HBO's Game of Thrones is getting the online gaming treatment for the second time in the space of a calendar year. First it was Bigpoint's
free-to-play browser MMO, and now it's a Facebook game called Game of Thrones Ascent
, which is being developed by Disruptor Beam
, a social gaming company headed by former GamerDNA CEO Jon Radoff
The company says that players will "lead the life of a noble during the time of upheaval as portrayed in the books and the series thus experiencing a new type of game that unites both story and strategy."
Precious little info is given on the title, including a release date, but we'll bring you the latest as it becomes available.
