During the VGX awards this past weekend, Telltale Games revealed two brand new episodic game series. One announcement confirmed a rumor, while another is a bit of a surprise.
Telltale revealed it is in fact working on a Game of Thrones series in partnership with HBO. The game will take its inspiration from the television series, which is based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series. Players will be thrown into the action and politics of Westeros, having the power to make choices that will impact the narrative.
Telltale also announced that it will be collaborating with Gearbox Software to make Tales from Borderlands, a spin-off series set in the universe of the popular Borderlands franchise. Despite being part of a series known for shooting and looting, Telltale’s signature storytelling will be front and center. Taking place on Pandora, the game will feature a cast of familiar faces as well as brand new characters.
Both games will be coming in 2014. With these games, plus The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, it’s obvious next year is going to be big for both Telltale and its fans. You can watch the teaser trailers for both games after the jump.
