26 March 2013 - Hampshire, UK/... Today Deep Silver announced the new Who Wants To Be A Junior Millionaire? Special Edition. Aimed at the younger generation, the new DLC for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions, features more than 600 questions from modern kids’ culture and topics such as geography, pop music, maths, TV & movies, history and general trivia. But it is not only a tough nut for the little ones – the whole family will be challenged on the way to the virtual million. With questions such as “Andorra has borders with how many countries?”, Who Wants To Be A Junior Millionaire? is fun across generations and will be available from March 27, 2013 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 and Windows PC.
This edition was produced in cooperation with 2waytraffic International, part of Sony Pictures Television, which owns and licenses the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? format around the world except in North America, Canada and Mexico.
It can be purchased (£2,49, 240 Microsoft Points) from the PlayStation® Store and the Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for Xbox 360® . It can also be purchased on Steam for Windows PC at a price of £2.49. Also from March 27, 2013, players will have the opportunity to buy the main game Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions together with the Who Wants To Be A Junior Millionaire? Special edition at a reduced price of €11,99 /£9,49 exclusively at the PlayStation® Store.
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions brings all the excitement and atmosphere of the original TV program into the home of the player, featuring over 1,200 questions from all fields of knowledge.
In Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions, contestants participate in the Fastest Finger First round and then scale a mountain of questions in the quest for that elusive virtual million, making judicious use of the three classic lifelines - 50:50, Ask The Audience and Phone-A-Friend. It’s a social experience, too: up to four friends can compete locally to outdo each other, with each person’s score dependent on his or her speed.
But the standout feature of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions is the introduction of special licensed question packs featuring the biggest names from movies and TV, themed question packs for different fields of knowledge such as Sports, Music or Movies and many more packs to come.
