Nerial, Devolver Digital, and HBO have announced a new partnership that will see Reigns: Game of Thrones coming to mobile and PC devices this October. Apparently Reigns is already a swipe ’em smash hit for mobile gamers and whatnot, but now it’s getting a Game of Thrones makeover with HBO’s full blessing. Based on the trailer it does appear as if the Reigns game was meant to be played with Game of Thrones characters in mind, so while I have no clue what exactly the Reigns rage is all about, I do know that I’ll be checking out the Game of Thrones version this October.
Head on up above to check out the new trailer. You can read the official details on the announcement below.
About Reigns: Game of Thrones
Reigns: Game of Thrones will launch on the App Store, Google Play, and Steam for $3.99 in October and is available for pre-order now where available [reignsgame.com].
Reigns: Game of Thrones extends beyond the HBO® series and explores possible futures for key characters as seen through the fiery visions of Red Priestess, Melisandre. Players can choose to rule as Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark, and more while changing between each king and queen to face challenges and mysteries unique to their story. Melisandre’s flames have proven hard to decipher and less than reliable, so players may encounter stories they do not expect. Peer into the flames and you may see Cersei rebuild the Great Sept of Baelor or discover what could happen to the Seven Kingdoms if Sansa Stark married Jaime Lannister.
Players will choose characters to claim the Iron Throne while carefully navigating the complex relationships and hostile factions of the Seven Kingdoms. Employ ruthless tactics to outwit political rivals, wield impervious charm on your fickle bannerman, and maintain the balance and favor of the people to extend your reign to maybe, one day, survive the horrors of a winter in Westeros. Decide the fate of Seven Kingdoms and those that reside in your land to the soaring score of the HBO series.
