HBO and Telltale games are teaming up to bring us the first official Game of Thrones Video Game. Telltale Games is the studio behind The Walking Dead video game. The news was announced on Saturday during Spike TV’s “Video Game Awards.” There was a 25-second teaser trailer aired during the awards show, but it didn’t reveal too much about what to expect from the game.
Nevertheless, Telltale games definitely have the story, environment, and characters to work with. There is no news yet on what type of game this will be? Strategy, First-person, MMO?
“We’ll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great,” Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games, said during the announcement. “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.”
It's TRUE! We're working with @HBO to create an all-new episodic game series based on GAME OF THRONES in 2014! #VGX pic.twitter.com/d5GkhS2MOw
