Liquid Adds Knightfall™: Rivals to Mobile Game Offering
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liquid Media Group Ltd. (the “Company” or “Liquid”) (Nasdaq: YVR) is pleased to announce that it is expanding the scope of its relationship with A+E Networks, becoming the official operator of the free-to-play, card-collecting strategy game Knightfall™: Rivals, available on iTunes and Google Play.
Based upon the HISTORY® original drama series from A+E Studios, Knightfall™: Rivals has nearly 50,000 installs across its mobile platforms, a combined social footprint of over 300,000 followers across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and earns revenue through in-app purchases that advance gameplay. The game invites you to craft your own strategy and battle players in real time. With hundreds of unique cards to collect and more to follow as the second season’s storyline develops, the combinations are virtually limitless.
“Knightfall is a great example of A+E’s commitment to immersive world-building, bringing the history of the Knights Templar vividly to life,” said Joshua Jackson, Chairman of Liquid Media. “We are excited to have Knightfall: Rivals join Ancient Aliens: The Game as the premiere clients on Liquid’s studio-as-a-service platform, Open NuAge.”
“This compelling drama from HISTORY demonstrates how Intellectual Property can be monetized across platforms simultaneously. Season two recently premiered on HISTORY, season one is available via streaming on Netflix and the game is available on mobile devices,” said Daniel Cruz, Chief Financial Officer of Liquid. “Liquid recognizes that this value chain is important for our gaming slate, and with mobile being the fastest growing sector of the total gaming market - expected to reach 60% market share of consumer spend in 2019 - we are proud to work with A+E Networks on this latest title.”
Last week’s premiere (ep.204) was #6 in dramas, and #10 in all scripted cable TV (L+3). Season two of “Knightfall” airs Mondays at 10pm on HISTORY.
