BBC Launching The Traitors Online Game
Fans of psychological reality competition show The Traitors will be thrilled to learn there’s now a whole new way they can get involved with the new series. Off the back of the nail-biting third episode, the BBC is releasing a brand new online game to accompany the smash-hit entertainment show – allowing Traitors obsessives the chance to compete with friends, family and the nation as a while to prove who is the ultimate Traitors fan.
The new game will be made available online after episode 3 airs on Friday 5th January. Ahead of each subsequent episode airing on BBC One and iPlayer, players will be able to predict who they think will be the next person to be murdered by the Traitors, and who the Faithful will banish at the next Round Table. They’ll need to make their choices by the start of the next episode, and each correct guess will earn them points which will be added to their total over the course of the series.
They can also earn points by predicting which contestants they think will make it through to the endgame, and by answering bonus questions along the course of the series.
Players will see how their total ranks in the overall leader board, plus they’ll be able to form separate leagues with their friends – competing across the series to see who comes out on top after the final endgame. The better you understand the show and the characters in it – the better the bragging rights.
The game will be available at bbc.co.uk/traitors on web, tablet and mobile devices from Friday 5th January.
Jamie Dodds, digital commissioning executive, BBC Entertainment, says “This brand new game offers fans of The Traitors the chance to immerse themselves in the world of the show, and play along with all the betrayals, mind games, and manipulations of this epic new series. It’s a great way for people at home to see if they can think like a Traitor!”
Pushpa Reddy, director of product management at the BBC, says: “We’ve built this game as a fun way to help people engage with one of our best loved and most exciting shows. This is a game for The Traitors obsessives – using everything they know and understand about the show to inform their predictions to compete with their friends and family at this tense and nail-biting game and see who will emerge as the ultimate Traitors fan.”
The Traitors continues on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Wednesday 10th January.
