Hot off the heels of Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale Games has launched the premier of their highly anticipated Game of Thrones series. The first episode, Iron from Ice, is out now on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The episode costs $4.99, and you can upgrade to the season pass for $19.99.
Game of Thrones is a six-episode series based on the HBO show of the same name. The story will start around the end of season three, and end before the start of season 5. Characters from the show will appear in the game, played by their respective actors, but the main story will follow brand new characters. The game’s five playable characters are members of House Forrester, a noble house of the North whom are loyal to the Starks. The family is scattered across the lands of Westeros and Essos, taking players to new and familiar locations. The focus of the game is tough choices, as all five characters will have a part in saving House Forrester from a grim fate.

If these leaked screenshots are to be believed, we may very well have our first look at Telltale’s upcoming Game of Thrones series. The screens, first discovered by @lifelower, do have that certain Telltale style, so we’re inclined to believe they’re legit (or just really good fakes). While the game is going to focus on the little-known House Forrester, it appears that its members will cross paths with some familiar faces from the show.
Telltale recently revealed the first details of the series, which will span six episodes and follow five playable characters. Game of Thrones is coming later this year, but not before Telltale’s other upcoming series Tales from the Borderlands.
