The third episode of Telltale's contribution to the Game of Thrones universe, called The Sword in the Darkness, is now available via digital download on PC platforms and the PlayStation Network. Set between seasons 3 and 5 of the HBO series, the game places players in the shoes of five members of with House Forrester as they struggle to survive the upheaval caused by The War of the Five Kings. Telltale teases the story thusly (possible spoiler warning):

Asher, the exile, heads to Mereen in search of an army to take on the Whitehills. Meanwhile, far across land and sea in Westeros, Mira must deal with the lethal politics of King's Landing. Her family's safety is paramount and she will do anything to protect them, but nothing is given freely, and her choice of allies may soon come to haunt her. To the north, in Ironrath, the Whitehill occupation continues. Gryff Whitehill, fourth-born son, is out to prove himself, and brutality and violence grows daily, pushing the Forresters to make far-reaching decisions. Finally, at the Wall, Gared learns that he must head north if he is to help his house survive. But fate is cruel, forcing choices that will change his path forever.

If that description isn't enough, they also released a trailer for the episode.

Game of Thrones: The Sword in the Darkness is available starting March 24th on PC/Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, as well as the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in North America. The episode will be available on March 25th on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and Xbox 360, as well as for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in European territories. The episode comes to to compatible iOS and Android-based devices on March 26th.
