(January 15, 2015 – Burbank, CA and Stamford, CT) – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WWE today announced “WWE Immortals” for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices is now available worldwide on the App Store and Google Play. Developed by NetherRealm Studios, the creators of the best-selling “Mortal Kombat” franchise and “Injustice: Gods Among Us,” in conjunction with Phosphor Game Studios, “WWE Immortals” is a free-to-play title that features Superstar battles in a fantastically re-imagined WWE world.
“WWE Immortals” offers an action-packed mobile gameplay experience that takes WWE Superstars such as John Cena, The Rock, Brock Lesnar, Triple H, Roman Reigns, The Bella Twins, Big Show and Sheamus, out of the ring and into an alternate universe where they battle as out-of-this-world versions of their in-ring personas. Utilizing a touch-based combat system, opponents can wield over-the-top signature Superstar moves and devastating powers to conquer opponents in bone-crunching matches. As the game progresses, participants can supercharge their roster with gear and support cards, engage with players around the world, and participate in in-game challenges tied to WWE pay-per-view events.
“‘WWE Immortals’ is a heart-pounding experience that brings the world-renowned WWE brand to fans and gamers in a whole new way,” said Greg Ballard, Senior Vice President, Mobile, Social and Emerging Platforms, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The game will continue to evolve with our ongoing support of events and updates to the roster that will keep the game fresh for many months to come.”
