When the game of the TV series of the book A Game of Thrones was released this summer, Alec vanished for a few days. When we next saw him, he had the look of a man who has seen terrible things, all haunted and hollow. Turns out it’s a very long game and full of nastiness, although mostly of the intentional scripted sort. He said this: “it’s a troubled roleplaying game but also a really interesting and strong one. Every misfire is met by a triumph of some sort, and the one thing it is not is a lazy, perfunctory cash-in.” Is the new DLC a cash-in though? I don’t know! Screens and details below.
The new content takes place before the events of the game, exploring the “dark past” of Mors Westford.
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.
“Real frozen” is my least favourite flavour of hell.
The DLC is out now and costs £3.99.
