The officially licensed Game of Thrones Winter is Coming browser game is now available, so a new CGI trailer has been released to complement it’s debut.
The game is a real-time strategy title that picks up right after the death of Ned Stark. Players will assume the role of a new Lord or Lady in his stead. It sounds like players will be building bases, managing resources, and attacking other castles to gain more power en route to taking the Iron Throne.
The game is supposed to be live today, and the site is running, but a few of the menus are still blank, so I’m not sure how functional it may be at launch. I didn’t have the time to create an account, but you can do so over at the official Game of Thrones Winter is Coming site.
About Game of Thrones Winter is Coming
Strategising starts in earnest in Game of Thrones Winter is Coming as players aim to build an impenetrable base, train a victorious army and recruit faithful followers from a pool of iconic characters. As players progress, they must continue to acquire the might, money and influence needed to take the Iron Throne.
Several characters from Game of Thrones can also be found across the vast Westeros landscape, each with their own diverse skill sets as well as their own band of soldiers and followers. Players must choose their allies wisely and recruit them into their ranks in order to leverage their influence and knowledge to plot a course towards domination.
Players can invite friends to raise an army and compete with other Westerosi lords and ladies to conquer their castles. Should they eventually become the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, players will be able to add their own distinct features and upgrades in order to sit on the Iron Throne in a fashion more befitting their reign. Players can also venture out to explore 30 different types of terrain and weather conditions in Westeros, as the continent’s appearance changes almost as often as its leaders.
In certain game modes, players will be able to experience their favorite moments from the show and see the story of Game of Thrones unfold once more. They will also be able to unlock exclusive hidden storylines through a wide variety of PVE missions, such as battle progressions that will pit players against hordes of roaming bandits and assassins for a chance to earn valuable rewards.
