Announced back in August for an October crowning, Devolver Digital has officially declared the Reigns: Game of Thrones release date. The game is headed to PC and mobile devices later this week.
Playing quite similar to the original Reigns: Kings and Queens, Reigns: Game of Thrones takes many of the HBO series’ most iconic characters and posits them upon the Iron Throne. It’s up to you to then ensure that their rule is a successful one. Here is Devolver Digital’s breakdown:
“Through the fiery visions of Melisandre, claim the Iron Throne as Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and more to carefully navigate the complex relationships and hostile factions of the Seven Kingdoms. Employ ruthless tactics to outwit political rivals and wield impervious charm on your fickle bannerman. Maintain the balance and favor of the people to extend your reign and maybe, one day, survive the horrors of the coming winter.”
More From Nerd Much?:
The game’s playable cast includes Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark, and a few others. And with each of them comes a unique story of their own.
Alongside the Reigns: Game of Thrones release date announcement also came a new trailer. Much of it showcases exactly how the title plays. So watching the above clip gives a good idea of whether this type of management game is up your alley.
Devolver says it’s up to you to “Swipe left or right to change the fate of the Seven Kingdoms forever”. They note that “If a particular character becomes bothersome, tear their card in half to unburden Your Majesty with their concerns – but at what cost?” You never know which character will end up being your complete undoing – or your potential savior.
The Reigns: Game of Thrones release date is set for Thursday, October 18th. The title will list at $3.99 within the App Store, Google Play and Steam.
