Tilting Point, developer AN Games and MGM are bringing the hugely popular Stargate franchise into the universe of the immersive real-time strategy MMO ASTROKINGS in a limited time event. This event, starting today and running until 26th May, will bring the series’ best loved characters to fans of ASTROKINGS.
The Stargate SG-1 cross-over event will bring fan-favourite characters Samantha Carter, Daniel Jackson, Teal’c and more, along with the Daedalus-class battlecruiser, the Odyssey. Players will be able to enjoy a new cross-over narrative that will bring the rich world of Stargate SG-1 to life.
Since the arrival of the Stargate movie in 1994 fans have fallen for the universe that is filled with Goa’uld, Wraith, Ori and the Tau’ri. The franchise features the original movie with Kurt Russell and James Spader, 3 TV series (though I loathe to call Stargate Universe canon), an animated series and a web series, not to mention the countless games, comic books, trading cards etc. In short, Stargate has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of sci-fi lovers (in my opinion it’s the best sci-fi series).
“The huge scale of ASTROKINGS and its fantastic galaxy-spanning storylines make it a perfect fit with the Stargate universe, which has been inspiring fans for nearly 30 years,” said Samir Agili, Co-CEO and president of Tilting Point. “We’re excited to see the huge player-base experience this special event with their favorite Stargate characters.”
Robert Marick, Executive Vice President, MGM Global Consumer Products & Experiences, said, “ASTROKINGS is a thrilling destination for gaming and sci fi fans and we look forward to bringing one of our most popular and enduring properties, Stargate to the game. It’s a great opportunity for us to offer a new touchpoint to current fans of the franchise, as well as reach potential new fans.”
Players can take part in this limited time Stargate event now by downloading ASTROKINGS from Google Play or the App Store.
