‘The Vampire Diaries’ Facebook Game Launches! Play Now!
Great news for all of the Vampire Diaries fans looking to kill time while they wait for the latest episode! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment just announced the launch of The Vampire Diaries: Get Sucked In, a new game playable on Facebook. Based on the vamp-tastic show the game is free and available to all Vampire Diaries fans with a Facebook account. Woot!
According to the official press release, The Vampire Diaries: Get Sucked In extends the supernatural story of the TV series about two vampire brothers who fall in love with the same beautiful girl. Players begin their own journey of discovery as they explore the town of Mystic Falls and complete missions given to them by characters from the TV series. These missions lead players deeper into the mysteries and events that are unraveling in this pleasant, yet dangerous town.
“The Vampire Diaries: Get Sucked In will draw Facebook fans in with gameplay that builds upon key plot lines involving their favorite characters from The CW’s most popular series,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Now players of the game will get to delve deeper into the engaging mysteries that have made The Vampire Diaries a hit.”
“The Vampire Diaries: Get Sucked In allows fans to participate in a social game that extends beyond The CW’s Thursday episode broadcast and provides an immersive experience for them to visit the world of Mystic Falls — populated with the characters they love — all week,” added Lisa Gregorian, Chief Marketing Officer, Warner Bros. Television Group. “The game is fang-tastic.”
Players will be able to explore the Vampire Diaries world using the game’s interactive map to move through key locations and uncover dark secrets about the town and its residents, playing games that test their knowledge of The Vampire Diaries along the way.
Now, while the game is free to play, that doesn’t mean that ALL of it is free. To get extra in-game items, open special prize chests and unlock new areas on the map you will need to use Facebook credits, which cost real money. Boo!
But that’s not too bad, you are still able to play the game for free, you just don’t get the extra goodies.
I played the game for a while and it appears to be one of the few well-made Facebook games out there. The music is great, the graphics are appealing and it keeps you entertained – perfect for any Vampire Diaries fan.
Play it HERE.
Have any of you played it yet? If so, what did you think?
Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
