Pack Review: Game of Thrones Ascent

Game of Thrones Ascent takes place in Westeros, and if you weren’t aware, that is also the same universe as the books/TV show. The game is loosely based on the TV show, as it is produced by HBO, where players can create a character and make various strategic decisions that impact the story. As well as interacting with other citizens and houses, players must employ sworn swords to do their bidding – each has strengths and can be equipped with items. Players must navigate the challenges of life that is associated with the house of their choosing. Obviously, leveling up is one of the main goals of the game, and can be done by creating items, battling other players, or even joining alliances and pooling resources. Game of Thrones: Ascent was originally only available in the browser, but has also been converted to the iPad. As new content is being released throughout the progression of the fourth season, now is a perfect time to get informed on Ascent and decide whether or not join the Game of Thrones.
