Pre-Orders for Upcoming Digital Board Game Now Available with 20% Discount . Asmodee Digital, a leader in video game entertainment inspired by board games, has announced that A Game of Thrones: The Board Game - Digital Edition will be released on Steam (PC & Mac) on Oct. 6, 2020. Based on the wildly popular A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, the digital edition of the strategy board game is developed by Dire Wolf Digital (Eternal, Raiders of the North Sea, Root). Starting today, the game is available to pre-order for $15.99, a 20% discount on the normal base price of $19.99. Asmodee Digital has released a new trailer showing off the strategic gameplay mechanics.

The digital adaptation of the eponymous board game from Fantasy Flight Games, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game - Digital Edition is based on the best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin, and takes place during the War of the Five Kings, the massive conflict that pits the Great Houses of Westeros against each other. Players must use a combination of strategic planning, masterful diplomacy and military might and take control of one of six great Houses of Westeros (Lannister, Stark, Greyjoy, Martell, Tyrell or Baratheon) to conquer rivals and claim the Iron Throne. In the span of 10 rounds, players must use diplomatic and combative means to control as many castles and fortresses as possible, in order to claim the title of ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.

A Game of Thrones: The Board Game - Digital Edition allows up to six players to play online, or a single player with up to five AI opponents to play locally. It is the only game to capture the essence of the political and military tactics at play in Westeros, offering multi-layered strategies with military might being only one of the many tools available, along with diplomacy and deception.

Starting today, and running through Sept. 21, the Asmodee Digital Publisher Weekend on Steam will also offer major deals - up to 75% - for a large selection of recent releases and acclaimed bestsellers.
