GAME OF THRONES Expands Into The Gaming World

- Advertisement -

Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV shows on the planet right now. In fact, it’s possibly the most popular show, and fans simply can’t get enough of the hit American fantasy drama due to the many memorable scenes. The show has been running now for close to 7 years, and in that time, there have been seven seasons produced. They’re currently filming the last ever series, and it’s set to be the biggest one yet.

With Game of Thrones being so popular with viewers, it’s expanded its horizons further than the TV screens and made impacts in other areas too. There’s been merchandise, but one area where Game of Thrones has really enjoyed success is the games industry. People have read about the characters and the plot-lines, they have seen them on television, but games allow audiences to actually experience Game of Thrones with a bit more of a hands-on approach.

First of all, there have been board games and these have been very well received. They allow players to take control of the houses of Westeros, playing with the original characters. There’s also been an updated version to the official board game that takes past events into consideration giving players an even more authentic experience.

As you’d expect there have been quite a few video and mobile games released too, with each one of them proving huge hits with fans and neutral gamers alike. The latest Game of Thrones game to hit the market is Game of Thrones: Conquest and this was released to both iOS and Android-based smartphones and tablets. There are also two games, Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms and Game of Thrones: Season Two, still yet to be released, with the latter likely to be available across all platforms.

Another area of gaming where Game of Thrones has enjoyed a lot of success is in the online casino world. Industry leaders Microgaming are behind the extremely popular Game of Thrones slot game that has 243 different ways for players to win. The game is played across five reels, with three rows and it sees players travel across both Westeros and Essos. There are some superb bonus features too which take the excitement levels up another notch, especially as there’s always a good chance that a player could walk away after winning big.

Another great aspect about Game of Thrones games is that during the break between it airing on TV after you’ve binged watched it again and again, you can still enjoy GOT in a more authentic way. Also, with the upcoming season being the very last one ever made, people will still want more Game of Thrones. The games allow that to be a reality.

We could even see further games released even after the TV show itself stops airing, with further titles hitting PC, console, mobile and online casinos. It would help the Game of Thrones name live on, and that would certainly please both GOT fans and gamers alike going forward.
