This holiday season, Apples to Apples will delight players and bring families together using PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 and Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360, just before expanding onto Facebook and mobile devices.
The digital versions of Apples to Apples will feature social gaming connectivity capabilities, allowing family and friends to share or play anytime, anywhere – in the same room or on opposite sides of the world!
This December, THQ Inc. and Mattel bring families everywhere the ability to experience Apples to Apples, the game of hilarious comparisons, on their favorite game consoles. Additional social and mobile applications are set to launch later this winter.
“We built a truly dynamic digital environment for Apples to Apples and can’t wait to deliver it to the fans,” said Martin Good, executive VP of PlayTHQ, the company’s division for kids, family and casual games.
The game challenges players to outwit and anticipate the actions of others while taking into consideration personality, preferences and individual senses of humor.
Apples to Apples is a word comparison game that requires strategic thinking and allows players to learn while having fun.
On Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 and PlayStation Network for PS3 the game will feature single-player, local and online modes for up to six players. It also comes packed with all-new customizable play modes, vibrant backgrounds, and Golden Apple cards, which can be used to change the rules in fun new ways.
Participants can choose between 16 animated avatars such as Pirate Apple, Cowboy Apple and Ballerina Apple. Players will also be able to post game results and boast of their clever comparisons on Facebook to earn additional rewards.
Upcoming downloadable content for the console versions will include new Golden Apple cards, party backgrounds, and new playable apples. More than 1,000 additional cards are also bundled into the content packs to keep gameplay fresh and exciting, says the company.
Apples to Apples is scheduled for release this winter on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 (800 Microsoft Points), PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 ($9.99 USD), Facebook and mobile devices.
