Great news for Game of Thrones fans: the people behind the award-winning The Walking Dead game series are developing several games based on the HBO series.

Soon you will be able to take control of Westeros – or fail trying, in a truly epic fashion.

Telltale Games has announced plans to develop not one, but a series of video games based on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

This company is best known for their critically acclaimed The Walking Dead game, which was structured like a season of the show, split into five episodes that became available one by one.

The Walking Dead games also wowed its players by presenting a vast universe and a narrative which was partially constructed by the player herself – each decision in the game would change the story, and lead to new opportunities.

CEO of Telltale Games Dan Connors says in a statement that the forthcoming games will, “Put [the players] in control of the epic stories of warfare, intrigue, violence and revenge that we know and love.”

The game is based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire saga, and will tell the story of seven noble families fighting for control of Westeros.

The first game will be released in 2014, to be made available on PC, Mac, video game consoles and mobile devices.

Of course this is far from the first Game of Thrones game: Cyanide’s RPG game also at times allowed players to influence the storyline, as they switched between two different characters, and players could form alliances and battle each other in the Facebook-based Game of Thrones Ascent multiplayer game.

Have you played the episodic Walking Dead game, and are you excited for the upcoming Game of Thrones experience?

Check out a trailer for Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead season 1 game:

    The Telltale Walking Dead game is absolutely amazing, so I am definitely excited for them to have a go at another of my favorite shows. I hope they take a similar approach to The Walking Dead one where it connects to the show, but the bulk of it is independent of the main story, but just as or even more so epic. I’m definitely excited! (and for Season 2 of the Walking Dead one which is coming out next month. Eeeee!)

    Okay, another Game of Thrones based game….
    Do we really need one (considering after the others…)? I personally am more looking forward to the actual series rather another game that few people are going to play.
    Having said that, Telltale Games did a fantastic rendition of the Walking Dead, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see until the trailer comes out to see what it looks like. Fingers Crossed
