Telltale’s Game of Thrones will follow five playable characters

A Game of Thrones Xbox

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.

In the end, nobody is safe from the shambling, moaning hordes of undead which populate The Walking Dead’s dystopian alternate reality. Not the characters, the fans or the general public. Robert Kirman has created a rich and culturally pervasive lore. It was inevitable that Telltale Games extremely popular The Walking Dead series of episodic interactive stories would appear on Microsoft’s Xbox One console sooner or later.

TWD:S2 picks up directly where Season One ended. Players assume the role of Clementine as she continues her journey towards adolescence in an increasingly dangerous and challenging world. The Xbox One version of TWD:S2 has been released as a complete package, which is great news for anyone as impatient as me. Let’s jump in and see if this version is worth your hard earned cash.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 will release episodically on Xbox in 2015

Capcom's Resident Evil Revelations 2 for Xbox One

Capcom has announced that it will release Resident Evil Revelations 2 on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in early 2015.

At least, that’s when it will begin releasing the game. Breaking from franchise tradition, the sequel will adopt an episodic release format and will be split up into four digital episodes available for $5.99 each. It’s a release format perhaps best known to gamers thanks to another game franchise that pits humans against zombies: The Walking Dead. For its part, Capcom claims that this format is an evolution of the original Revelations‘ chapters format, though those chapters were sold together as a single release.

The publisher will release Resident Evil Revelations 2‘s episodes one week at a time before making the entire game available as a single digital release that will include some sort of additional content for $24.99. A retail version is also planned for a later date, and it will feature even more exclusive content at an MSRP of $39.99. Capcom promises that each episode “will feature hours of terrifying gameplay ending with dramatic cliff-hangers.”

Revelations 2 will put players in control of series mainstay Claire Redfield and task them with confronting the horrors of Redfield’s past. Joining her in the sequel is Moira Burton, who, along with Redfield, has been captured and must find out who took them and why.

The Walking Dead will release in October next month, with The Wolf Among Us following in November.  Players who have played the Xbox 360 or PC editions of these games likely won’t find a compelling reason to upgrade, but for players who missed out on these games in the previous generation of consoles, this revival of the adventure genre will come as a welcome addition to the ever-growing library of titles available on Xbox One.

The Walking Dead In the Pines trailer

It’s no secret that The Walking Dead Season 2 is off to a great start. The series is only two episodes in, and it’s getting loads of praise from critics and fans. A new trailer has been released showcasing the series so far, showing clips from the first two episodes and the various accolades the game received. The true star of this trailer isn’t Clementine or the zombies, but the beautifully emotional song that begins to play halfway through.

Fans of the game will no doubt recognize the tune, as it played during the credits of Episode 2. The song in question is “In the Pines”, a traditional American folk song dating back to the 1870s. The rendition heard in the game/trailer was arranged by Jared Emerson-Johnson, the long-time Telltale composer, and sung by Janel Drewis, who works at Telltale as an animator. The track is currently available for free, and you can download it from Bandcamp here.

The Walking Dead Season 2: A House Divided review (XBLA DLC)

The Walking Dead Season 2 was developed and published by Telltale Games. It was released March 5, 2014 for $4.99.

twds2e2scr_012-large

So far, The Walking Dead Season 2 has been off to a slow start. The first episode spent a lot of time separating itself from the original series, while setting the stage for the current one. It was a lot of build-up that ultimately had little immediate payoff.  Thankfully Episode 2: A House Divided picks up right where the last left off, allowing the story to kick itself into full gear. We finally see the direction the series is going, as Clementine’s new group is forced to deal with a mysterious new villain, Carver. Telltale delivers the experience we’ve come to expect from The Walking Dead - one full of tough choices, rough consequences, and a good helping of zombie slaughter.
