Burbank, CA – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and HBO Licensing & Retail today announced the unleashing of Dragons, a highly anticipated new feature, in “Game of Thrones: Conquest.” This release is the latest milestone for the mobile game following its successful debut last fall. The game has spent more than 25 weeks in the App Store’s Top 50 grossing iOS apps, peaking as the no. 1 free-to-play strategy game in the U.S.
Additionally, the development studio behind “Game of Thrones: Conquest” has rebranded to WB Games Boston from Turbine, Inc. Acquired in 2010, the studio is now a leading developer of mobile games and recently acquired and fully integrated The Tap Lab, a Boston-based mobile gaming studio, into the WB Games Boston team.
“The worldwide success of ‘Game of Thrones: Conquest’ just one year after launch is a testament to the title’s widespread popularity as a leading mobile strategy game,” said Tom Casey, Vice President and Studio Head, WB Games Boston. “Our priority is to continue delivering the best gameplay experience for our players. With Dragons being the most requested feature, we are thrilled to finally unveil the mythical beasts in ‘Game of Thrones: Conquest’ and kick off the next chapter of the game’s success.”
Arriving in-game on the first anniversary of the title’s release, Dragons will introduce an entirely new strategic element to gameplay in “Game of Thrones: Conquest,” serving as a formidable weapon against enemy keeps or a powerful defense for player cities. Available on the App Store and Google Play, all players will be able to build a Dragon Pit to hatch their very own Dragon Egg, raising the newborn hatchling to a whelp, adolescent, and eventually to a fully grown adult in upcoming releases. Players will also be able to unlock access to specialized research, combat, and talent options to train their newest ally for battle.
“‘Game of Thrones’ fans around the world know the impact Dragons have on the balance of power in Westeros,” said Jeff Peters, Vice President, Global Licensing, HBO. “We’re looking forward to seeing the same dynamic play out inside the world of ‘Game Of Thrones: Conquest’ when players can add a fire-breathing friend to their armies.”
