For those that don't know: Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall is pitched as a story-driven RPG meets a turn-based strategy game meets hero collector. Further, in addition to a campaign punctuated with squad-based tactical battles, there's PvP. As for the former, it takes place 48 hours before the events of the hit HBO television show. In it, Lord Commander Brynden Rivers has disappeared while ranging deep beyond the Wall. As a result, the Wall needs a new leader, which is where players come into the fold as the new commander of the Night's Watch.
"Command the Night's Watch in an original Game of Thrones story," reads an official eleavator pitch of the game. "Use the power of the weirwood trees to play characters like Jon Snow, Melisandre and Daenerys Targaryen. 48 years before the events of the Game of Thrones TV show, Lord Commander Brynden Rivers, better known as 'Bloodraven,' disappeared while ranging beyond the Wall. Now it's your turn to take command of the Night's Watch."
Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall is available on iOS devices, and will soon also be available on Android devices.
