The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Endless Runner Debuts This Month
With Jennifer Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire set to, ahem, catch fire at the box office later this month, Reliance Games announced a mobile game that will tie in with the forthcoming blockbuster.
In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Panem Run, players will take on the roles of contestants called upon as Tributes to fight in a perilous arena. However, they will do so in an endless runner fashion, collecting food and money while avoiding dangers that can stop their run. The game will feature online leaderboards, so friends can challenge one another to see who can get the best completion times.
"With its epic story of struggling for survival, The Hunger Games franchise lets us recreate the competitive world of Panem in a social mobile game," said CEO of Reliance Games Manish Agarwai, speaking with Polygon. "In partnering with Lionsgate, we'll build a community of Hunger Games fans, teaming up to face unique challenges together as they run through the Districts of Panem."
â¨The game should arrive at the same time as the film, November 22nd.
