Reigns: Game of Thrones, a "swipe 'em up" game, has been available on mobile devices for some time now, but the game just recently was ported to the Nintendo Switch. As a result, a new group of players have discovered the game, and with Season 8 of Game of Thrones on TV, Reigns: Game of Thrones seems to be reaching the peak of its popularity. These new players may be anxious to unlock their favorite Game of Thrones character in Reigns: Game of Thrones, like Arya Stark, for instance.
Arya has persisted as one of the most popular (and sometimes controversial) character on Game of Thrones, and she is playable in Reigns: Game of Thrones as well. However, to play as Arya in Reigns: Game of Thrones, players need to know how to unlock her first, and doing that is a multi-step process.
Here is how to unlock Arya in Reigns: Game of Thrones.
1. Unlock Tyrion
The first step to unlocking Arya in Reigns: Game of Thrones is unlocking Tyrion Lannister. Luckily, unlocking Tyrion is pretty straightforward. Just starting playing the game as Daenerys, and after your first death, Tyrion will become playable.
2. Play as Tyrion
After unlocking Tyrion, play as him and then play until the Grand Maester reports that some of Cersei's men have been mysteriously murdered. After investigating the deaths, there will be four suspects to choose from. Choose the Septon when given the chance. This will reveal Arya. The next time the player dies, Arya will become a playable ruler.
Unlocking Arya in Reigns: Game of Thrones is necessary to unlock another character in the game. Players will have to play as Arya to unlock Gendry, the bastard son of Robert Baratheon, and another popular character on the show. Considering the relationship between Arya and Gendry, it's no surprise that he's unlocked in her playthrough.
As far as Game of Thrones video games go, Reigns: Game of Thrones seems to be one of the more successful. It was nominated for Mobile Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2018, and it seems to have a dedicated fanbase. Hopefully we will see more high quality Game of Thrones game adaptations in the future, especially once the TV show wraps up, so fans can stay engaged with the A Song of Ice and Fire universe.
Reigns: Game of Thrones is out now for iOS, Android, PC, and Switch.
