The hot scoop out of Westeros is that Nerial, Devolver Digital and HBO have unveiled Reigns: Game of Thrones — a new power-grabbing game in the “swipe ‘em up” series, based on HBO’s award winning TV adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones. The title will launch on the App Store, Google Play and Steam for $3.99 in October, and is now available for pre-order.

Reigns: Game of Thrones extends beyond the show and explores possible futures for key characters as seen through the fiery visions of the Red Priestess, Melisandre. Players can choose to rule as Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark and other contenders 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.
