Released last year, Asmodee Digital‘s and Dire Wolf Digital‘s PC and Mac adaption of the popular A Game of Thrones: The Board Game from Fantasy Flight Games has done quite well in translating the board game to digital. They stated then that they had plans to add DLC based on the expansions of the board game, as well as bringing the game to mobile platforms… and earlier this month they succeeded at doing both, bringing the A Dance of Dragons expansion to the game while also porting it to iOS and Android.
Asmodee Digital has sent a press release with a lot more details, including pricing for the mobile editions and a sense of the chief features of the DLC. Read it below!
Mashable has the exclusive news that explains just what this was about: Random House is publishing an official companion app for the A Song of Ice and Fire series, beginning with A Game of Thrones and including additional content to go through the rest of the series to date.
It’ll be hitting the Apple iTunes app store tomorrow (November 27th), while a version for the Nook (not Android, as the Mashable piece says) is coming in the near future. A demo version will be available to just give you a taste of the entries, which cover characters and places, and includes interactive maps to help orient you. It’s all quite lovingly put together… and as you may notice from the lead image, it seems there will, indeed, be art to accompany entries (those two particular pieces of art are by the amazing Michael Komarck for the sadly-hard-to-get Dabel Brothers 2009 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar).
