BBC launches The Traitors online game
January 8, 2024
Fans of psychological reality competition show The Traitors now have a new way to get involved with the new series. Off the back of the third episode, the BBC is releasing a brand new online game to accompany the 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 became available online after Episode 3 aired on Friday January 5th. 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 mini-competitions 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,” says the BBC.
The game is available at bbc.co.uk/traitors on web, tablet and mobile devices.
“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,” advises Jamie Dodds, digital commissioning executive, BBC Entertainment. “It’s a great way for people at home to see if they can think like a Traitor!”
“We’ve built this game as a fun way to help people engage with one of our best loved and most exciting shows,” adds Pushpa Reddy, director of product management at the BBC. “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 January 10th.
