WWE and The Rock Unveil "Rockpocalypse" Mobile Game
STAMFORD, Conn., April 1, 2013 – WWE, in partnership with WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, today announced its first-ever 3D action mobile game titled WWE Presents: Rockpocalypse. The free mobile app is available for download from Apple iTunes and Google Play for use on iOS iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices.
“This is WWE’s first ‘action strategy’ game and we’re thrilled that WWE Champion The Rock is right at the center of it,” said Perkins Miller, Executive Vice President of Digital Media, WWE. “Our fans have come to expect compelling content from WWE on every platform and this high energy game with customizable experiences will once again deliver.”
“I am excited to partner with WWE and some of the best game developers in the world to bring something cool for fans to play,” said The Rock. "Boots to Asses style app…this will be fun!”
The game takes place on the set of a fictional Hollywood studio where The Rock is filming his latest blockbuster. Without warning, everyone around him is infected with a disease and starts changing into destructive personalities. The Rock must discover the truth behind the contagion and put an end to it. Players control The Rock as he powers through each battle, all the while looking for clues to help unravel the mystery and stop the contagion. Available in-app purchases for equipment and skills allow players to enhance their game play.
The app was built in partnership with Thruster, a division of BottleRocket.
