While we may have to wait to 2019 to see the epic conclusion of HBO’s Game of Thrones, a new Free To Play iOS and Android official game has launched to help pass the time. The newly released Game of Thrones: Conquest lets you build up your house, form alliances, and in true GOT fashion, betray whoever the heck you like.
Here’s the full press release;
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and HBO Global Licensing today announced the worldwide launch of Game of Thrones: Conquest™ on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices. Developed by Turbine and based on the award winning HBO® series, Game of Thrones: Conquest allows players to become a lord or lady in Westeros and define a strategy for conquering the Seven Kingdoms and claiming the Iron Throne.
Game of Thrones: Conquest is a mobile Massively Multiplayer Online strategy game that gives players the opportunity to navigate the dangerous political landscape of Westeros while establishing their house, creating their sigil and raising their army to march against rivals. Players can sabotage their enemies from within or march with their friends & bannermen into war, and can expect to see some familiar faces from the HBO series, including Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Petyr Baelish and more.
“The political maneuvering of Game of Thrones has always been one of the most compelling elements of the show, and now players can live out that fantasy as they compete with thousands of other people for control of the Iron Throne,” said Tom Casey, VP, Studio Head at Turbine. “Players have the opportunity to betray their allies and unleash their most cunning schemes to gain more power, which can lead to some very intense and fun moments.”
“Every Game of Thrones fan has an opinion on who should rightfully sit on the Iron Throne, and now with Game of Thrones: Conquest these fans will have an opportunity to try to claim the throne for themselves,” said Jeff Peters, VP, Global Licensing at HBO. “We think fans are going to love this new opportunity to test their battle and strategy skills while exploring the world of Westeros.”
Navigating Westeros won’t be simple, but with the help of the innovative Allegiance System, players can recruit allies from around the globe to have a fair shot at the Iron Throne and prove their loyalty to their lord or lady. In this dynamic and political world, players will have the option to choose between deception and loyalty. Or as they shift their Allegiances, in true Game of Thrones style, betray their own Allegiance to grow their influence in Westeros and claim the Iron Throne for themselves.
In Game of Thrones: Conquest, players can capture 120+ iconic Seats of Power from the series such as King’s Landing and Winterfell. To control these locations you must recruit allies, as no war is ever won alone. Players must raise their armies and clash against rivals to capture these iconic strongholds. Once captured, players will need to defend them, as each Seat of Power endows their Allegiance with military and economic upgrades. They will then appoint their own small council and reward their most loyal bannermen by making them wardens of a Seat of Power.
