For those who are holding off to play the narrative-driven tale on PlayStation 3, the studio confirmed that Game of Thrones will premiere a little later on Sony’s last-gen console, with Telltale pegging the title to drop on December 8 across North America and Europe.
Featuring some of the most famous characters from George R.R. Martin’s seminal universe — including Tyrion and Cersei Lannister along with Natalie Dormer’s Margarey Tyrell — Telltale Games’ series will orbit around the northerly Forrester clan, who find themselves caught in the midst of The War of the Five Kings.
In order to keep fans of Westereos on the edge of their seats, the studio also noted that the full launch trailer for Game of Thrones will make its way online on December 1.
