Asmodee Digital Reveals “A Game Of Thrones: The Board Game – Digital Edition”

Asmodee Digital has been making PC versions of several board games for a while now, and they’re about to tackle a Game Of Thrones title. The company has announced they’ll be making A Game Of Thrones: The Board Game – Digital Edition, set to be released sometime in 2020. The game will take many of the mechanics and properties of the board game and incorporate them into a proper gaming format for online multiplayer and solo against the AI. Here’s hoping they can recreate the backstabbing that often comes with sessions.
