The interstellar strategy game takes place in the years that lead up to the beginning of the film, and delves into the backstory of the ever-expanding metropolis of Alpha.
The following synopsis for ‘Valerian: City Alpha’ has been released:
In ‘Valerian: City of Alpha,’ you’ll get to experience, firsthand, the thrill of creating this “City of a Thousand Planets.” The interstellar mobile strategy game takes place in the years that lead up to the beginning of the film and allows you to interact with all of the unforgettable and uber cool alien worlds that Besson and his production team are about to put on the big screen.
Put your strategy and optimization skills to the test while you blast through the vastness of space searching for previously undiscovered worlds and alien species. You’ll get to explore some pretty dangerous corners of the universe and there’s no telling what’s out there! You might wind up stranded on a bizarre planet where sound doesn’t exist or fleeing back to your shuttle after negotiations with a primitive tribe of interstellar warriors doesn’t quite go as planned. But that’s not all. You’ll need to hire new agents to help you out along the way, release probes to scan previously unexplored zones and match species strengths to unlock special bonuses.
‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ is the latest movie from writer-director Luc Besson. The filmmaker’s latest action movie is based on Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières’ ground-breaking comic book series, ‘Valerian and Laureline,’ which is published by Dargaud.
“Spil Games impressed us with their vision and understanding of the world of Valerian,” said Virginie Besson-Silla, who worked as a producer on ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.’ “We are very excited and feel they are the perfect partner to help us share Valerian with the gaming universe.”
“We’re excited and honored to be making the game for Luc. I believe we can really intensify the audience experience around the themes and ideas within the movie,” said Tung Nguyen-Khac, Spil Games’ CEO.
