“Game of Thrones: Ascent,” the popular Facebook strategy game based on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” series, has made its way onto the iPad for mobile play (via Gamespot). Fans will likely find it a great way to keep themselves occupied while waiting for “Game of Thrones” Season 4 to premiere, but the game doesn’t stop there.
“Game of Thrones: Ascent” will receive content updates following each episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 4. Arriving on the following Monday, the game will have new quests available to allow players to explore the world of the show even further.
If you ever wanted to have your own House in Westeros, now’s your chance. “Game of Thrones: Ascent” is available now in the App Store. Facebook named it one of the best games of 2013. An Android version is still in the works.
In “Game of Thrones” Seasson 4, encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact… but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne.
“Game of Thrones” Season 4 premieres Sunday, April 6 on HBO.
