.Leading up to the UK release of Paramount Pictures/DreamWorks Pictures “War of the Worlds” on July 1st, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, Paramount Pictures Interactive Marketing have created a human survival online game at Waroftheworlds.com.
A human-survival game that echoes the themes and real world environments of the film, the game calls upon players to rescue survivors, collect objects, and escape danger in varying combinations. Players will try to escape maze-like boards while avoiding cataclysmic alien destruction.
The game is free for users worldwide and will be available in seven different languages. Designed as both a single and multi-player game, the game’s objectives are scaled to the number of people playing; in addition, multi-player boards will require players to work together to complete their mission. In the weeks approaching the film’s release, additional maps of increasing complication and difficulty will become available.
From UIP and Paramount Pictures comes the motion picture event of the year: “War of the Worlds,” directed by Steven Spielberg and starring international superstar Tom Cruise. A contemporary retelling of the H.G. Wells seminal classic, the sci-fi adventure thriller reveals the extraordinary battle for the future of humankind through the eyes of one American family fighting to survive it.
