Popular Facebook RPG strategy game Game of Thrones Ascent has just been released for iPad.
Based on the Game of Thrones TV series and George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books, the free-to-play game is set just after the death of the King’s Hand. It's up to you to harness the ensuing fallout to raise your character's status through the fiction's feudal hierarchy.
You build your own character from scratch, deciding their upbringing, allegiances, and even what gods they will worship. Once established, you can send your noble on "thousands" or missions and quests, all in the service of expanding your territory and increasing your influence in Westeros.
The game works in tandem with the HBO show, with each season bringing new content, allowing your character to participate in current events as they unfold each week.
With 2,500,000 people already playing Game of Thrones Ascent on Facebook, there is clearly something to this medieval RPG. You can join the fight for Westeros for free on your iPad right now.
