A couple weeks ago we got our first look at The Hunger Games Adventures Facebook game, and over the weekend Lionsgate gave our admin team access to the beta site to check it out for ourselves (needless to say, we had a blast)! As a reminder, here’s the description The Huffington Post previously provided about the game:
According to Funtactix CEO Sam Glassenberg, “The Hunger Games Adventures” will be free to play, and takes place in an isometric version of Panem. Players, who play as characters bearing their own names rather than as characters from the books, will be able to spend real-world money in order to purchase upgrades and tools that will make their progress through the game smoother, but its makers insist that players will also be able fully to enjoy the gameplay without having to pay out any money.
At the game’s heart will be “World of Warcraft”-like quests, initially given by “The Hunger Games” characters Katniss and Peeta, and which involve completing simple in-game tasks. Players will also have their own “safe area” in the forest, where their energy will recharge, and which can be both decorated and fitted with in-game equipment.
How cool is it to put yourself in District 12 with Katniss!?
If you’re interested in being among the exclusive fans to check out the beta site, we are running a contest to give out 5 promo codes (one each to 5 fans) that will allow you access! Just leave a comment on this post between now and 11:59 PM ET on Sunday (March 25th) and we’ll pick 5 winners who will get early access to play the game.
You can also sign up for the beta at The Hunger Games Adventures.
