Warner to release Watchmen online game for iPhone, iPod

MUMBAI: Warner Bros. Digital Distribution has made available Last Legion Games’ Watchmen: Justice is Coming online multiplayer game for the iPhone and iPod touch. For a very limited time, Watchmen: Justice is Coming is being offered at an introductory price of $0.99 on the Apple App Store.

Based on the film Watchmen, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures, Watchmen: Justice is Coming allows players to battle in realistic 3D environments and visualize changes to the world in real time.

Watchmen: Justice is Coming uses “cloudMMO,” Last Legion’s patent pending cloud based multiplayer technology that leverages Amazon.com Web Services allowing players to adventure through the incredible world of Watchmen. Players experience an ever-changing gaming environment, chat with other players and participate in street battles.

In Watchmen: Justice is Coming, players bring their own unique form of justice to New York City in the 1970s before the film’s central story unfolds. Masked adventuring has been outlawed. During this critical time period, crime is rampant and average citizens must take matters into their own hands to survive. Players create their personal avatar and enter the rain-soaked city of Manhattan. The dark metropolitan world is a vast network of interlocking and overlapping spaces that include: the seedy and saturated neon Red Light District; a run down Financial District and its dark waterfront; the downtown back-alleys of Lower Manhattan; a wide open City Park; and more.

An original story inspired by director Zack Snyder’s big screen version of Watchmen, which is based on the graphic novel illustrated and co-created by Dave Gibbons, Watchmen: Justice is Coming leads players on an immersive adventure inside the depths of the Watchmen universe.
