War of the Worlds Game and Updates

Originally Published: April 18, 2005

By now, most of you are probably already playing the game, but here’s a link to the War of the Worlds Online Game HERE »

This summer, the earth goes to war… and online gamers will be on the front lines of the battle.

Leading up to the June 29th global release of Paramount Pictures’/DreamWorks Pictures’ War of the Worlds, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, Paramount Pictures Interactive Marketing has debuted a human survival online game at WarOfTheWorlds.com.

A human-survival game that echoes the themes and real world environments of the film, the game calls upon players to rescue survivors, collect objects, and escape danger in varying combinations. Players will try to escape maze-like boards while avoiding cataclysmic alien destruction. The game is free for users worldwide and will be available in seven different languages. Designed as both a single and multi-player game, the game’s objectives are scaled to the number of people playing; in addition, multi-player boards will require players to work together to complete their mission. In the weeks approaching the film’s release, additional maps – of increasing complication and difficulty – will become available.

Also, Paramount has sent us updated International release dates for the film. Here they are as follows:
