Company Expands Offering of Social Games Based On Popular Television Series
Paris, France – October 27, 2011– Today, Ubisoft announced that it is expanding its line-up of social games on Facebook based on hit television series, including new games based on “CSI™: Miami,” “HOUSE™,” and “NCIS™.” Developed by Ubisoft Shanghai, Method and Ubisoft San Francisco, CSI™: Miami, House, M.D.™: Critical Cases and NCIS™: Major Crimes all will be released on Facebook during the company’s fiscal 2012.
“Ubisoft continues to focus on delivering a diverse portfolio of quality content across all platforms to please our fans,” said Stephanie Perotti, Worldwide Director of Casual and Online Studios, Ubisoft. “Our license-based Facebook titles have performed well this year, including The Smurfs & Co. and CSI: Crime City. With CSI: Miami, House, M.D.: Critical Cases and NCIS: Major Crimes, we’re giving more fans new ways of being a part of and sharing in their favorite fictional worlds.”
In House, M.D.™: Critical Cases, fans of the hit television show “HOUSE™” will have the opportunity to join House and his entire team to diagnose the most challenging medical cases at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. True to the show, players will screen clinic patients, investigate symptoms, and examine environmental causes in order to prescribe the right treatments and cure patients. The game can be played with friends who can help out by performing diagnostic tests, treating referrals, and reviving crashed patients. House, M.D.™: Critical Cases will launch in 2011.
Based on the #1 television drama series “NCIS™,” NCIS™: Major Crimes takes players on a journey through the gritty processes of a naval crime scene investigation. By taking on the role of a junior investigator, or ‘Probie,’ players will work alongside “NCIS™” characters as they work crime scenes, interrogate suspects, and visit memorable locations from the show, such as Abby’s lab. Fans also will be able to partner with their friends to form Field Teams capable of unraveling the most brutal murders, acts of terrorism and cases of international intrigue. NCIS™: Major Crimes will debut on Facebook in early 2012.
CSI™: Miami features Horatio Caine and his famous sunglasses, with new crime-solving game play in the fabulously exotic locations of Miami. Friends work together to uncover evidence, interrogate suspects, build out their high-tech labs and discover the grisly truth about Miami's most challenging crimes. CSI™: Miami will be available in early 2012.
Ubisoft will also release licensed Facebook games for “CSI™: New York” and “NCIS™: LOS ANGELES.” Additional details about these games will be revealed soon.
