Gameloft, a developer and publisher of mobile and console games, has announced a licensing agreement with Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group to develop and publish the official mobile game of the upcoming action movie Death Race.
Gameloft’s Death Race mobile game will launch on all major carrier decks in August 2008. Gameloft claims that Death Race is an action game with racing competition. As the game progresses, new cars and weapons are unlocked, and the skill level of the opponents increases.
Jeremy Laws, senior vice president for mobile and broadband at Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group (UPDPG), said: We have an exceptional, collaborative relationship with Gameloft and we continue to be impressed by the high-quality, graphically-rich mobile games they produce from our films.
The Death Race storyline is inherently game ready, and we believe that a lot of the film’s fans will be gamers who will love Gameloft’s mobile game.
