As you've most likely heard, Telltale's Game of Thrones series is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand its well written and surprisingly accurate to the GoT world, while on the other hand your choices barely matter and the entire ending is decided in the final 30 minutes. In many ways its more of an interactive movie than an actual game, far more than what you might've encountered in Telltale's previous work.

Given the controversy and wildly conflicting reviews its not exactly easy to drop €28 on it and hope for the best, which is why I'm glad to say that the very first episode is now free to try out. So if you ever wanted to see what Telltale's Game of Thrones series is all about, you now have a chance to do just that!

Simply head on over to Telltale's website, create an account, and you will be playing in no time. And if you need a bit of preview of what exactly the first episode is all about, allow me to send you off with the launch trailer. Enjoy!
