SDCC 2015: Heroes Reborn Games Announced
Imperative Entertainment has announced a licensing agreement with Universal Partnerships & Licensing to produce two new games to celebrate the launch of NBC‘s Heroes Reborn event series this fall, which expands upon the “Heroes” universe. The games, Heroes Reborn: Gemini (console/PC/Mac) and Heroes Reborn: Enigma (smartphone/tablet), feature two different stories from Heroes creator and Heroes Reborn Executive Producer Tim Kring.
In the expansive Heroes franchise, this is the first time mobile and console games have been created. Both games will be available for digital download and offer fans a chance to dive deeper into the world of Heroes Reborn, allowing users to experience what it’s like to “Be The Hero” for the first time. Heroes Reborn: Gemini and Heroes Reborn: Enigma will introduce players to never-before-seen characters and environments.
Kring, creator of the Heroes universe and Imperative Entertainment co-founder, tapped Phosphor, a leading independent producer of quality console and mobile games, to develop both games. To make for a truly immersive 3-D experience, the Unreal Engine 4 was used to create both games.
Heroes Reborn: Gemini and Heroes Reborn: Enigma tell two interlocking tales of characters and environments that fans of Heroes Reborn have never seen.
Expanding on the television story arc of Heroes Reborn, Heroes Reborn: Gemini is a next-generation first-person adventure PC/console game that brings players into the dangerous world of Cassandra, a young woman who is determined to solve the mysteries of her past while discovering her new powers. The first-person action-puzzle mobile game, Heroes Reborn: Enigma, follows Dahlia, an evolved human with incredible powers, as she attempts to escape captivity at a secret government facility called The Quarry.
Both games can be played and enjoyed separately but share key characters, story points and gameplay dynamics, creating a richer experience for those who play both games.
A teaser video for the game will be unveiled on Sunday, July 12, at NBC’s Heroes Reborn panel at San Diego Comic-Con, after which it will be widely viewable across numerous video platforms.
Heroes Reborn premieres Thursday, September 24, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
