Fans of the Game of Thrones franchise will be pleased to know that Telltale Games has reduced the pricing of the popular game on the Play Store. This new deal gives you Episode 1 of Game of Thrones for just $0.60 in the U.S., $0.20 in Australia and £0.10 for users in the UK. These are the only regions where the pricing seems to be valid for now, but if you belong to any other region and are still finding the same price, make sure you let us know in the comments section below.
For now, this is only applicable on the first episode and the remaining three will still require you to shell out the same amount as you previously had to. This seems like the developers’ way to get more users hooked onto the first episode of the game and make them regulars thereafter. Bear in mind that you need to have the first episode of the game to access the remaining episodes.
Once you purchase the first episode, the rest have to be bought using in-app purchases. Interested in the game? Head over to the Play Store link below for more details.

Telltale Games has already released four episodes of the Game of Thrones franchise on mobile platforms. The developers have now announced the arrival of the fifth installment in the franchise, known as A Nest of Vipers. This expansion pack is expected to be available on major app hubs, including the Google Play Store starting next Thursday on the 23rd of July.
This is the penultimate episode in the series and fans will only have one more episode coming up before the series ends. In order to play the fifth episode, users need to download the original from the Play Store (link below) and get the remaining episodes through an in-app purchase.
Here’s what you can expect from this new installment of the game:
In this penultimate episode, the actions of every Forrester are vital to the survival of the house. Rodrik’s alliance with House Glenmore, and his defiance of the Whitehills, has drawn the ire of an even greater threat: Ramsay Snow. Far across the Narrow Sea in Essos, with Meereen now a free city, Asher is close to securing the army he desperately needs to return home, and save his family. In King’s Landing, Mira’s activities at Tommen’s coronation have not escaped the attention of Margaery Tyrell, and Cersei has realized that the handmaiden may prove useful in her political games. Finally, beyond the Wall, Gared’s unlikely allies are reluctant to help in the search for the North Grove… but this far into the frozen wilds, Crows and Free Folk have a common enemy; and winter is coming.

Telltale Games have brought The Walking Dead game to almost every platform in existence, including Xbox 360, PC, PS3, iPad, iPhone and just recently the PS Vita. For some reason, Telltale has yet to bring it to Android, but they are bringing it to Ouya.
Ouya is a part of Android in some ways, it runs on the same operating system, but Ouya spent the last year making sure the heavy skin and new developer SDK pushed the system far away from what can be considered Android.
Telltale Games will be bringing the full game to the Ouya console, with all five episodes of The Walking Dead and the DLC expansion 400 Days. As with all Ouya games, the first episode will come free of charge, with gamers having to pay for the other four episodes.
Telltale has also said they will be bringing the second series of The Walking Dead to the Ouya console, although no time frame was announced. We are also unsure if Telltale will be releasing the game on Ouya at the same time as the normal platforms.
The next series of The Walking Dead is set to follow the story of Clementine, after the huge first series. The Walking Dead was nominated for a whole host of awards and won many and is expected to continue to the success.
Activision has announced a release date for the next Walking Dead game, Survival Instinct. The Walking Dead-themed shooter will also be making an appearance on the Wii U, Activision confirmed.
The game will be hitting shelves on March 29th for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and will be downloadable (presumably off of Steam) on the PC. It is not yet known whether the PC version of the game will be downloadable only or if it’ll be something you can pick up at the store as well.
Just like the previous Walking Dead game, there’s no doubt that the game will be met with huge success. Considering that The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will be a shooter, it may be met with even more commercial success than was originally expected, as shooter’s tend to have a lot of appeal to a large amount of people (e.g. Call of Duty, Battlefield).
Survival Instinct follows characters from The Walking Dead TV series, but is completely unrelated to Telltale Games’ episodic Walking Dead game. However, Survival Instinct is inspired by the same comic book series, so there more than likely will be some similarities.
No doubt we’ll be seeing more Walking Dead games in the future considering how commercially successful the TV series has been.

Video game developer Telltale has announced the release of the final episode of the highly-acclaimed adventure series, the Walking Dead, this week. Titled as ‘No Time Left,’ the latest Walking Dead game marks the fifth installment and the last of the online series, which is based on the hit comic book by Charlie Adlard and Robert Kirkman.
The San Rafae, California-based company has enjoyed tremendous success since the launching of the first walking dead game in April. In fact, the first episode of the Walking Dead series sold 1 million copies in just 20 days, making it the fastest-selling title for Telltale.
“We can’t thank you all enough for your incredible support and we can’t wait for you all to experience the season finale of YOUR Walking Dead story,” said in a statement by Telltale.
Telltale said the Walking Dead ‘No Time Left’ will further expand the story’s compelling plot as the main protagonist Lee Everett battles zombie virus infection and searches for his adopted daughter Clementine.
“With one week left until launch worldwide, now is a great time for you and your friends to catch up on the series so you can all experience the season finale and discuss it together,” said Telltale.
Telltale is expected to launch the 5-game series of season one in two different collections (Bare-bones package and the Walking Dead: Compendium One) on December 4 for both XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 gaming platforms. The Special edition Compendium One feature 48 issues of the series
Telltale already announced last July that a second season of the Walking Dead online series is currently being developed and is expected to be released early next year.
The Walking Dead season finale will be available on the PSN on 20th of November while PC, XBLA, and iOS versions will be available on the 21st of November.
