The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and Game of Thrones playable on Amazon Fire TV
Telltale Games has confirmed plans to bring three of its major episodic adventures -- The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and Game of Thrones -- to Amazon's newly revealed gaming/streaming device, Amazon Fire TV.
Technically, Season One of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead is already available for the device, which was officially announced today. Season Two, the season we're currently on, will arrive sometime later. The Wolf Among Us, currently on the third episode of its first season, will also be available on the device.
Game of Thrones is the only series of the three that hasn't yet been released on other platforms. In fact, it was only revealed last December that Telltale and HBO were teaming up to create an episodic adventure game based on the lore from George R.R. Martin's fantasy world. It was recently confirmed by Telltale CEO Dan Connors that the Game of Thrones game will not serve as a prequel to the books.
Amazon Fire TV is available for purchase today for $99. If you plan on gaming though, you're going to need to purchase the Amazon Fire Game Controller, which is sold separately for an additional $39.99. Other games already confirmed for Amazon Fire TV include Gameloft's Asphalt 8, a Monsters Inc.-themed endless runner, and a "Fire TV version" of Minecraft.
