We learned earlier this year that the game is in the works, and today's announcement sheds light on the plot and timing. Someone had leaked footage of the gameplay - which looked wonderful - but that was about it. And that's because the game is another mobile management simulation.
The game will allow players to assume the role of a new Delos Trainee who gains access to the parks' Training Simulations.
Watch Westworld FREE With a 7-Day Risk-Free HBO Trial! Not the theme park, unfortunately (or should that be fortunately?), but the new mobile game from Warner Bros.
Warner Brothers will work with Westworld producers and writers on the game, which is meant to "complement and augment the rich depth of the series", according to a statement from WB.
The game is set to launch in 2018 for both iOS and Android devices. Westworld's writers are working closely on the game, which looks to complement the show in an interesting way. This is where things get fun, as the player will be able to create their own version of Westworld. That means players will have full control over operations of the park, including the manufacturing and care of the parks' many AI hosts and guest requests. You can also check out a short trailer for the game posted down below.
Interactive Entertainment. Based on the popular HBO original series and produced by Kilter Films and WB Games San Francisco with development by Behavior Interactive, it places you right in the middle of the action. "We can't wait for fans to get their hands on the game to develop their own unique strategy to orchestrate and explore the flawless park experience".
