Reigns: Game of Thrones Arriving this Week

Published

on

Nerial and Devolver Digital announced Reigns: Game of Thrones, their latest series, which arrives on both PC and mobile later this week.

Players can take on the role of some of the more notable characters within the popular HBO series, such as Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, among others, as they attempt to “navigate the complex relationships and hostile factions of the Seven Kingdoms.”

Each player will use various tactics to “outwit political rivals and wield impervious charm” on their bannerman, and will also have to keep their people happy in order to be successful.

Features include:

  • A Formidable Cast: Rule from the Iron Throne as Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark, and more. Change between each king and queen you unlock to face challenges and mysteries unique to their story.
  • Impose Your Will: Swipe left or right to change the fate of the Seven Kingdoms forever as you hear the impassioned pleas and unpredictable demands from the people of Westeros. If a particular character becomes bothersome, tear their card in half to unburden Your Majesty with their concerns – but at what cost?
  • Reenvision Westeros: Melisandre’s visions are your playing field and extend beyond the TV series to imagine the many fates of those that would sit upon the Iron Throne. Rebuild the Great Sept of Baelor as Cersei or discover the path of the Seven Kingdoms if Sansa Stark had married Jaime Lannister.
  • Regal Mini Games: Even the most powerful rulers need to set aside their worries and partake in more trivial matters now and then. From jousting to tavern brawls, these distractions aren’t without consequence.
  • A Grander Reigns: Fans of the Reigns series will be delighted with the biggest, deepest entry in the series that does not simply retell the stories you know but rather lets you create new adventures at your whim.
  • Iconic Soundtrack: Decide the fate of Westeros and those that reside in your land to the soaring score of the HBO series by Ramin Djawadi.

Reigns: Game of Thrones releases Thursday, October 18 for iOS, Android, and Steam, and will cost $3.99.

  • As you explore a given area, you will notice that a greater variety of Pokemon species will appear over time and at different rates.
  • Certain areas, such as parks and nature reserves, will now contain more varied Pokemon species.

Changes to Pokemon Effectiveness in Battle

  • CP values will be adjusted going forward to improve game balance.
  • HP values will be adjusted to close the gap between high HP Pokemon and low HP Pokemon.
  • Pokemon Defense and Stamina values will be retroactively rebalanced, allowing highly defensive Pokemon to be valuable in battle by outlasting opponents rather than simply running out the clock.
