Go beyond the Wall in Apple Arcade's Game of Thrones: Tale of Crows
What you need to know
- Game of Thrones: Tale of Crows is the latest game to land on Apple Arcade.
- It's a "narrative idle game" based on the hit series.
- Unsurprisingly, it's all about the infamous Wall, but 8,000 years before the series we know.
The latest game to land, exclusively, on Apple Arcade is based on the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" and you can download Game of Thrones: Tale of Crows now.
The game, described as a "narrative idle game based in the Game of Thrones universe," will have in-world time pass at the same speed as the real world. That adds an interesting dynamic and it isn't one that we come across all that much. The story sounds pretty awesome, too.
And here's a handy trailer, too.
Developer Devolver says that we will be sending expeditions beyond the Wall and our intrepid explorers will continue their quest even while we aren't playing. That sounds like a recipe for disaster and anxiety to me, but to each their own!
Anyone with a $4.99 per month Apple Arcade subscription can download the new game (opens in new tab) directly from the App Store now. It's available on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
Unlimited games, one price
Apple Arcade has over a hundred premium games with more added regularly each week. There is something here for everyone, and it only costs $5 a month for all you can game!
