Gameloft announced it has signed a multi-year agreement with 20th Century Fox to develop, publish and distribute LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD, the official mobile game of the sequel to the famous film series. The game will be exclusive to the mobile platform and will launch worldwide shortly before LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD's theatrical release on June 27, 2007.
In the film, Bruce Willis reprises his role as John McClane, a heroic police officer determined to take on and neutralize terrorists at any cost. The mobile game's storyline stays true to the feature film -- a criminal plot targeting the nation's computer infrastructure threatens the technological foundations of the U.S. economy.
"The DIE HARD series has been extremely successful and we are pleased to be working with 20th Century Fox to extend the brand experience to mobile phones," said Gonzague de Vallois, vp, Gameloft. "The fans of the DIE HARD films are literally -- 'die-hard,' and we are eager to deliver a game that brings the action, intrigue and humor of the movie, to gamers and fans alike."
