Ahead of the season four premiere of HBO's "Game of Thrones" next week, Game of Thrones Ascent has been released on iOS. Released on the Facebook platform in February last year, Game of Thrones Ascent is a strategic role-playing game hailed as a Facebook Staff Favorite of 2013. The game is developed by Disruptor Beam as an adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy novel series and the HBO TV series “Game of Thrones.” And now, under the publishing banner of Kongregate, the game has arrived on iOS. Featuring more than 2,5000 quests and dozens of adventures, Game of Thrones Ascent lets you experience the story of "Game of Thrones" in an exciting new way, with every decision you make impacting it as it unfolds. The game even promises frequent updates with content matching new episodes of the show. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Perhaps most notably, Game of Thrones Ascent has you pledging fealty to one of the great houses and competing against other players in epic combat:
Swear Fealty to one of the great houses - Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Tyrell, or Greyjoy - and consort with familiar characters. Perhaps Tyrion will drop by for dinner, or Ser Jorah will check in on your support for Daenerys? Or maybe you'll find yourself at Robb Stark's side in the feast hall for the infamous Red Wedding!Compatible with iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, Game of Thrones Ascent is available now in the App Store for free. In addition to Game of Thrones Ascent, an episodic "Game of Thrones" adventure game is set to be released later this year by Telltale Games, the studio behind the acclaimed Walking Dead: The Game and The Wolf Among Us. Last week, the official iOS companion app of the "Game of Thrones" franchise, George R. R. Martin’s A World Of Ice And Fire - A Game of Thrones Guide, received a significant content update. Most importantly, the update included an exclusive, never-before-read excerpt from “The Winds of Winter,” the next book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” cycle by George R. R. Martin.
