As the more perceptive amongst you may have inferred from the title, a Game of Thrones video game is on its way it. Though rumours have been rife for a few weeks now, the game was only formally confirmed over the weekend: no doubt a tactical decision timed to uplift spirits during this bleak revision period.
The adaption is being developed by Telltale games, the talented studio behind the recent, and widely praised, Walking Dead video game series. Therefore, expect an experience with a firm emphasis on storytelling and decision making. Nevertheless, “You’ll be swinging a sword now and then” Telltale confirmed (according to Kotuku).
So though it has certainly been in Scotland ages already, winter is officially coming to our consoles sometime during 2014. I’ll drink my mead to that!
