The upcoming Game of Thrones episodic game by Telltale recently got some new details, shedding light on all those damn teaser tweets we saw over the past few months. The game has just received a new teaser trailer, as well as more information on House Forrester, the family that the story will focus on.
First up, the teaser trailer…
This new story tells of House Forrester, a noble family from the north of Westeros, loyal to the Starks of Winterfell. Caught up in the events surrounding the War of the Five Kings, they are thrown into a maelstrom of bloody warfare, revenge, intrigue, and horror as they fight to survive while the seven kingdoms tear themselves apart.
That definitely is a teaser. Not much is shown other than some familiar characters we already knew were going to be there thanks to leaked screenshots. What stood out for me however, is the voiceover, that of Cersei Lannister. I was wondering whether the cast from the television show would reprise their roles in-game, and it turns out that they will.
This is the first batch of confirmed characters and their voice actors/actresses – at least for the first episode (via Game Informer)
A number of familiar characters will appear throughout the season, including Cersei Lannister (Lena Heady), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), and Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon)
Telltale also revealed thirteen characters from House Forrester. They chose to do it in the most annoying of ways – one exclusive per specific publication. Thankfully, Game Informer have rounded up all that information. Here they all are, with all their relevant sources.
Lord Gregor Forrester – The lord of House Forrester is pledged to House Glover, which is in turn pledged to House Stark.
Lady Elissa Forrester – the matriarch of House Forrester, wed to Lord Gregor following the defeat of the mad king, Aerys Targaryen.
Rodrick Forrester – The eldest son of House Forrester is held home to protect Ironrath.
Asher Forrester – Son of House Forrester, exiled across the narrow sea by his father to prevent a war.
Talia Forrester – Named for Lady Elissa’s mother, Talia is the twin sister of Ethan Forrester.
Mira Forrester – The eldest daughter of House Forrester was sent to learn the ways of the Southron court by her mother. She serves as a handmaiden to Margaery Tyrell.
Ethan Forrester – Ethan is the twin of Talia. He is drawn to educational pursuits but has been thrust into the War of Five Kings.
Ryon Forrester – Ryon is the youngest child of the house and spends his days chasing the twins around Ironrath.
Royland Degore – The quick-tempered master-at-arms for House Forrester saw his family wiped out at the hands of the Greyjoy rebellion.
Maester Ortengryn – Ortengryn serves the Forresters and is advisor to Lord Gregor.
Gared Tuttle – Lord Forrester’s squire has risen from lowborn origins to serve House Forrester.
Duncan Tuttle – Duncan is a close friend of Lord Gregor Forrester and serves as the house castellan.
Malcolm Branfield – Lady Forrester’s brother is the only other survivor of his house. He’s also the last of his line.
Unfortunately, there is STILL no indication as to when we can play the first episode. It should be coming soon though… hopefully.
