As any self-respecting Game of Thrones fan knows, winter is coming, and as Telltale Games fans will be delighted to learn, the latest episode of their Game of Thrones series is coming on Tuesday, May 26. To celebrate the impending release of Sons of Winter, the fourth episode in the six-part game series, Telltale has released a brand new trailer that heralds death, destruction, and betrayal — as well as plenty of excruciating choices for players to make.
As we enter into the latter half of the story, the latest chapter in the ongoing saga of House Forrester looks to kick things up a notch after spending several episodes setting the table. Our heroes are scattered to the winds and forced to make some critical choices: Rodrik must find a way to remove the Whitehill boot from Ironrath’s proverbial neck; Gared must risk life, limb, and loyalty as he ventures beyond the Wall; Mira finds herself in a political minefield in King’s Landing in the wake of Joffrey’s death; and across the Narrow Sea in Essos, Asher must undertake some covert operations for the Mother of Dragons. In short, shit is about to hit the fan, y’all.
Plus, with returning actors from the show like Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen and Kit Harington as Jon Snow, this will make for a nice way to feed our need for all things Game of Thrones during the arduous wait until Sunday night.
The game will be available for PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 on Tuesday, May 26. It will next hit Xbox One and Xbox 360 on Wednesday, May 27. Finally, the game will come to iOS and Android on Thursday, May 28.
