Linkin Park Recharge – Wastelands Now Available on the App Store
Hit international rock band Linkin Park today announced the official launch of the 3D action game “Linkin Park Recharge – Wastelands”. Developed in close cooperation with Swiss games company Kuuluu Interactive Entertainment AG, the iPad game is available now on the App Store. With the game, players receive exclusive access to the song “Wastelands” prior to its release on Linkin Park’s album “The Hunting Party” due mid-June.
Linkin Park Recharge – Wastelands is a third person action shooter with tactical elements set in the not too distant future. The Earth is a barren desert. Its people have exhausted all the planet’s natural resources through their insatiable appetite for more. Society and the few remaining energy stores are now under the control of machines, the Hybrids, and an elite minority.
As a member of a specialized resistance unit, the player will fight through hostile territory and complete missions through judicious use of resources. The enemies are the “Hybrids,” a race of genetically engineered bio-mechanical androids who rule over the post-apocalyptic planet. The player will travel through the hostile wastelands on different missions with the aim of depriving the Hybrids of the energy they so badly need. When beaten, some Hybrids will relinquish rare and powerful equipment and valuable crystals, the currency of the Resistance.
Players will put their tactical skills to the test in over 50 missions, and compete against friends to rise up the online leaderboards.
Linkin Park, also appearing as game characters in LP RECHARGE – WASTELANDS, wants to do more than simply entertain. The band is aiming to highlight the problems of energy poverty and promote better management and use of our planet‘s resources. Founded in 2005, the non-profit organization Music For Relief supports victims of natural disasters and projects for clean energy. The Power The World program also aims to help people for whom inadequate energy supply has a negative impact on health, education, safety and general quality of life.
Linkin Park Recharge – Wastelands is available for download on the App Store for the iPad for $2.99. In-App Purchases are available but can be disabled through your iPad settings. The latest version of iOS is recommended.
