TellTale Games is well-known, in part, due to the episodic nature of its games. While this allows the company to work on multiple large titles at the same time, it also keeps gamers anxiously awaiting each new episode.
TellTale’s take on the Game of Thrones series previously announced that episode five would be entitled A Nest of Vipers, but very little was revealed about it beyond that. Today, TellTale directly released images of the next episode, in an effort to whet the appetite of its fans.
Five screenshots were posted to the official TellTale Games Twitter account earlier today. While there’s still a lot that remains to be seen, the new screenshots have revealed certain key characters will make appearances and are important in the episode. The screenshots reveal interactions between Mira and Tyrion in prison, as well as a conversation with Cersi. Asher is also pictured, first in a dispute, and then locked in combat with an unseen opponent. Unfortunately, TellTale Games still has not revealed a release date for Game of Thrones‘ fifth episode, but has promised that it’ll be delivered by the end of July.
It’s hard to predict exactly what this episode of Game of Thrones will hold for fans, but one can probably expect it to have a serious cliffhanger ending. Only one more episode will be produced for the Game of Thrones game after A Nest of Vipers, though it’s possible that TellTale Games may produce a Season 2, as they did with The Walking Dead. While TellTale Games frustrates some fans by not giving precise dates for its individual episodes, that might be better than having to disappoint fans with delays if problems arise.
TellTale Games’ take on the Game of Thrones series has created an interesting, in-depth adventure for fans of the books and TV series that’s managed to expand the massive lore of the series even further. With any luck, A Nest of Vipers will keep fans satisfied until the conclusion to the series is released.
Game of Thrones: Episode 5, ‘A Nest of Vipers,’ is set to be released during July for Android, iOS, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
