Activision Blizzard introduces mobile-social platform

New platform called Activate; two new mobile Skylanders games announced.

Publisher Activision-Blizzard has revealed its new mobile-social platform called Activate, as well as two new Skylanders games for iOS.

More Skylanders will be invading the iOS this November.

According to the site Inside Mobile Apps, the company will now also be in the same mobile competitive field as DeNA (Mobage) and GREE (OpenFeint). The social platform allows players to access Activision mobile games using Facebook credentials or an Activate account. The company plans to make the social platform compatible with its previous titles as well as its upcoming ones.

Meanwhile, the two new games announced are Skylanders Lost Islands and Skylanders Battlegrounds. The former is a resource management game, while the latter is an action game that will be reminiscent of the Skylanders games on the Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3. Both games feature cloud storage and compatibility with Skylanders figures.

The social platform and two games will be out this November. For more information on the latest Skylanders title, check out GameSpot's coverage.

Interesting... now that these games have become so overdone, I only need to look at the top centimeter of a screen shot to realize I'll hate something.

The addictiveness of Blizzard games combined with the money grubbing garbage of social games?  This does not seem like a healthy combination for gamers.

D3 was a bad rushed piece of garbage cause they were focusing on FarmCraft for Mobiles, GG Blizzard lost all my respect since SC2

Every time a social game is launched a puppy doesn't get adopted and angels cry.

I love pie.

 

Also, Kudos to Activision Blizzard for trying their hands at social games when company like Zynga already saturate the market to death.

At night, they cry about that silently, and in secret.
