It sees players working their way through story-driven challenges that take place during the War of the Five Kings. Players will take control over one of the six houses of Westeros which include Lannister, Stark, Greyjoy, Martell, Tyrell or Baratheon. They will then attempt to claim the crown over 10 different rounds.

To do so, they'll need to be strategic. By deciding whether to use warfare, betrayal, cooperation, diplomacy, military tactics or a combination of them, they will be able to make a bid to claim the throne for themselves.

The mobile version of the game has completely reworked UI to better suit touch screen devices. Beyond that, there will be various options available when playing the game including asynchronous gameplay – both online and offline –, solo play and cross-platform multiplayer.
