'Game Of Thrones' (ALL) Expands With Beyond the Wall DLC - Screens

by Rainier on Nov. 8, 2012 @ 3:36 a.m. PST

Game of Thrones is an action RPG based on the internationally bestselling A Song of Ice and Fire series of books by George R. R. Martin and critically acclaimed HBO television series, Game of Thrones.

With an original story written under the supervision of Martin, "Game of Thrones" promises to deliver the ultimate interactive role-playing experience for fans.  The game is filled with familiar locations straight from the pages of the beloved fantasy saga along with the likeness of some actors portrayed in the series.

With over 15 million books sold worldwide and a hit television adaptation that was the winner of two prime time Emmy awards, the A Song of Ice and Fire series is one of the most popular fantasy franchises of all time.  Now fans will have a chance to not simply read or watch the series, but to take an active role in the new riveting drama as it unfolds.

With the downloadable content “Beyond the Wall” for Game of Thrones”, we plunge into the dark past of Mors Westford, during his early years in the Night’s Watch, long before the events of the main story. Offering up to 2 hours of additional gameplay, this new quest brings us at the heart of the Wildlings’ territory, the merciless outcast warriors, sworn enemies of the Night’s Watch. What started like a simple patrol on top of the Wall will quickly become a real frozen hell for Mors and his companions.


Through this new chapter of Game of Thrones, players will learn more about the past, the origin and the scars of Mors “The Butcher” Westford! We offer you to discover now a sneak peek at what awaits you beyond the wall, though these 6 exclusive screenshots directly taken from Mors’ new quest Beyond the Wall.

The DLC “Beyond the Wall” for Game of Thrones is now available on PC world wide and on Xbox LIVE in Europe, for €4.99/£3.99/400 MS points. It will be available on PlayStation Network the weeks to come.

In this 30-plus hour action RPG, players will enter the gritty and medieval fantasy world of Westeros.  As one of two original characters with disparate motivations, both former soldiers of Robert's Rebellion, players will forge alliances and wage battles as they play a pivotal role in the ongoing war for power of the Seven Kingdoms.  Their journey will span numerous quests, during which they will interact with many characters and make key decisions that impact the realm.

Standing before the majesty and bitter isolation of the Wall or walking through the streets and alleys of King's Landing, players will not simply pass by locations and characters integral to the series; they will explore and interact with them, meeting and learning about the people and history that defines them and their importance.  Key decisions and major events will have meaningful impact on Westeros, allowing the player to witness how the game world evolves over time based on their actions or inactions.  Moreover, "Game of Thrones" introduces an innovative "active slowdown tactical combat engine" in which combat mirrors the series' thoughtful approach to war and politics: fighting slows but never stops entirely, forcing the player to make quick, pressured choices before their enemy strikes again.

Starting now, all Steam pre-orders of the game include FREE access to the Prima Official eGuide for Game of Thrones! This amazing digital guide, accessible through the Steam overlay, includes all the secrets of the game, over 40 interactive maps, a comprehensive walkthrough to unlock all endings, expert tips, more than 130 exclusive codex entries, and much more!
