SAN RAFAEL, Calif., November 17th, 2015 — Leading and award-winning developer and publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games and HBO Global Licensing today announced that the critically-acclaimed Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series is now available at retailers as a disc release on game consoles and PC.
Based on the award-winning HBO television drama series, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series tells the story of House Forrester. Caught up in the fight for the Iron Throne, they are placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.
The six episode series is available on a season pass disc at retailers in North America beginning today on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 for the suggested retail price of $29.99 USD or equivalent; and beginning November 20th in Europe on these consoles as well as for PC. Also available digitally today is the dramatic conclusion in the season finale episode, ‘The Ice Dragon,’ marking the first time in Telltale’s release history that the finale is available simultaneously across all console, PC/Mac and mobile platforms, day and date, worldwide.
“With the season concluding today, and the series now available in stores across the world, we’re tremendously honored to have taken this journey across Westeros, and delighted to share the saga of House Forrester with fans everywhere,” said Kevin Bruner, CEO and Co-Founder of Telltale Games. “All of the drama, tension, and intrigue we love from the TV series has been translated to our most epic interactive adventure yet, and we’re thrilled to present this harrowing, untold story in one the most richly detailed universes in modern entertainment.”
The game series is based on the world, characters and events seen in the hit HBO TV show Game of Thrones, which in turn is based on George R. R. Martin’s books (A Song of Ice and Fire). The events in the game series begin towards the end of Season Three of the TV series and end right before the beginning of Season Five. Players visit familiar locations such as King’s Landing and The Wall, as well as unfamiliar locations such as Ironrath, the home of House Forrester.
The game is played from five different points of view. Each is either a direct Forrester family member, or a person in service to the House. Scattered across Westeros and Essos, each will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction.
Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series is rated ‘M’ (Mature) for Intense Violence, Blood and Gore, Sexual Themes, and Strong Language by the ESRB.
