Avid readers of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire or viewers of HBO’s Game of Thrones will be familiar with two iconic phrases that are constantly repeated in the series. The night is dark and full of terrors and winter is coming! Both of these sayings couldn’t be more appropriate for the first big expansion of the RPG by Disruptor Beam and Kongregate called Game of Thrones Ascent. The Long Night has been launched in the app stores bringing lots of new content and features to the mobile game.
Players are brought to the North where they are challenged to fight against White Walkers in dozens of new quests. Naturally, new items, world events, and many new story lines await players in the expansion. The world event lets players fight a terrifying plague that has broken out in the Gift and is being carried closer to Westeros by Wildlings and Wights. Each player has to do their share to prevent it from spreading all across Westeros.
