Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNGA), a global leader in interactive entertainment,
today announced the launch of its fast-paced battle royale game, Tiny
Royale™, exclusively on Snap Inc’s (NYSE: SNAP)
new real-time multiplayer gaming platform, Snap Games.
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:
Tiny Royale™ is a top-down multiplayer shooter that
reinvents the battle royale experience for the Snapchat platform. Tiny
Royale™ lets players choose custom characters and squad up with
friends or battle solo for quick two-minute rounds to loot and shoot
their way to victory. Up to 30 players can battle at a time, forming
squads of up to four friends. As players progress they can unlock
characters and collect weapons and health packs while the map shrinks
during the match until only one player, or team, remains.
“We are thrilled to be one of the first companies to launch a gaming
experience on Snapchat,” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at
Zynga. “Game developers rarely get the opportunity to create an entirely
new experience on an emerging platform so our team was excited to remix
the battle royale genre into a fast-paced game designed to rock on Snap
“Snap Games is all about exploring new ways for friends to play together
and Tiny Royale™ is the perfect example of that,” said
Will Wu, Snap’s Head of Snap Games. “We jumped at the chance to have a
global leader in mobile games like Zynga develop for our platform, and
we can’t wait to see what our community thinks about this new way to
connect with each other.”
Snap Games is designed for synchronous mobile gameplay between friends,
and built on the powerful PlayCanvas game engine. The platform, which
launched in April, features a curated selection of original and
third-party titles. Starting today, Snapchatters will be able to dive
into Tiny Royale™ instantly from Snapchat’s messaging
feature, Chat. Players can also seamlessly communicate with their
friends through both text and voice-based Chat features during game
play, bringing live conversation—and way more fun—to the Tiny
Royale™ gaming experience on Snapchat.
Tiny Royale™ will also be launching a ranked matchmaking
feature this summer called Tiny Royale™ Leagues. The
feature will foster a more competitive environment for
players by placing them in groups of 100 people, broken out into 20
tiers. Players will battle to climb tier ranks over limited time
windows, earning trophies and rewards based on their performance.
