Yoozoo Games, a leading Chinese game developer and publisher, announced that ‘Game of Thrones Winter is Coming’, a browser game officially licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment under license from HBO is set to launch in spring 2019.
Developed by Yoozoo, the game’s scenery, characters, and topography are all being designed by renowned artists, staying faithful to the look and feel of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning show.
The story starts just after the death of Eddard Stark, where players take on the role of an ambitious Westeros lord, determined to save a people plagued by war and put a stop to the endless disputes between the Seven Kingdoms. Characters from Game of Thrones will appear across Westeros where the player will be able to recruit them to join their ranks.
The game has been designed to give players a balance of strategy and roleplaying where they can create a house, customize their castle, expand their territory, train an army, and progress through the history of Westeros. Players will also be able to team up with their friends and participate in opposition battles.
Yoozoo signed up for strategic cooperation with Warner Bros. under license from HBO, at China Joy 2017, securing the rights to make a Game of Thrones mobile game. The game will be first appearing at Gamescom 2018, Europe’s biggest games conference.
“Yoozoo values the culture and reputation of Game of Thrones. Through in-depth research and industry-leading technology, we aim to bring fans of the series a game that will live up to their expectations,” said Liu Wangqin, Vice President of YOOZOO and head of GTarcade at Gamescom 2018.
A global pre-registration event for the game is now open where players can get access to rewards upon release.
Headquartered in Shanghai, YOOZOO Games is a global entertainment company specializing in game development and distribution.
