Telltale Games and HBO Global Licensing have announced the release of ‘A Nest of Vipers’ – the penultimate episode of their Game of Thrones adventure game series.
“Based on the award-winning HBO television drama series, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series tells the story of House Forrester. Caught up in the fight for the Iron Throne, they are placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.”
The fifth episode is available now on PC and Mac, and can be bought from Steam, Telltale Online Store and other digital distribution services. The episode is also out on PSN for Playstation 4 and Playstation 3, while Xbox One and Xbox 360 users have to wait until 22nd of July for the game to get a release on Xbox Live. The next day, July 23rd will mark the episode’s release on the iOS App Store, as well as on Google Play. Basically, you can play the bugger on nigh-everything, which is pretty damn awesome in my book.
“In this penultimate episode, the actions of every Forrester are vital to the survival of the house. Rodrik’s alliance with House Glenmore, and his defiance of the Whitehills, has drawn the ire of an even greater threat: Ramsay Snow. Far across the Narrow Sea in Essos, with Meereen now a free city, Asher is close to securing the army he desperately needs to return home and save his family. In King’s Landing, Mira’s activities at Tommen’s coronation have not escaped the attention of Margaery Tyrell, and Cersei has realized that the handmaiden may prove useful in her political games. Finally, beyond the Wall, Gared’s unlikely allies are reluctant to help in the search for the North Grove… but this far into the frozen wilds, Crows and Free Folk have a common enemy; and winter is coming.”
Kevin Bruner, CEO and Co-Founder of Telltale Games also offered a comment: “Faced with bloodthirsty pit-fighters, dangers North of the Wall, and equally perilous political maneuvering in King’s Landing, we’re putting players in the most action-packed episode of the season so far. Extremely difficult choices will fall upon House Forrester in a cliffhanger ending before the dramatic season finale that’s yet to come.”
