Indiana Jones will make his debut into the social gaming world in a new chapter in Zynga's Adventure World game. The chapter is titled, "Indiana Jones and the Calendar of the Sun". In this chapter, players and their friends play as themselves alongside Indiana Jones as he whips, swings and runs over traps and beasties. He comes with his own weapons, gadgets and in-game animations. Players will also receive special collections that can be redeemed for a 'mystery box', which contains adventure 'goodies'. Items at launch include Archeology Term Paper, Satchel, Antidote, Glasses and a Journal. The new chapter includes a total of three maps at launch, which are the Jungle Approach, Lunar Mine and Mystery of the Moon Door and are available for all Adventure World players. More maps will be available in the coming weeks.
Indy's playing with you on Facebook
Here's how the story of the game goes. After crash landing off the coast of Central America, Indiana Jones makes safe passage and joins players on their adventure. Players meet Indiana Jones at the first map, Jungle Approach, where they learn of the Calendar of the Sun and begin their trek across deep jungles and ancient mines to find it. There’s just one problem: a competing group of evil adventurers already have a head start. The story takes place prior to the Indiana Jones films (circa 1934), and includes Forrestal, a rival adventurer, that was referenced in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Watch the video below to check out a trailer of the game. This chapter is a collaboration between LucasFilm and Zynga. The chapter is available to play on Facebook in 13 different languages, which include English, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Norwegian, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Swedish, Danish, Japanese and Dutch.
