As is always the case with Game of Thrones, the lands of Westeros, Essos, and beyond are filled with danger around every corner, and now in the second half of Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones episodic series, the stakes for the Forrester clan and their allies are only growing higher.

A new trailer has officially been released for Game of Thrones: Episode 4, “Sons of Winter,” alongside the official release dates for the next episode of the six-part series, with the new episode to debut on Tuesday, May 26th for PC, Mac, PS4, and PS3, followed by a release on Wednesday, May 27th for Xbox One/Xbox 360 and Thursday, May 28th for iOS and Android.

Following the events of the previous episode, “The Sword in the Darkness,” the next installment of Telltale’s adaptation of the popular HBO television series shows that the consequences and stakes at hand are growing even higher, with the official description of Game of Thrones: Episode 4 reading:

“In Episode 4, the fate of the scattered Forresters hangs in the balance, and no one allied with the family is safe. An unexpected meeting offers Rodrik a new opportunity to free Ironrath from its Whitehill stranglehold, but with young Ryon Forrester still held prisoner, his next moves are critical. Gared must abandon Castle Black and venture beyond the Wall in search of the mysterious North Grove, risking encounters with Wildlings and worse. In King’s Landing, the population is reeling from a recent royal death, and Mira must step carefully in an increasingly complex game of politics where secrets are traded as currency. Far away in Essos, Asher infiltrates the slave city of Meereen at the behest of Daenerys Targaryen, but will the friendship he holds dear break under the strain of a mission that raises memories best forgotten?”

Game of Thrones is available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android, with Episode 4, “Sons of Winter,” to debut next week starting on May 26th – in the meantime, you can check out the official launch trailer for the fourth episode below:
