New Game Of Thrones Mobile Title Lets You Explore Alternate Futures With The Series' Characters

Rule wisely or face an end to your reign.


Nerial, Devolver Digital, and HBO just announced Reigns: Game of Thrones, the newest entry in the Reigns series. Using similar mechanics from the original title and its sequel Reigns: her Majesty, the next game puts you in control of one of the main characters from Game of Thrones as opposed to a nameless king or queen.

The Reigns titles are swipe 'em up games, so they're played a lot like the Tinder dating app. You're given control of a kingdom to rule and address issues one at a time. Each problem has two possible solutions, and you can make one by swiping to the left and another by swiping right. The series includes hundreds of different problems to solve, people to manage, and disasters to handle--so you keep playing until the consequences of your actions end your rule. Then the game continues with whoever is next in line for the throne, which is typically the child of the previous ruler.

Now Playing: Reigns: Game of Thrones - Official Reveal Trailer

No Caption Provided

Reigns: Games of Thrones explores possible futures for the characters from the HBO series. You can choose to reign as Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark, or one of the other possible kings or queens from the show before you decide their fate by swiping either right or left. Because the Reigns titles are built on choice, Reigns: Game of Thrones isn't tied to the source material's canon. Prepare to live through entirely new and unique outcomes, such as Cersei rebuilding the Great Sept of Baelor or Sansa Stark marrying Jaime Lannister.

Reigns: Game of Thrones comes to PC and mobile devices this October for $4/£3/€4. While you wait, you can play Reigns: Her Majesty on PC and mobile devices or the original title on PC, mobile devices, and Switch.
