“If ____ is real” makes it sound like speculation exists surrounding this project. If this is not the case please request a title change to something less... speculative.

House Martell. Corner location, good access to trade nodes, twice the number of viable heirs, unique essos related events, Oberyn Martell.

HOUSE stark it would be the hardest to play as since you would always make the worst possible decision at the worst possible time

House Arryn, I want those crazy defense bonuses from the Eerie. Top notch jail too.

Definitely White Walkers. The unusual factions are always the most fun in Total War.

House Lanister let me be the baddest bitch in the kingdom or the biggest dick in Westeros! Either way I’m bringing the family name to greatness at all cost!!!

On a similar not why the fuck is this not a thing. This games aren’t the most popular and me and many other gamers that give this genre zero care will definitely jump in. This is the game of thrones game I want.

Bolton being a choice but not several actual major houses? SMH.

Play as the Arryns and turtle in the mountains.

Probably wouldn't happen for a long time since they already have a newish high fantasy total war with another installment on the way.

By the time they'd get around to making one the IP probably wouldn't be as hot as it is now, so I'd say it's pretttty unlikely.

Stark, but my ideal choice would be playing as the Night's Watch.
Sure about that? NW numbers are pretty low since no one believes in Wights. Would be like controlling a small militia of mall cops.

I know nothing of GoT, do they actually have different war styles or..?
Kinda, yeah. There’s a lot of stuff to work with if you’re clever. Dothraki are largely mounted forces, Unsullied are spearmen, northern fighters will be used to colder climates, while fighters from the south will be accustomed to heat. Things like that.

If you had told past me that CA would commit to a three-game epic using a dead Warhammer setting, I would have blinked twice too. But that's Total Warhammer's reality.

So Total War: A Tale Of Fire And Ice - Game Of Thrones Part 1 or w/e is slightly more likely than impossible. How about nigh impossible.
