As promised, Telltale Games has released the launch trailer for the hotly-anticipated Game of Thrones: Episode 4 – Sons of Winter, which sees the northerly Forrester clan scattered as they struggle to remain afloat in the all-encompassing War of the Five Kings.
Alongside today’s new footage is a confirmed release date for the new installment, which is due to make its debut across PC and PlayStation platforms on May 26. The following day will see Sons of Winter launch for Xbox platforms, while May 28 will herald the new episode on iOS and Android devices.
We’re over the halfway point in Telltale’s episodic ode to Westeros. Sword in the Darkness, the most recent entry, was hailed as a high point in the series thus far, and the studio will no doubt be hoping to emulate its success as its series enters the final straight. At 6 episodes in total, fans can purchase the season pass for $25, while individual episodes are available to download at $5.
Game of Thrones: Episode 4 – Sons of Winter will continue the plight of the Forrester family when it lands on PC and PlayStation platforms first come May 26. In the meantime, you can get caught up with the happenings of the previous installment, Sword in the Darkness, via the synopsis below.
In Episode 4, the fate of the scattered Forresters hangs in the balance, and no one allied with the family is safe. An unexpected meeting offers Rodrik a new opportunity to free Ironrath from its Whitehill stranglehold, but with young Ryon Forrester still held prisoner, his next moves are critical. Gared must abandon Castle Black and venture beyond the Wall in search of the mysterious North Grove, risking encounters with Wildlings and worse. In King’s Landing, the population is reeling from a recent royal death, and Mira must step carefully in an increasingly complex game of politics where secrets are traded as currency. Far away in Essos, Asher infiltrates the slave city of Meereen at the behest of Daenerys Targaryen, but will the friendship he holds dear break under the strain of a mission that raises memories best forgotten?
