George RR Martin may be too busy profitable Golden Globes and proudly owning a literal railroad to write down The Winds of Winter (and honest play to him, actually), however that does not imply we will not get our Game of Thrones repair elsewhere. AGOT, a extremely in style Game of Thrones mod for the Crusader Kings video games, is lastly getting its CK3 version, so you may simply writer your personal conclusion to the A Tune of Ice and Hearth story.

Going by the less-than-catchy title CK3AGOT (Crusader Kings 3: A Game of Thrones), the mod will launch into open beta tomorrow, April 14. The small print the creators have already put out look nice: anticipate an in depth recreation of Westeros within the CK3 engine, with all kinds of alternatives for intrigue, skulduggery, and crimes in opposition to gods and males alike. So all of the stuff you normally do in a game of CK3, however Ned Stark is there.

Though the CK2 model of mod provides an enormous swathe of Westeros’ historical past to mess around in—you can begin wherever from 300 years earlier than Aegon’s Conquest right as much as the start of the fourth guide, A Feast For Crows—CK3AGOT will prohibit you to beginning at Robert’s Insurrection for now.

You may additionally solely have entry to the continent of Westeros itself, with Essos—the eastern continent where Daenerys spent most of her time within the TV sequence and all of her time within the books to this point—staying as terra incognita for now. That may be just a little disappointing, however it means the modders can keep inside the feudal mechanics of already-existing CK3 and never must invent a bunch of latest mechanics to slot in ideas like dragons and societies just like the nomadic Dothraki. All that stuff continues to be very a lot attainable in future updates, too.

However even with these restrictions, there’s nonetheless loads of alternate (fictional) historical past enjoyable available. Robert’s Insurrection was an all-engulfing civil battle that just about established Westeros as you may comprehend it from the A Tune of Ice and Hearth books or the Game of Thrones TV show. Even for those who can solely begin from there, you may nonetheless see what occurs for those who put Rhaegar on the Iron Throne, ship Aerys Targaryen to remedy, or make Tywin Lannister be good to his kids (problem stage: not possible).

Or you may simply do what PCG’s Chris Livingston did within the CK2 model of the mod: Reside out the epic story of historical past’s footnote, Lord Ninedrick of Wycliffe.

There is not any download web page for CK3AGOT but, however you may maintain observe of the undertaking over on its subreddit, Discord, and official discussion board, where the download will assuredly be posted as quickly because it goes dwell.
