A G.I Joe Facebook game is coming, people. G.I. Joe: Special Ops will launch in June on Facebook and Syfy Games.com, among other platforms.
Described as an "arena-based combat game," G.I. Joe: Special Ops allows gamers to join either the G.I Joe team or the villainous Cobra organization and access a huge catalog of iconic heroes and villains along with various weapons and vehicles.
"The G.I. JOE brand holds a special place in fans' hearts, and we're delighted to offer both those long-time fans and new players an action-packed gaming experience in a fresh and exciting way." Said Dave Howe, President of Syfy.
Old G.I. Joe isn't the only game in SyFy's pocket. It joins three other social media titles, detailed below:
Syfy Monster Island (Developer - Sneaky Games)
Inspired by Syfy's popular Saturday Original Movies (Sharktopus, Mega Python Vs Gatoroid), players hunt down and capture a cadre of bizarre monsters to discover the dark secrets of their origins.
Stardrift Empires (Developer - Blue Frog Gaming)
Players colonize planets, build massive fleets of warships and form alliances as they build their own intergalactic empire.
Rise of Villains (Developer - Eruptive Games) (Launch date: Spring)
Fans suit up as a super villain with an array of amazing powers and weapons to overthrow governments and take over cities in the ultimate fight for world domination.
