Knightfall is coming soon, and now viewers can join in the action with two new companion games.
History revealed more about these games in a press release. Check that out below.
“A+E Networks today announces two new companion games based on Knightfall, an original HISTORY drama series from A+E Studios focusing on the Knights Templar, debuting on Wednesday, December 6 at 10pm ET/PT. The games include A+E Networks’ first foray into the augmented reality world with Knightfall AR, an all-new technology that creates a highly immersive experience, and Knightfall: Rivals, a mobile card game available beginning Wednesday, November 15 on iOS, Android and Steam platforms.
Knightfall AR is an augmented reality experience that leverages Apple’s newest technology to create an experience right on your table. The game places you in the world of The Knights Templar as they seek to defend the city of Acre from an invading army and protect Christianity’s most prized relic, The Holy Grail. Players will learn about this fascinating time in history as they collect coins that provide facts about various soldiers and weapons. Knightfall AR will be available in December on iTunes and Google Play.
In Knightfall: Rivals – the Knights Templar have returned to their home in Paris after years of fighting in the Crusades, only to find themselves thrust into a new kind of war – a power struggle that threatens to destroy their entire order. Take on real players to help determine the course of history in this card-collecting game. Knightfall: Rivals is a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
HISTORY’s new drama series Knightfall, premiering on Wednesday, December 6 at 10PM ET/PT, begins after the fall of the city of Acre, the Templar’s last stronghold in the Holy Land, where the Holy Grail is lost. Years later, a clue emerges suggesting the whereabouts of the Grail and sends the Templars, led by the noble, courageous and headstrong Templar Knight Landry (Tom Cullen, Downton Abbey, Gunpowder), on a life or death mission to find the lost Cup of Christ. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the dark events leading to the demise of the Templar Order on Friday the 13th, 1307 – a date which became synonymous with bad luck – the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now. Focusing on themes such as belief, sacrifice, politics, love, power and revenge – Knightfall goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks to find out who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.
Knightfall joins HISTORY’s original scripted roster, which includes anchor hit series “Vikings,” renewed for a 20 episode sixth season; military drama SIX, currently in production on season two; and the recently announced series Blue Book, executive produced by Academy Award and Golden Globe(R) winner Robert Zemeckis, and The Breach: Inside The Impeachment of Bill Clinton from Emmy(R) Award winning producer R.J. Cutler.
Knightfall is an A+E Studios production in association with The Combine, Island Pictures and Midnight Radio. Don Handfield (Touchback, The Founder, Kill the Messenger) and Richard Rayner (L.A. Without A Map) serve as creators and executive producers for The Combine, with Oscar(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominee Jeremy Renner (American Hustle, The Hurt Locker) also serving as executive producer. Island Pictures’ Dominic Minghella (Doc Martin, Robin Hood) is executive producer and showrunner. Executive producers for Midnight Radio are Jeff Pinkner (Lost, Fringe), Andre Nemec (Alias, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol), Josh Applebaum (Alias, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) and Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Beautiful Girls). Barry Jossen and Douglas Mackinnon serve as executive producers. Arturo Interian is the executive in charge of production for HISTORY. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for Knightfall.”
