Winter is here, and so is the new Game of Thrones game and app for Android and iOS. Fans of the extremely popular hit HBO TV show can look forward to more series coming soon, as the first episode arrived today. This morning TellTale Games has released the first of many episodes of the new Game of Thrones game for Android, and it’s one worth checking out.
TellTale Games released a popular series of games for the hit show The Walking Dead, and the same is here for all those Westeros fans waiting for season five of Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones took the internet and TV world by storm years ago and continues to be an extremely popular show for many reasons. With lots of killing, an addicting storyline, and much more as a few of those reasons, and now you can enjoy all of that on Android smartphones and tablets. Read on for more details regarding Game of Thrones Episode 1 for Android.
The hit show, based on the best-seller books by George R. R. Martin, is continued in this game and follows the plot of the show quite closely. Users will be able to take on the role and decision making of House Forrester, and kicks off between seasons three and five. Meaning those that haven’t caught up with all the episodes may want to hold off before downloading this impressive looking mobile game.
TellTale Games delivers voice-overs from several key and popular characters in the television series, mainly Peter Dinklage, but also Lena Heady, and Natalie Dormer to name a few. It’s more of a adventure game where you’ll take on the role of the noble family loyal to Winterfell, and what remains of house Stark. It looks quite promising, and here’s the release trailer.
It starts off as Game of Thrones Episode 1: Iron from Ice and is the the first installment in the six-episode series starting of at $4.99 today on the Google Play Store.
Most likely the game will remain at this price throughout all six episodes in the series, and continue to follow along with the hit TV show as Season 5 kicks off, and anything else that comes at a later date. Those who’ve read the books have a small idea of what’s coming, but keep it a secret as we don’t want any spoilers.
The game has stunning graphics, if you didn’t notice from the clip above, and has very life-like animations to go along with the official voice-overs and more. The publisher mentions that not all smartphones or tablets are capable of handling the game, while others may experience lag or glitches if you aren’t running on newer hardware.
In fact, the Galaxy Tab 3 and the Droid RAZR are currently not supported, and older devices like the Galaxy S2 may have a hard time with it. TellTale Games recommends smartphones or tablets with at least 1GB of RAM, and preferably devices with a quad-core processor or the new Tegra Note 4. Those with any decent smartphone released over the past 12-18 months should be fine, but it’s worth mentioning before you fork out the $4.99 asking price for Episode 1.
Reviews say the pace of the game is quite slow, but things are just getting started in what remains of the Stark House. It is also available on iTunes for the iPhone and iPad.
