Players outrun WCKD in the Scorch in the officially licensed sequel to the mobile hit The Maze Runner™
NEW ZEALAND, Wellington, December 10, 2015 – Leading games publisher PikPok® today announced the launch of Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials ™ game for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android. The officially licensed game, developed by veteran developer Sticky Studios and published by PikPok, is based on the 20th Century Fox action-adventure film and James Dashner’s New York Times bestselling novel of the same name.
The game precedes the home entertainment release of Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials in the USA and Canada on December 15, 2015.
In this chapter of the epic saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. The official game gives players the ability to choose multiple runners from among their favorite characters, pitting them against the challenges of the Scorch.
“Last year we were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm fans showed for this series and these characters” said Mario Wynands, Managing Director of PikPok. “With the sequel, Sticky Studios have crafted new features to appeal especially to fans. Players can now create a ‘squad’ of their favorite characters, and collect outfits which equip their runners with special abilities.”
