We’ve waited a while to see how Telltale’s art style matches up with the fantasy world of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series, and now we finally have the chance. Several screenshots have reportedly leaked from the studio showing off key characters to the franchise, including both Tyrion and Cersei Lannister.
Overall, it’s an excellent recreation of the show, keeping alive the distinct look of its characters but not sacrificing Telltale’s penchant for making cheap 3D polygons look fabulous. I’m excited to play along, and it only reminds me that I have some serious catching up to do on the television show. Oh, who has the time for all their hobbies anymore?
Telltale’s game will not grant players control of the most notable characters from the show, but like the books, it will put them in the viewpoint of five different protagonists, each from the different families warring over the Iron Throne.
No release date, but Telltale has stated that the game will be available before the end of the year.
