Reigns: Beyond Out Now on Apple Arcade

The latest game in the Reigns series has landed on Apple Arcade, and it’s a doozy. Set in the future it sees you playing a member of a galaxy-trotting band, and it throws some interesting new mechanics into the card-swiping mix.

If you’ve not played a Reigns game before, they’re essentially a mix between Tinder and a game book. You make decisions by swiping cards to the left or right, and the choices you make effect the future.

In Reigns: Beyond there are also musical sections. These see you guiding a spinning guitar down a glowing line and collecting hearts. There’s a brilliant story that glues everything together, and as you might imagine, things are never quite what they seem.

Check out the trailer we’ve embedded below to get an idea of what to expect from the game.

Reigns: Beyond is a pretty big departure from the kingdom-wrangling of the first few games, but it’s awesome to see the franchise branching out in new and interesting directions. Be honest, who hasn’t dreamed of being an intergalactic rockstar at some point in their life.

You can grab Reigns: Beyond for iPad and iPhone right now. You’re going to need an Apple Arcade subscription to play it. But since Apple Arcade is the best thing to happen to mobile gaming in years, we imagine you’ve already got one of those.
