The guys at Telltale Games had a plan in mind when they highly discounted the Game of Thrones app to only $0.60. They know the series is amazingly addictive and all other episodes are $4.99 each. This does include the latest one, ‘A Nest of Vipers’, which has just been released across all compatible platforms (PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS and Android).
This is episode 5 of the game’s 1st season, so if you haven’t been playing it you can get access to countless hours of the amazing story-telling that Telltale and George R.R. Martin are so characterized for. You would also have to pay $4.99 per episode (for installments 2-6), or $20 for the season pass.
As with the show, this interactive video game is full of medieval folk and death, so you are in for a treat. If you have been enjoying season 1 of Game of Thrones, you can simply follow the same drill and download the new episode as an in-app purchase within the app.
The Game of Thrones Telltale series is based on the same universe as the popular TV show, but the story revolves around House Forrester, a family in the North of Westeros which happened to be an important Stark partner. Things get heated as new rulers in the North arise, and you can imagine how things get after that (hint: not always pretty).
I definitely need to catch up on this series, as I only played the first couple episodes. Maybe this is my chance! Are you spending all your weekend hours waiting for winter to come?
