The game has also posted viral ads previously where Kathy Bates took on the role of Grandma Ursula - she was seen covering up knives in the yard after oh-so-casually revealing her tool shed of weapons. She was also shown seemingly swapping places with a "yarn grandma" in creepy horror-movie fashion, as well as sneaking around the house and activating various secret doors. All these ads post the question of what Grandma Ursula is hiding, and it's up to the players to find out. This also comes on top of Pedro Pascal playing as detective Tim Rockford during a recent event.

If you're eager to join in on all the fun and experience the Grandma Ursula hype yourself, you can do so by downloading Merge Mansion on the iOS App Store and on the Google Play Store for Android devices. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
