Mobile games publisher Your World Games has revealed the new GPS features of its upcoming wireless title “The Shroud”.
The game will revolve around a race of evil creatures which exist within The Shroud and enter our world through breach points. Players with GPS enabled phones will be alerted to these points and using an on-screen compass be directed to their location in the real world. Once at the location they will initiate special competitions.
The company plans to scale the distances depending on the player’s level. In practice this means that those at early levels in the game will travel just several hundred feet to reach a breach, while those at later levels will be moving a few miles.
Your World Games says it is working with several carriers concerning the title, though it would not reveal through which networks the game would be made available.
