Think you have what it takes to win the Game of Thrones? Telltale Games' upcoming video game set in the "Game of Thrones" universe will immerse gamers in House Forrester, a lesser-known Northern house with allegiance to the Starks that controls most of the ironwood forests in the Wolfswood.

On Tuesday, Telltale Games teased more information about its upcoming game via a blog post, and gave us our first look at the game's plotline. Players will assume the role of five different members of House Forrester, including both family members and people in service to the house, as the members of House Forrester try to prevent the house from meeting its doom.

The events in Telltale's Game of Thrones begin near the end of season 3 of the HBO series, and end right before the beginning of season 5. Players will find themselves in various familiar locations such as King's Landing and The Wall, as well as unknown locations like Ironrath, the home of House Forrester.

So brace yourselves for an epic journey, "Game of Thrones" fans. The first episode of the six-episode series, titled Iron From Ice, will be available soon on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and iOS, with additional platforms (looking at you, Android) to be announced later. No additional details on pricing were given, though expect to pay about $25-$30 if you want to play all six episodes.

As you play, remember the wise words of Syrio Forel: "There is only one god and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'Not today.'"
