Downton Abbey fans who have been keeping up with the series for over half a decade are anxiously waiting for the upcoming season premier. It’s an opportunity to rub elbows with the Earl and Countess of Grantham a few more times before the final episode hits the airwaves this winter. However, Activision is giving Downtonians the chance to spend a little extra time with the Crawley family in a brand new interactive game. Downton Abbey: Mysteries of the Manor hits select Apple, Android, or Fire devices today.
In Mysteries of the Manor, you’ll step into the role of a newly hired staff member who was brought in to investigate a mysterious burglary. An intruder has ransacked the abbey, putting the Crawley’s family fortune in jeopardy. You’ll need to search each room and assemble the evidence if you want to get to the bottom of this whodunit.
Returning items to their rightful owners is a good way to earn the trust of the estate’s residents, and it will lay foundation for the abbey’s eventual restoration. But choose your friends wisely. In a place where everyone has something to hide, discretion is always important.
Fans of the series will enjoy monthly content updates (including a Christmas update, obviously) and compete with friends on social leaderboards to see who can restore more of the Abbey’s prized possessions to their former glory.
Downton Abbey: Mysteries of the Manor is available today for select Apple, Android, and Fire devices. And best of all, its free.
