The series – A Song of Ice and Fire – is perhaps better known now as Game of Thrones, thanks to HBO’s television adaptation. It’s no surprise then that the new game takes that branding: Game of Thrones Ascent is currently in development at Disruptor Beam. We’re promised a title that will mix “political and sexual intrigue”, as the seven noble families battle it out for control of Westeros.
Gamers are given the ability to swear allegiance to the great house that takes their fancy, taking on all of the responsibilities, allegiances and enemies that come with it. You’ll step into the shoes of a noble during the same timeframe as the books and television adaptation, in a title that combines story with strategy.
Jon Radoff, CEO of Disruptor Beam explains:
Everyone at Disruptor Beam was a huge fan of Game of Thrones long before we began working on the game, so we recognize that other fans expect character-driven conflict and intrigue to take center stage in our new game. Westeros is the perfect setting to deliver on our vision of weaving stories through decisions and social interactions. Game of Thrones Ascent will bring the world of Westeros to the over 500 million social game players in the market today, featuring original artwork in a highly engaging game experience that is, most importantly, fun for fans and their friends!
