Combining strategy with storyline, the game tasks players with securing holdings, increasing lands, enhancing their reputation and sending swords into battle.

It will be developed by Disruptor Beam, which plans to launch a beta testing program prior to the game's launch.

"Everyone at Disruptor Beam was a huge fan of Game of Thrones long before we began working on the game, so we recognise that other fans expect character-driven conflict and intrigue to take centre stage in our new game," explained Disruptor Beam's Jon Radoff.

"Westeros is the perfect setting to deliver on our vision of weaving stories through decisions and social interactions.

"Game of Thrones Ascent will bring the world of Westeros to the over 500 million social game players in the market today, featuring original artwork in a highly engaging game experience that is, most importantly, fun for fans and their friends!"
