Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall mobile game was just unveiled by Gaea, HBO, and Behaviour Interactive. It is an upcoming strategy RPG that features collectible characters and brings new content separate from the TV show. Its narrative is set Beyond the Wall, several decades before the events in the TV series Game of Thrones.
The storyline here begins after Lord Commander Brynden Rivers disappears beyond the wall. Ser Brynden Rivers is a character known to avid readers of Song of Ice and Fire books. He is also called Lord Bloodraven or later the Three Eyed Raven. He is King Aegon IV Targaryen’s bastard son and he has served as the hand of the king after the Blackfyre Rebellions, where he gained recognition. His brother, King Aegon V Targaryen, sent him to the Night’s Watch where he later became Lord Commander.
A dark mystery unveils after his disappearance as the Night’s Watch follows in his footsteps. The Creative Director for Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall, Justin Jones, supplemented the pre-order announcement by saying:
“One of the challenges with working with an [intellectual property] like this is trying to get everything you want to know from a game design perspective but also respect the brand. We’re all huge fans of the brand. We had to negotiate the brand restrictions on everything from crafting characters to getting the right feel of the Night’s Watch. Our story takes off hours after his disappearance where the player takes on the role of Lord Commander,” said Jones “Then you explore the mysteries beyond the Wall.”
As the new Lord Commander, the player assembles a team of his heroes and traverses the dangerous frozen wastes, fighting giants, wildlings, and other dangers. The combat uses a turn-based strategy method with a very well organized visual setting and style. This game is already being compared to Star Wars Galaxy of heroes or similar titles. Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall mobile game pre-order for iOS and Android is as of this moment available, while its official release date is coming soon.
