This week, the first episode of Telltale's Game of Thrones adventure series will roll out on different platforms. In the game, you will take on the role of various members of House Forrester to save the noble family from destruction. The story will let players interact with many iconic characters from the television series such as Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Margaery Tyrell, and Ramsay Snow.

A launch trailer for Episode 1 has just been released, and you can watch it for yourself below:

Need a refresher on just who House Forrester are? The latest press release for Episode 1: 'Iron From Ice' describes them as follows:

House Forrester is a noble house from the Wolfswood in the north of Westeros. Bannermen to House Glover, they have always offered unswerving loyalty to the ruling great house of the North - the Starks. The Forresters are seated at Ironrath, an imposing stronghold surrounded by towering ironwood trees. Built over fifteen hundred years ago by Cedric Forrester and his triplet sons, Ironrath is a testament to the strength and endurance of ironwood. The Forrester house words are 'Iron from Ice', which echoes their belief that - like the ironwood itself - the adverse conditions and unforgiving landscape of the North only makes them stronger.

Iron From Ice will be released on December 2nd on PC, Mac and PlayStation 4 in North America. On December 3rd, it will be available on Xbox One and Xbox 360 worldwide, and for PlayStation 4 in Europe. December 4 sees its release on iOS (Android TBA), and December 9th it will be out on PlayStation 3.

We'll be brining you a review for the game shortly, so make sure to check back in with us!
