Marmalade Game Studio’s The Game of Life 2 launches on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S
The Game of Life 2 brings modern choices to a classic title, updating gameplay for a whole new audience, while maintaining the heart of the original
The base game includes 2 best-selling worlds, Fairytale Kingdom and Haunted Hills
Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players can join their friends and family on mobile, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation
After topping the charts on multiple platforms, winning the Pocket Gamer Award for Best Board Game, and delighting fans around the world, The Game of Life 2 has arrived on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles.
The Game of Life 2 follows Hasbro’s classic and beloved board game, The Game Of Life, played by millions of friends and families in over 50 countries around the world, and it’s received over 345 million views on YouTube and Twitch.
The Game of Life 2 is a contemporary take on the classic board game with modern choices and a more modern gameplay structure. Just like the original, players hop in their chosen car, spin the spinner and set off on their life journey, encountering choices as they move through life. However, thanks to an added Crossroad moment later in the game, players have more chances to make important decisions.
In The Game of Life 2, players can save marriage and college, house buying, and pet adoption, for later in the game. Vitally, players now earn points for choices that improve Knowledge and Happiness, as well as Wealth, giving them the opportunity to strive for a balanced lifestyle! What’s more, instead of reaching the end of the road and automatically ending the game in retirement, players can choose to continue their journey and fulfill their bucket list!
With a bright, fun, fully animated Classic City world PLUS the best-selling Fairytale Kingdom and Haunted Hills worlds INCLUDED with the base game, The Game of Life 2 provides hours of fun for the whole family.
All Marmalade Game Studio games support cross-platform multiplayer. So, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S owners can play with friends and family on mobile, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation. They can enjoy multiple modes, including Open Online Multiplayer, Private Online Multiplayer, Offline Local Multiplayer, and Offline Single Player.
Michael Willis, CO-CEO of Marmalade Game Studio, said: “When creating an adaptation of an original game it’s important to appeal to both new and established players, and The Game of Life 2 has seen extraordinary success with fans around the world. Launching the game on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S is an exciting next step, allowing more friends and families to connect through this classic title. We love it, the fans love it, and we can’t wait for you to play it.”
Marmalade Game Studio has released multiple best-selling board game adaptations, reviving classic titles for new audiences and bringing people together via remote cross-platform play. Their latest release introduces The Game of Life 2 to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, following huge audience demand.
