• Here is the full Telltale Game of Thrones Episode 6 walkthrough!
Normally, after the end of each Telltale Game of Thrones adventure game episode, Telltale Games is nice enough to include a teaser trailer for the next episode. However, in this case the on July 21st, 2015 released Telltale Game of Thrones Episode 5 Walkthrough included none such trailer for “Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series – Episode 6: The Ice Dragon” during the ending.
I guess the Episode 6 trailer omission may have been done to keep tensions high or it’s simply because Episode 6 wasn’t far enough along yet.

Season 1 Info: There are six episodes in total in the first season of the game — keep in mind a second season hasn’t been confirmed, they are just called seasons like a set of TV show episodes are. However, the official announcement indicates we can look forward to many seasons! To quote: “Telltale Games and HBO® announce Partnership to Create Games based on Game of Thrones®. 2012 Studio of the Year and HBO Global Licensing in multi-year, multi-title partnership to Create Games Based on Emmy® Award-Winning Television Series.”
Throughout the first season you will control five characters affiliated with House Forrester of Ironrath, a house of the wolfswood in the north of Westeros. Other locations in the game will include The Wall and King’s Landing.
Here’s Telltale Game of Thrones season introduction trailer:
Forrester History: “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.
Ironrath sits on the edge of the largest ironwood forest in Westeros, which has proven to be a strategic advantage for the House. The trees are a valuable commodity; many of the best weapons, ships, and defensive structures include the use of ironwood. House Forrester controls the majority of the ironwood forests in the Wolfswood, much to the chagrin of their bitter rivals, House Whitehill.
Although the Forresters have not appeared in HBO’s TV show, they are canon to the world created by George R. R. Martin, having appeared in the book ‘A Dance with Dragons’.
You will play the game from five different points of view. Each character you play as is a member of House Forrester; either a direct family member, or a person in service to the House. Scattered across Westeros and Essos, each character will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction.
Playing as five characters not only reflects the epic scope of Game of Thrones, but is also something that the player needs to be mindful of. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester. Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you’re truly playing the Game of Thrones… where you win, or you die.”
Here’s an old interview with the founders of Telltale Games about Game of Thrones:
House Forrester has quickly gotten caught up in the events of The War of the Five Kings. In each episode they are placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.

The description reads: “Your story is about to come to an epic conclusion. With House Whitehill tightening its grip on Ironrath at the behest of Ramsay Bolton, the remaining Forresters must give their all to save the family, whether through diplomacy, subterfuge, or violent force.
