The first bits of information about Telltale Games’ upcoming Game of Thrones series have been revealed.
Tweeting the above image, the developer revealed that the game is called Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series.
Except for that the image had a hastag “#IronFromIce” and a quote from the recent ‘A Dance With Dragons’ novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, which says “…trackers and hunters sworn to Deepwood with clan names like Forrester and Woods, Branch and Bole.”
Telltale Games has already revealed that the game will run alongside the TV show. It however is rumored to be a side-story taking place alongside the show and novels.
The mention of Deepwood Motte and Forrester could be an indication of this, since the latter has only been briefly mentioned in the books. This gives Telltale freedom to relay a story on their own terms.
As for the #IronFromIce hashtag, it could be a reference to the ironborn of the Iron Island, a region ruled over by House Greyjoy. At this point though these are all speculations and here’s hoping that we get to hear more about the game during the remainder of Pax Prime 2014.
I would also love to connect more dots to the content in the novels. However, I haven’t read the recent books and posting further content from the web would only spoil the story for you all.
Telltale Games is just wrapping up work on The Walking Dead Season 2 and will soon jump to Tales from the Borderlands.
