Telltale Games’ upcoming Game of Thrones adventure will follow the stories of five different playable characters, reports International Business Times after speaking with Senior VP of Publishing Steve Allison. The characters will be from the same family, so the choices you make with each character will directly affect the others. Allison promises it “adds a whole new layer to things that we’re really excited about.”
“We always will evolve our story telling toolkit from game to game based on the needs of each franchise and the creative decisions we’ve made,” says Allison. “For example, Tales from the Borderlands adds multi-protagonist storytelling for us layered into the tailored narrative design established with The Walking Dead and it works amazingly well with two playable characters.”
Telltale’s Game of Thrones is on track to debut its first episode before the end of 2014 alongside the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands. While it takes most inspiration from the show, Telltale teased some deeper lore from the novels to have some role in their series.
