Telltale Games, the makers of the acclaimed Walking Dead video games, are working on bringing another hit cable television show to gamers. The company confirmed that it is working with HBO to develop a Game of Thrones game.
The series was announced during Spike TV’s 2013 VGX Awards, reports MTV News. Later, Telltale tweeted a confirmation, noting that the game will be out at some point next year.
According to Kokatu, Telltale notes that the game will be similar to its previous products, in that it will be focused on the story and some big battles thrown in. "You'll be swinging a sword now and then,” the company promised. During the awards on Spike, Joel McHale did ask if there would be sex scenes, to which Telltale’s Kevin Bruner joked, “There are sex scenes on the show?”
Telltale did issue a teaser clip, but it doesn’t feature any gameplay. At this point, it’s not clear if the games will tell a new story or if they would follow the books by George R.R. Martin.
Game of Thrones’ fourth season starts next year.
