Around the time that Blade Runner 2049 was announced, a mobile game was also in the works. Very little information was given about the project outside of the fact that it will be set in the year 2049. After the film was released though, no new information was given about the game. Personally, I thought the game had been cancelled considering how long its been since it was announced. But I was wrong, and here are the pictures to prove it. I also have some information I sourced from @cyberpunkculture. It was translated from french, so if its a worded a little weird that’s why.
Since 1997 no one had dared to adapt Blade runner into play. The challenge is significant, because the adaptation was a huge and superb disappointment. If the title was inspired faithfully enough of the novel, its realization was quite catastrophic and its principle particularly wobbly. It took the release of Blade Runner 2049 for a studio to embark on the project. It’s been over a year since Next Games announced that it would team up with Alcon Entertainment to develop Blade Runner 2049 as a mobile game. “We are excited to be working on Blade Runner, a true icon of pop culture.
We are determined to realize the unique themes and vision of Blade Runner. Alcon Entertainment and ourselves enjoy authentic mobile games that are true to the original property, “said Teemu Huuhtanen CEO of Next Games. “Our partnership confirms Next Games’ mission to redefine how entertainment franchises can be transformed and enhanced with exciting mobile games that are enjoyed by millions of fans around the world.” The game follows a new Blade Runner responsible for tracking replicants. You will need to collect evidence and know as much as possible about your targets to confirm that they are synthetic beings, just like in movies.
This is a turn-based RPG, which means that in addition to fighting, special abilities and investigations, you will also be able to decide what you will do with your targets. You will be able to add famous characters from the Blade Runner Universe and use their skills to win in life-threatening situations. The harder the target, the bigger the reward. The game will also use locations of both movies. A multiplayer mode is provided. Currently the game has been released but only as a beta. Will they keep their promises, bring dystopia into our mobiles?
