There’s a new mobile game coming that transports players back to Westeros.
Game of Thrones: Legends is a puzzle-based role-playing game being announced for next year.
In the game from Zynga Inc., players “will take on the role of a Westeros leader, honing their tactics and skill as they strategically assemble a team of champions, equip weapons and gear, and face formidable foes from the Game of Thrones universe.”
Legends will include hero characters from HBO’s Emmy-winning Thrones and will also include characters from its hit prequel series, House of the Dragon.
“We’re excited to create an RPG puzzle experience that amplifies the mechanics of skilled play and adds in champion management with the magnificent setting, characters and lore of the Game of Thrones universe from both series,” said Yaron Leyvand, Executive Vice President Mobile Games, Zynga. “Game of Thrones: Legends will bring your favorite Westeros characters, events and locations to life to create an immersive strategy experience players and fans around the world can enjoy.”
Players will be challenged to build and upgrade a team featuring champions such as Jon Snow, Rhaenyra Targaryen and Arya Stark, and then have puzzle battles to conquer different game modes on missions throughout Westeros. Zynga previously launched the slots game adventure, Game of Thrones Slots Casino, in 2019.
Game of Thrones and creator George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy universe have proved a fertile creative ground for video game developers and have inspired at least 12 titles since 2007 that have been playable on an assortment of platforms (mobile, PC, console and web browser). Legends marks the first officially confirmed new game in the space since 2020.
