Game of Thrones Trailer: All Hail the Queen
The debut trailer for Telltale's upcoming Game of Thrones series focuses on Queen Cersei, voiced by Lena Headey, who plays her royal Machiavellian majesty on the popular HBO series of the same name.
Telltale Games has released the debut trailer for its upcoming Game of Thrones series. This series will follow the story of House Forrester, Bannermen of the Starks in the North, during the events of The War of the Five Kings. The game will focus on five different members of House Forrester spread throughout Westeros. Throughout their adventures, you will meet Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage (hopefully he's more enthusiastic about this game than he was Destiny); Queen Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey; Margaery Tyrell, voiced by Natalie Dormer; and Ramsay Snow, played by Iwan Rheon. Telltale claims that even more familiar faces from the series will appear in the later episodes. Telltale Games confirmed that this series will start towards the latter end of Season 3 of the HBO series and end just before the events of Season 5 begin.
Telltale had the following to say about the Forresters:
The Forresters are seated at Ironrath, an imposing stronghold surrounded by towering ironwood trees. Built over fifteen hundred years ago by Cedric Forrester and his triplet sons, Ironrath is a testament to the strength and endurance of Ironwood. The Forrester house words are 'Iron from Ice', which echoes their belief that - like the ironwood itself - the adverse conditions and unforgiving landscape of the North only makes them stronger.
House Forrester controls the majority of the ironwood forests in the Wolfswood, much to the chagrin of their bitter rivals, House Whitehill.
You will play the game from five different points of view. Each character you play as is a member of House Forrester; either a direct family member, or a person in service to the House. Scattered across Westeros and Essos, each character will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction.
Playing as five characters not only reflects the epic scope of Game of Thrones, but is also something that the player needs to be mindful of. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester. Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you're truly playing the Game of Thrones…where you win, or you die.
Game of Thrones' first episode, 'Iron From Ice,' will launch on PC, iOS, Android, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One soon. While no release date has been set for the first episode, it is said that it will launch before the end of the year.
