Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce A Song of the Sea, the next cycle of Chapter Packs for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!

From Winterfell to Sunspear, the Great Houses of Westeros play their game of thrones. Through schemes and strategic use of their agents, they pursue their interests in lands foreign and domestic, they seek to make alliances of convenience, and they hope to lure their foes into carefully woven snares. And when words fail or steel proves swifter and more decisive, they mobilize their militaries for war.

A Game of Thrones: The Card Game presents the struggles between the Great Houses in a riveting fashion that has long balanced the subtleties of the finest intrigues against the epic ferocity of wars that sweep across nations. One of the game’s particular challenges and triumphs has been to depict the world created by George R.R. Martin in his beloved fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, in such a way as to balance the stories’ epic natures against the depth of character of those people responsible for changing the course of history.

Now, with its release, A Song of the Sea will paint a larger picture of Martin’s epic naval battles even as it introduces another layer to the subtleties and personalities of those characters whose old grudges and deep-rooted ambitions fuel the game of thrones.

Fantasy Flight are doing something really interesting with this cycle. The addition of naval engagements is sure to spice up the game and add a new edge to combat.

There's an interview with Damon Stone at the end of the article linked in the OP that gives some insight into what's to come.

Gotta say I'm definitely looking forward to this cycle, though I hate it that Martell (my primary house) doesn't get any cool naval action.

Hopefully it will increase the uniqueness of different houses.
