It's about to get ugly.

If you've ever watched Game of Thrones and thought, "Hey, I can do better!" then Reigns: Game of Thrones is undoubtedly for you. The cult classic mobile game is melding its addictive swipe-based gameplay with Game of Thrones storylines and characters for a unique twist on the game that's hitting mobile devices this October.

Reigns finds you tasked with working to satisfy the church, military powers, your subjects, and your cash by making all sorts of decisions, from the seemingly mundane to the all-important choices that will shape your future. With playable characters like Daenerys, Tyrion, Cersei, and Sansa as well as several others vying for the Iron Throne, there's plenty of ways to live out your Game of Thrones fantasies from this engaging little game, no matter who you want to come out on top.

As with the regular Reigns, you'll die and die again, so you can come back stronger in your next generation of characters. You'll come face to face with Melisandre herself, make some harrowing decisions when it comes to branching paths, and take part in a wide variety of different confrontations that wouldn't be out of place in the show itself.

You won't have to wait too long to give the game a go, thankfully. It's launching this October for $3.99 on iOS, Android, and PC. You can pre-order it now if you want to make sure you have it as soon as it drops. And you might well want to do that, because it looks pretty awesome.
