Telltale Games released the first image for the second episode of Game of Thrones. Episode two is titled, "Lost Lords" and will continue the story of House Forrester. We know that Lost Lords will have an 18+ age gate for "Extreme violence - Violence towards defenceless people - Strong language." Most fans were hoping the 18+ restriction would be because the game was moving to show more explicit sexual content, as the original book, and TV series do. The "Violence towards defenceless people" probably points towards that horrid man, Ramsey Snow, of House Bolton. They have a knack for torturing defenseless people. Lost Lords won't be all about how to torture people, it will also make you go all fuzzy and warm inside.
Job J Stauffer, Director of PR for Telltale Games explains.
After what we went through with The Walking Dead we expect nothing less from Telltale. Playing as Lee in TWD felt like facing a fate worse than death; over and over again. Telltale is simply brilliant when it comes to using storytelling to elicit emotional engagement in video games.
UPDATE: Release dates and "First Look" trailer
- Feb 3rd - PS3, PS4, PC/Mac

First Look at Game of Thrones: Lost Lords
"House Forrester is in disarray. Their liege lord and his heir are dead, and Ironrath is occupied by Whitehill soldiers. The survival of the family depends upon those who are left. Placed at King’s Landing, the epicenter of intrigue, Mira Forrester must weigh her loyalty to Margaery Tyrell against the needs of her family, while choosing how to play the political games of Tyrion Lannister. One misstep could spell doom for Mira and her entire family. To the far north, Gared Tuttle finds that the wall and its crows hold little love for a squire from the Wolfswood, but finds kinship in the bastard son of Ned Stark. Gared must prove worthy of becoming a ranger in order to carry out the mission given him; one that is vital to the future of those he serves. To the east, Asher Forrester, the exiled son, is called back to Westeros to aid his family, but how can one man help when the Boltons rule the north with an iron fist? Meanwhile, an unexpected source of hope returns to the Forresters, but Ironrath is no place for the weak."
