Get ready for a new Game of Thrones Video Game, this time from TellTale
There is going to be another Game of Thrones video game, though this time it is taking on a brand-new form. It will be made by TellTale Games, the creators of the ‘Game of the Year’ winning episodic series based on the Walking Dead.
HBO and TellTale Games made the announcement last night at the SPIKE TV VGX awards. The game doesn’t have an exact release date at this point, though it is expected to release the first episode in 2014. We’ll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great,” said Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games in a statement. “We’re just really getting into it right now and thinking about characters — who has the most at stake, who has the biggest impact on the world.”
There was a short trailer released as well, but it didn’t show any gameplay or animation form the game, it was just to announce that it was coming. TellTale struck-gold when it released ‘The Walking Dead’ in its episodic-form, the game was an instant success and was soon ported to almost every platform one could play a game on, from iOS to PC to consoles and PS Vita.
The company’s latest game is also receiving warn reviews, though it doesn’t seem like it will top the enthusiasm of ‘The Walking Dead’ series. That game is called ‘The Wolf Among Us’ based on a popular ‘modern-day fable’ account of a detective from a popular DC comic series.
There was a Game of Thrones based video-game developed by Cyanide and published by Atlus in 2012, it did not do as well as they had hoped, and no sequel was ever made.
