Bollywood Action Goes Global With Shah Rukh Khan’s RaOne: Genesis!
UTV Indiagames is pleased to announce the release of RaOne: Genesis, an action-packed 3-D arcade game now available for free in the Apple® App Store for iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®.
RaOne: Genesis is a free-to-play shooter game in which you assume the role of G.One, a mighty superhero who stands to defend the world against the wrath of a surreal creation – codename “RaOne” – and its minions.
RaOne: Genesis is based on Bollywood’s most eagerly awaited movies of the year, RaOne, scheduled for release on Oct. 26. The film was conceptualized by “King Khan” himself, Shah Rukh Khan, Bollywood’s megastar, who also stars as G.One
In the game, the next generation superhero can solidify electricity and use it to bring down any form of enemy. Equipped with special abilities and weaponry, iOS gamers must survive relentless waves of attacks from RaOne’s minions and encounter epic boss battles while exploring futuristic terrains, each more deadly than the first. With an aim to build on the franchise, the game will be episodic in nature, introducing new levels and a story that will continue to progress.
Additionally, the game will be micro-transaction enabled, so that users can customize and enhance their gameplay experience as they go.
“With the many strategic firsts that RaOne is bringing to the country, the first ever superhero social game on the most powerful medium today takes it to a whole new level,” said Shah Rukh Khan, referring to his character’s social avatar. “The game has been specially conceptualized to ensure that it reaches out to all the audiences that are eagerly waiting to catch a glimpse of the superhero, ‘G.One.’ This is the perfect opportunity for gamers to get introduced and engage with ‘G.One,’ understand his fantastic abilities and immerse themselves in the game and become superheroes!”
On taking the movie to the social gaming platform, Shailja Gupta, Digital and New Media Head, Red Chillies said, “The minute it was decided to start the game for the movie, I knew I wanted a social game. To take G.One across to all the audiences, we decided to build a franchise property where the character’s shelf life continues after the first superhero this social game created in India meant for Indian and worldwide audiences, with its reach and easy game play model, is an apt platform for gamers to engage with the superhero on their smartphones.”
The game’s other features include:
– Three separate terrains that grow more challenging throughout the game.
– Cinematic cut scenes to create an immersive story-driven experience.
– Purchasable weapons, armor and other upgrades.
– A Game Center feature to track your unlocked achievements or publish them on your Facebook wall.
