and-click episodic Game of Thrones video game from Telltale and it looks pretty cool. IGN had an unembeddable video preview, which you can watch here. This is the image they released, which gives us some information about the game.

The quote above is from Asha Greyjoy (Yara in the show): “Trackers and hunters sworn to Deepwood with clan names like Forrester and Woods. Branch and Bole.” We’ve never met a character from House Forrester, though we know this: They’re from the Wolfswood in the North and sworn to House Glover of Deepwood Motte and Lady Glover sends Forresters as scouts to help Stannis Baratheon travel through Wolfswood to the North. The hashtag #IronFromIce almost certainly points to a Greyjoy as they are the Ironborn.

Telltale’s CEO Dan Connors confirmed to Digital Trends at the Game Developer’s Conference in March that the game series would run concurrently with “A Song of Ice and Fire” and Game of Thrones on HBO. “I think the show provides a timeline, but the world is huge,” Connors told the site. “There’s so much going on and it’s so rich. Every decision that King Joffrey makes impacts so many people. … The show does a great job of interpreting George R.R. Martin’s work, and his work provides a huge dictionary of knowledge about what the franchise is. It’s really a dream to sit down and say, ‘What’s our space in this world? Where are we in this world?’ And the world offers you so much to explore.”

Telltale had no new information on the game for IGN though, simply saying, “We’re unable to confirm any new information about the game. Stay tuned for additional details soon.” Please, oh please let me play as Asha. Please?

  • I’m really excited for this! Telltale have made some of my favorite games in recent years. I’m hoping this will be on iOS as well, I’ve enjoyed playing The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us quite a bit on my iPad. I hope I’m not kept waiting too long for GoT 🙂
