Kabam announced its partnership with Lionsgate to create a mobile strategy games based on the popular film franchise The Hunger Games. The result of this partnership is The Hunger Games: Panem Rising, a new role-playing card game based on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which will debut in theaters on November 21.
Gameplay in The Hunger Games: Panem Rising is similar to that of Kabam’s recently released The Lord of the Rings: Legends of Middle-earth. Players complete missions by “exploring” environments using stamina. Exploration is accomplished by repeatedly tapping on the explore button, and players receive experience points, gold and even new troops by exploring.
“As one of the most popular film franchises in history, Kabam knew we had to deliver an experience that not only dived deep into The Hunger Games universe but was also fun to play,” said Mike Li, co-founder and general manager of Kabam’s Beijing Studio, in a statement. “From exploring Districts to recruiting and collecting fan-favorite characters from all three films such as Katniss, Peeta and Gale, fans will appreciate The Hunger Games: Panem Rising’s authenticity and enjoy the strategic gameplay.”
The Hunger Games: Panem Rising is available to on the iTunes free mobile game download App Store.
