Choice is everything in episodic titles from Telltale Games like Game of Thrones. Players make decisions in conversation trees and during action sequences that affect how the remainder of a season will play out. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to work.
But for some players of Game of Thrones Episode 2: The Lost Lords, in-game choices aren’t amounting to much. Some copies of The Lost Lords for Xbox One are plagued by an issue preventing players’ choice data from migrating across episodes.
“We are aware of an issue with the Xbox One version of Game of Thrones – Episode 2: The Lost Lords, where customers’ choice data may not carry over correctly from Episode 1,” Telltale wrote on its forums. “We are working to determine the cause and will update here as soon as we have more information to share. We appreciate your patience and want to get you playing with your choices intact as soon as possible.”
That forum post was made on February 4 when the game was released. Today, Telltale posted an update explaining that it had submitted a patch it believes will resolve the issue to Microsoft for certification. The studio estimates this patch will be available within the next seven to 10 days.
Did you like Episode 1 of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series? Can’t wait for Episode 2? Well, you won’t have to wait for much longer.
Episode 2: …
Winter may be coming, but the next episode of Telltale’s Game of Thrones is going to arrive sooner. Episode 2: The Lost Lords will continue the story of House Forrester, a household caught in the middle of the War of the Five Kings. Telltale released a first look at the episode, and while it doesn’t give away much it seems players can at least count on visiting The Wall. The Lost Lords launches February 4 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One for $4.99, and is available as part of the season pass. Check out the first look trailer after the jump.
