Telltale Games has released a new Game of Thrones video game trailer for Episode 2 of their six-part series. “The Lost Lords” picks up where the last episode left off, and while I’d give you a synopsis of what happened, that’s somewhat difficult. For those who haven’t played Telltale Games’ titles, your choices affect the storyline. These choices can be life-or-death, so it’s difficult for any two stories to be exactly the same. This weight makes the episodes far more engrossing since you’re forced to reckon with all the intrigue and consequences Westeros can provide.
Hit the jump to check out the new Game of Thrones video game trailer. Episode 2, “The Lost Lords”, will be released tomorrow on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and Steam; it goes to Xbox 360 and Xbox One on February 4th; and will arrive on Android and iOS on February 5th. And remember, Game of Thrones Season 5 premieres April 12th. Winter is staggered.
Here’s the official synopsis for Game of Thrones: The Lost Lords:
House Forrester is in disarray. Their liege lord and his heir are dead, and Ironrath is occupied by Whitehill soldiers. The survival of the family depends upon those who are left. Placed at King’s Landing, the epicenter of intrigue, Mira Forrester must weigh her loyalty to Margaery Tyrell against the needs of her family, while choosing how to play the political games of Tyrion Lannister. One misstep could spell doom for Mira and her entire family. To the far north, Gared Tuttle finds that the wall and its crows hold little love for a squire from the Wolfswood, but finds kinship in the bastard son of Ned Stark. Gared must prove worthy of becoming a ranger in order to carry out the mission given him; one that is vital to the future of those he serves. To the east, Asher Forrester, the exiled son, is called back to Westeros to aid his family, but how can one man help when the Boltons rule the north with an iron fist? Meanwhile, an unexpected source of hope returns to the Forresters, but Ironrath is no place for the weak.
