GAME OF THRONES ASCENT
Game of Thrones Ascent is a new type of social game that
unites both story and strategy allowing players to lead the life of
a noble during the time of upheaval portrayed in the books and TV
series. Players claim their birthright by choosing which of the
Great Houses they’ll swear allegiance to, select their
lineage, secure their holdings, develop their lands and reputation,
and assign sworn swords to quests -- while forging alliances with
new friends and much more.
Game of Thrones Ascent allows players the opportunity to
make various moral decisions that not only impact other players,
but the storyline as well. With deep and immersive political and
social play authentic to the world of Westeros and involving
diplomatic agreements, pacts, marriages and betrothals, a
player’s alignment and destiny truly lies in their own
