Heroes Reborn Game Tie-In Announced for Xbox One and PS4
NBC's superhero drama returning with game tie-ins across mobile and console.
Heroes Reborn, the upcoming continuation of NBC's superhero drama series, has spawned tie-in video games for mobile devices and consoles.
Heroes Reborn: Gemini is a first-person action adventure game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game casts players as Cassandra, a new character that has the ability to manipulate time and use telekinesis, which she must use to overcome enemies and puzzles.
The mobile game, titled Heroes Reborn: Enigma, is developed for iOS and Android using Epic's Unreal Engine 4, and follows Cassandra's 14-year old sister Dahlia, who is trapped in a secret government facility known as The Quarry.
Both games are being developed by Phosphor Games, a Chicago-based studio that has previously worked on tie-in games for Man of Steel and World War Z.
The studio also developed WWE Immortals, as well as original titles Horn and The Dark Meadow.
A trailer for both games is expected to be shown on July 12 at NBC’s Heroes panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
Heroes Reborn picks up where the 2006 series left off and will "reconnect with the basic elements of the show's first season," which shot to popularity by depicting normal people awakening inner superpowers.
The show's story begins shortly after a terrorist attack in Texas, which the government is blaming on super-humans. As a result of this, powered people have been exiled and forced to live in hiding. The show focuses on a number of characters as they try to uncover the truth of the attack, or seek revenge for lost loved ones.
Heroes Reborn is scheduled to begin airing on September 24, with returning cast members such as Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura) and Jack Coleman (Noah Bennet) starring.
