There’ll be Five Playable Family Members in Telltale’s Game of Thrones

Telltale Games, the acclaimed developer behind its own adaption of The Walking Dead , announced that it would also be doing its own adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones back in December last year, and not much is known about it save for a few bits of information.

In a recent interview, however, Telltale revealed a little more about its Game of Thrones adaptation, specifically regarding playable characters and how many to expect. The studio’s senior vice president of publishing, Steve Allison, when asked about whether or not Telltale might branch away from its template of success, discussed a little bit about multi-protagonist storytelling, and unveiled that its Game of Thrones adaptation will feature five playable characters–all from the same family.

Question: How far will future games branch out from the Telltale template already set, or do you believe that template is strong enough to sustain multiple game series as it is?”

Answer: 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. 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.

In Game of Thrones we’re taking that multi-protagonist design even further with five playable characters from the same family whose choices affect everyone in the family, and that adds a whole new layer to things that we’re really excited about.

We feel like the core tailored narrative template is very strong and supports multiple IP executions while also being extremely flexible in [taking on board] new narrative designs that I’ve mentioned here. It will continue to evolve from game series to game series.

Earlier in the interview, Allison also revealed that, thanks in part to the current-gen consoles, both Game of Thrones and Telltale’s other project, Tales from the Borderlands , will utilize asynchronous loading, which is said to significantly improve the loading times of each game compared to Telltale’s older titles. Allison also hinted that the studio will soon share news on unannounced projects as well.

Allison also revealed that the premiere episode of Tales from the Borderlands will launch at the same time as Games of Thrones’ , which will be before the end of the year .
