Game of Thrones Gets Ascent Gets Fire & Blood Expansion

Game of Thrones Gets Ascent Gets Fire & Blood Expansion

May 28, 2015

Game of Thrones Accent, an RPG based on the hit show, is getting an update which brings a pretty interesting expansion: Fire & Blood.

It is the second big expansion the game has received.

Excerpts from the official press release:

ire & Blood, the second major content expansion for Game of Thrones Ascent, allows players to engage in the next evolution of dragon growth, while traveling across an all-new interactive map to engage with iconic tales from the show, including Daenerys’ sack of the slaver cities, the travels of Arya and the Hound, Robb Stark’s march on King’s Landing, and the Night’s Watch ranging to the unknown north of the Wall. Game of Thrones fans can play ‘Fire & Blood’ on Android via Google Play.
Tales of Ice and Fire! – In this all-new system, players can engage with Westeros in a whole new way – reaping epic rewards in quick-to-play Tales, assigning Sworn Swords to challenges, and completing tasks at each location. Players that succeed can earn and collect rewards immediately or rely on their Sworn Sword’s experience, gear and some luck to push onto the next challenge – or fail in the attempt! Players can compare their results with their friends on a Tales-specific leaderboard system. Just a few of the upcoming new Tales that players can look forward to in the coming weeks include:
Arya and the Hound (Starts 5/27!)
Tyrion in Exile
The King in the North
The Fist of the First Men
Next Age of DRAGONS! – Players can not only find a dragon egg and hatch it into a baby dragon but now, with the launch of Fire & Blood, players can evolve their baby dragons into young, adolescent dragons – by far the most desired companion in all of Westeros! Use the brand new Dragon Pit building to evolve uncolored, Red, Tan and Green dragons and unlock their incredible potential!
New Buildings – In addition to a new Dragon Pit, Fire & Blood adds the Great Hall to your holdings where you can trade special items earned in the Tales of Ice & Fire system, using all new recipes.
New ‘Season 5’ Content – The launch of Fire & Blood follows the Season 5 kick-off of the TV show. As with previous seasons, players can play through new content, quests, and purchase items that sync with each new episode. Watch on Sunday, play on Monday!

We had an opportunity to formally check out GoTA last year; it remains free (with in-app purchasing) on the Play Store.

Game of Thrones Ascent Review

Finally, Game of Thrones Ascent is released on Android devices. But will the trip through Westeros be worth your time? Let’s find out.

One of the coolest aspects of the Xbox 360 game Fable 3 is that players could make a string of decisions at the end of their adventure. Maybe it wasn’t the best solution for that game at that very moment, but the ability to decide what is best for yourself or others is a concept in video games I very much enjoy and appreciate. The Android game Game of Thrones Ascent starts with a couple challenges waiting to be tackled by choosing the option one prefers. A very strong start of the game.


Actually, a great deal of Game of Thrones Ascent’s gameplay is about making decisions on behalf of others. Sometimes there are only two choices to choose from and sometimes there are three, but there is always room for asking for more information or making an immediate decision (either fair or harsh), each with his own benefits en consequences. It’s nice and easygoing gameplay that suits a touch screen device very well, but the player must find reading a pleasure… you’ll do a lot of it.

As one makes one’s way through the story, the character the player has created keeps on evolving into something the player wants it to be. It feels that way too, with the choices it provides in, for example, titles of background. The other major gameplay part is building up a keep from scratch and maintain it while being attacked; the main goal of the game is to be the biggest name in Westeros. That, along with some other names and stories, is the only things the game inherits from the books.

That last point really makes the game feel welcome, because it is strong enough to stand on its own two feet, so to speak. With Game of Thrones: Ascent it is your turn to compete with the other houses in Westeros, instead of being the spectator of the impressive books or TV show. This game is not only good enough for Game of Throne fans, it is a fantastic strategic semi-action RPG for genre fans. Really one which is worth your time, building your house from the ground up.
