Gameloft, Hasbro Announce Trivial Pursuit & Friends for Mobile

Inspired by the popular board game, Trivial Pursuit & Friends will offer multiple game modes to test players' knowledge.

Digital and social game publisher Gameloft, in partnership with Hasbro, has announced Trivial Pursuit & Friends for mobile devices. The multiplayer game will allow players to compete against others in trivia challenges inspired by the classic board game, and will offer multiple game modes for testing one’s knowledge.

Trivial Pursuit & Friends will introduce new questions to players, as well as new ways to play. The game’s Duel Mode will allow players to compete against their friends or strangers to answer quiz questions in real time, while the Blitz Mode will test four players in a game focused on speed.

Finally, weekly events will allow players to complete new specially-themed quizzes each week. As players complete these quizzes, they’ll climb the game’s leaderboards and will have a chance to win ‘exclusive rewards.’

In a comment, Mark Blecher, senior vice president of business development and digital gaming at Hasbro, commented:
